Stuart has been dancing salsa for over twenty years. He originally took it up to meet new people after university and hasn’t looked back since.
Stuart has been teaching the beginners class for SalsaBug for the last four years. He thoroughly enjoys teaching beginners and quotes “Teaching the beginners class is so rewarding.
