Rudy Telles Jr. has been an active competitor in various sports throughout his life, lettering in basketball, wrestling, and tennis in high school, and learning, competing in, and teaching Brazilian jiu jitsu, Muay Thai, and mixed martial arts during and after college. After a slew of injuries, Rudy decided to shift his competitive focus and learn salsa dancing at Salsa with Silvia, taking as many classes as possible both at the studio and at various social dance venues throughout the D.C.

Salsa With Silvia instructors Jennifer Trotter and Rudy Telles won 1st place in Amateur Small Team division at the World Salsa Summit in Miami, FL, 2016 as part of the Dynamix dance team.

Rudy was hooked on salsa from day one, and has since gained experience as a performer in Silvia’s Amika Dance Company and as a member of DC’s Dynamix dance group, with whom he won the amateur team category at the prestigious World Salsa Summit and finished in the top 8 in the amateur team category at the World Latin Dance Cup. He will also be performing and competing in the couple’s division during the 2016 season. Although not exposed to the world of latin dancing until adulthood, his mother was a high school dance coach and both of his older sisters were both dancers and competitive division 1 college cheerleaders. Based on his own experiences, Rudy believes that quickly developing a competent base of dance technique and musicality will allow an aspiring social dancer to thrive on the dance floor, and he is excited to share his own experiences with others
