Welcome to Latin Soul Dance Studio!
Latin Soul Dance Studio was founded by Angela Alfaro, who has dance and music as an integral part of life! She has danced off most of the gravel situations and thus assisting in making people believe that how shaking legs on the beats of Bachata, Merengue, Salsa, Cha Cha Cha, etc., can work as a meditative shield to all the negativity.
The founder of The Latin Soul Dance Studio hails from El Salvador, Latin America, where dance is taught at an early age as a curriculum. Growing up on the beats of traditional dances, Angela has taken her love for dance to backyards and even civil wars. She states that "dancing with her friend in the middle of the civil war saved her and her friends from hearing bullets and bombs." If you are looking for this degree of passion and devotion towards dance, you know Latin Soul Dance is the right place.
Dance doesn't only help Angela to feel guarded emotionally but helped in giving her radiance and confidence physically. But unfortunately, she later associated yet another incidence of her life, where after completing her education in law and despite becoming a successful lawyer, she gained significant weight. That made her struggle with self-image self-confidence and pushed her to existential crises.
Then Zumba entered life!
In 2005 she came across the first Zumba DVD of Beto (the founder of Zumba), and it was love at first sight, and it is still her considerable passion and love to this day! Zumba helped her lose all the excess weight, and now this 40+something is in the best shape and looking forward to helping others too!
Traveling and dancing
Traveling, meeting her husband, and becoming a mother to two beautiful angels, as her life was taking a full circle, the one thing that never left her was dance.
Having an opportunity to experience life in various countries, Angela recalls how taking Zumba classes at every place made her feel like coming home. In fact, during her residence in Sevilla, she took her passion for dance to a different extent and studied flamenco while being a part of the salsa club.
Zumba has given her many new friends, and she could reflect the confidence and love to the highest degree. After meeting her loving husband in Panama and two kids, she became a housewife.
Later the zest of doing something new and undying passion for dance brought her to the idea of having her dancing studio.
This passionate by nature soul also has started her cake baking company after her friend taught her the art of making and decorating the cake, by the name Sugar Art, by Angie, wanna see my cakes?
In 2017, Angela's family moved from Panama to Costa Rica, where she met ZES (Zumba Educational Specialist) Heidy Torres and became a Zumba instructor. It was time to make her passion for her profession.
Angela remembers her words until this day "If you believe it, you can do it... Smile, connect! You have the magic."
In 2018 Angela and her family made their next stop in The Netherlands.
And here again, Zumba made her feel right at home!
So far, she has had a great opportunity and the commitment to improve the classes and teaching skills.
Everything has been moving very fast, and at the moment, she is teaching around ten classes a week in various schools and gyms in The Hague.
And now, she is beyond excited to start her studio, Latin Soul Dance, a studio that will bring you all the Latin flavors and experiences she carries with her.
I am very excited to meet you and share my passion for dance with you! - Angela
