HAWAII SALSA FESTIVAL INSTRUCTORS

Michelle Holland & Chris Alonzo

Hawaii Salsa Fest Instructors

Michelle Holland
Michelle is fourth generation Alaskan who was first exposed to Salsa at a Christmas party. Michelle fell in love with the dance because of the diversity Salsa offered in the ages, races and professions among the dancers. She began collecting instructional videos, became a regular at the local Latin club and she started traveling around the country to Salsa Congresses in an effort to get as much training as possible. Michelle is now a certified Salsa instructor through DVIDA Ballroom and Edie’s Professional Instructors Course. Michelle owns the Alaska Dance Promotions studio and is the host of the Alaska Salsa Festival.

Chris Alonzo
Originally from Arizona, Chris was part of a Rueda Dance Team in ASU. Arizona exposed him to 4 years of excellent Salsa instruction. In Alaska he began to pursue a career as a dance instructor. With extensive study and preparation Chris took the Salsa DVIDA Ballroom Instructors test and passed with high honors. Chris also traveled to Washington DC where he took the instructors training program with Edie the Salsa Freak. Again Chris passed with flying colors. Chris Alonzo and Michelle Holland have been working together for just over a year. Chris currently teaches classes and the dance teams at Alaska Dance Promotions.
