Debbie Sherman UKA Quaified
Debbie learnt salsa for the first time in 2003 when she attended Tracie's Latin Club in Southampton and became addicted from that moment on. Until then, Debbie's love for dance had been in the clubs to RnB, Disco, Heavy Metal and Rock n' Roll!
Salsa unleashed a whole new level of self expression for Debbie and she was soon attending 3-4 nights weekly plus countless weekend events, travelling miles to get her salsa fix (which she still does to this day). It wasn't long before Debbie's teaching ambition was fulfilled as in 2005 she was part of the TLC team for Tracie Gooch. Debbie then joined Marcus and the SouthCoastSalsa team in 2008.
"Helping people to develop the Salsa dancer within them fills me with great joy, and it's just such great fun. I hope to continue to do so for many years to come..."
