Ana is definitive proof that anyone can learn to dance. Discouraged from pursuing dance from a young age, she grew up convinced that she had two left feet. She (slowly) took up salsa in 2008, fell in love with social dancing, and never looked back. She loves deepening her salsa and bachata skills in equal measure, and loves exploring new dance styles.
A lifelong learner and educator, Ana is passionate about the pedagogy of dance and is always looking for ways to tweak and improve her own teaching as well as Azucar’s teaching style and philosophy.

Ana has a knack for breaking down patterns and figuring out why a move didn’t quite turn out right. If your moves or technique are in need of “troubleshooting”, or if you’d like help breaking down a particularly challenging footwork or partnering pattern, she’s probably the instructor for you. Her second love is encouraging dancers to find their own style, through practice and self-awareness.
