Ana Gherasim


Ana is the owner and founder of Azucar, as well as our definitive proof that anyone can learn to dance. Discouraged from pursuing dance from a young age, she grew up convinced that she had two left feet. She (slowly) took up salsa in 2008, fell in love with social dancing, and never looked back. She loves deepening her salsa and bachata skills in equal measure, as well as exploring new dance styles. A lifelong learner and educator, Ana is passionate about the pedagogy of dance and is always looking for ways to tweak and improve her own teaching as well as Azucar’s teaching style and philosophy.
