William has always had Salsa in his soul. Growing up in El Salvador, dancing plays a big part in family gatherings and town festivals. It’s just not a party or a celebration without music and dance! It’s what brings people together even in the hardest of times.
Now residing in Regina, Saskatchewan, William shares his love and passion for dance in our Queen City. He began teaching Salsa for fun with the University of Regina Salsa Club in 2001. Since then, his love for teaching has grown immensely and in 2005 William founded the Regina Salseros Dance Class®; Regina’s very first Salsa School!

William and the Regina Salseros also host the longest running and most anticipated Salsa nights in the City and have watched the salsa community grow throughout the years. The community has grown so much in fact, that former students of William’s have become a part of the Regina Salseros teaching staff while others have branched out to teach at other schools in the city. William is proud to say that the Regina Salseros have been such an influential part in creating a sound dance community in a city that may never have otherwise experienced the absolute joy Salsa brings!
