Ana & Talek

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.

Talek Cameron


Talek began dancing in his early 20’s; he took lessons from anywhere he could and the more he learned, the more he discovered his new passion in life. Having no prior dance experience proved challenging. It wasn’t until he moved to Ottawa that he overcame that challenge by exposing himself to a new level of dancing. Today, Talek can be found performing on stage, social dancing (his favorite thing to do) and continuing to try and best himself. Talek is thrilled to now be able to share his passion in the classroom and help give back to the Latin dance scene.


Just like you, we've taken lots of dance classes over the years. With our online courses we took the best bits of what we learned, plus the features we wished we had when we were learning, and added what we heard was important to our students. The result is a fun and challenging course with lots of support and resources to help you get your dancing in top shape!

  • Master new techniques, add more than your run-of-the-mill styling, and link moves together like a pro!

  • We're here to answer your questions through interactive discussions on each video lesson.

  • Boost your connection to the music with our song recommendations and musicality tips.

  • Join a supportive community of dancers who encourage and inspire each other to grow!
