Cathy first began dancing aged 7, and up to the age of 10 she learnt and took (IDTA) exams in many Latin and Ballroom dances (Foxtrot, Tango, Cha Cha, Waltz, Jive Rumba, Quickstep and Disco!).
It was in September 2006, when a friend and her decided to go travelling around Cuba, that someone suggested that she try Salsa classes in preparation for her visit - her feet have barely touched the ground since..! Cathy was immediately hooked and since then has been on numerous Salsa weekends and holidays, and as many parties as she can fit in - Salsa has now become a major part of her life (as all of her long lost non-Salsa friends will tell you!).
Cathy started taking lessons with Angus at Abanico Salsa in the summer of 2007 and was captivated by his entertaining approach to Salsa - and his choice of music.
