Raquel, Director of Salsabor is the recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to the Development of Australia’s Latin Dance Industry Award.

Raquel says her motivation has always been the satisfaction she receives from watching the Latin dance scene grow and transform. “It makes me so proud to see that students I have taught become instructors, performers, and the next generation of new and upcoming dancers.”

She is very happy to play a part of carrying on the legacy of Latin dance in Australia, and is very excited about continuing to bring something new and exciting to the Latin dance scene in Canberra.
