EVENT PRODUCER AND DANCE INSTRUCTOR

Laura “Lolita” has always loved dance. Whether she was taking ballet, performing with an amateur dance company or dancing at the Broken Spoke in Austin, Texas, she loves dance! She has also enjoyed teaching many different people of all ages in sports and dance.

In 2007, she had an idea, to produce one big community Salsa event in Boise, Idaho. She asked her friend DJ Giovanni to be the DJ for the event. With the help of some wonderful people she and DJ Giovanni produced the first Idaho Salsa Congress. It was a hit! The Knitting Factory General Manager was impressed and thought it would be a good idea to try a few monthly Salsa events, and the rest is history!
