Rachel went along to her first salsa class at the beginning of 2007 to partner a friend who was nervous about going alone. As she was looking for a new hobby to take up and a way of meeting new friends, it was a perfect opportunity!
She immediately became hooked on the enthusiasm and passion that was shown in the classes at The Grosvenor.
She became a regular at the Abanico Salsa classes and always dressed for the occasion! She looked forward to the monthly Saturday workshops and parties that she never missed. After progressing through the classes she started going along to Salsa DX classes in 2009 and again, loved the atmosphere. After attending many workshops further North of the country and in Spain, she was delighted to be asked to join the Abanico Salsa team as a teaching assistant earlier this year where she has been training hard to be able to assist Nick in teaching in Torquay.
