Jennifer Trotter has been a salsa on 1 instructor at the Salsa With Silvia studio since the very beginning of its existence in DC (2011).  Jennifer Trotter began dancing when she was 13 years old, starting with tap, jazz, ballet, and lyrical. Two years later she began competing with Creative Dance Center in Chantilly, VA. While in college at the University of Mary Washington she joined the Performing Arts Club where she had the opportunity to choreograph two contemporary dance pieces for her fellow students. In her junior year she studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador, where she was first introduced to salsa. She started by taking classes at Latin Dance Center in Quito, and shortly thereafter entered an international dance competition with their team, taking home a bronze medal to the USA. After graduating college and moving to DC, Jennifer began taking several classes in all different styles, and it was there that she met Silvia!  Since 2011 Jennifer has been teaching at the Salsa With Silvia dance studio, sharing her love of dance with all her students. She performed with Silvia’s Amika Dance Company for several years and now is a member of Dynamix Dance Team where she continues to excel in her performance career.

Rudy Telles joined our team of instructors at the beginning of 2016 but was a member of the studio’s performance team (Amika Dance Company) prior to that. 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.

We are super thrilled to have Jennifer and Rudy on our team of great instructors and we look forward to many more future successes.
