Anne Elise Wouters always has had a passion for dancing. As a little girl she could spend hours dancing on her mom’s viola music, in the livingroom, wearing her princess dress.
As a teenager she joined her highschool’s Theatre & Dance Program, in which she was trained in a wide range of dance styles and perofming multiple times a year in special show cases and theatre productions.
During these teenage years she noticed that salsa was the style she loved the most. She decided to take classes on a weekly basis, which quickly went to multiple times a week, joining different showteams and performing nationally and abroad.
At Amsterdam University she participated in the Global Exchange Program, in which she could chose herself where in the world she wanted to study for 6 months. The choice was easy: she packed her bags and left for New York City, the world capital of dance. After taking classes of different teachers in the city, she joined Yamuleé Dance Company, because their work ethic and drivenness spoke to her.
For 4 years she has been trained and developed herself at Yamuleé Dance Company to become the strongest salsa dancer, instructor and performer she can be, to be able to share her knowledge, techniques and love for salsa dancing with the whole wide world.
