About the dance tutor: Elsie Deane has been dancing since age 7, beginning with ballet and moving on to embrace many other styles as a teen including jazz, tap, hiphop, cabaret, contemporary, and ballroom. After having her daughter, she rediscovered a previous love of latin dance styles, finding enjoyment in performing and competing in teams and with a dance partner, and learning how to dance salsa socially – it’s natural habitat.

Soon focusing almost exclusively on the intricacies of Latin dance styles, she felt at home with the rhythms and honest expression of these dances.

Before beginning to homeschool, Elsie coached teams for competitions in NZ and Australia, taught regular technique classes, and gave private lessons for students looking for more detailed instruction.
