About Roberto and Jenna

Roberto, born and proudly raised in the island of Mauritius, Roberto has been moving to music as far back as he can remember. The rhythm of 'Sega', the Folkloric Mauritian music and dance 'always sends shivers down my spine'. A combination of African drumming, Clave and its unique addictive beat, has helped to make Roberto the dancer he is today. As a teenager, hip hop, street jazz and funk became the most popular form of dance that he learnt and performed.

His love for salsa dancing started when he studied and worked in UK/London. In 1995, Roberto joined the Afro-Cuban Dance School then went on to learn the Columbian & LA styles. After several years enjoying the London salsa scene, it was in 2002 that Roberto developed a real passion for the Mambo/ On2 NY style salsa.

Roberto has since taught, choreographed, competed performed in various events in Mauritius, UK, and in 3 yrs in Australia; incl Sydney Salsa Congress, Brisbane Latin Dance Congress, Doudoule Salsa Camp and countless events, salsa clubs and parties in and around Brisbane and Gold Coast. Together with his dance partner''Jenna", Roberto is the 2008 Queensland Champion for the On2/Mambo category, 2009 Queensland Champion for the Professional Couples Category.

With his unique blend of style, musicality and body expression, he has always brought a charismatic persona to the dance floor. Now living and dancing at the Gold Coast & Brisbane, Roberto is proud to contribute in the development and promotion the On2/Mambo Salsa style in this vibrant and exciting part of the world.

Jenna has been dancing since an early age with extensive training in Ballroom, New Vogue and Latin American, having won various titles such as the Queensland Champion, National Juvenile Champion and Australian Ballroom Champion in all three styles.

Jenna then fell into the world of Salsa through a family friend and hasn't been able to escape since then, she has received no formal training in Salsa, and has learnt and grown as a dancer through the social dance scene. Jenna has been dancing professional Salsa since mid 2008 teaming up with Roberto and together winning the Queensland Professional On2 Championship at the State Titles, and going on to place third in the Professional On2 division at the Australian Salsa Classic 2008.

Jenna has also had the opportunity to work with some amazing artists such as Claudio Gomes at the Brisbane Brazilian and Brisbane Latin Dance Congress 2008, Mafie Zouker on his Australian Tour in 2009, and has been a back-up dancer for singer Tiffany Wood at her Gold Coast appearance.
