Danny Balderas has been in Milwaukee's salsa scene for the last 7 years, teaching for the last 4. His teaching style is best described as energetic and informative. When instructing to a group, he takes a "public school" approach (leave no student behind); assuring everyone grasps a concept before moving on. All of his weekly classes are for salsa, but by request he can teach merengue, cha-cha, cumbia, and bachata.
