WH Dance Academy Instructors

The instructors at WH Dance Academy have many years of dance experience. They were chosen by Wanda, not only for their talent, but also because they share her passion for dance. Each instructor has their own style of dancing - let us help you develop your style!

 

 

Felix Mateo

Drawn to the creativity and passion he witnessed at a Salsa social event, Felix was determined to learn to dance!

 

A sufferer of "two-left-feet syndrome," Felix's road to success was difficult, but his resolve and love for the dance helped him endure and make him a patient instructor.

 

Felix began by taking classes in the Reading and Philadelphia areas. He continues to learn, and earned his Salsa Certification from UV Latin Dance LLC.

 

Felix's relaxed teaching style makes him a favorite instructor of students of all levels. Let Felix help you take your salsa skills to the next level!
