Having discovered salsa whilst living in Italy, Hilary started to take classes in Leeds, UK in 1994; she caught the salsa ’bug’ immediately. She came to Ireland in 1998 and began teaching shortly after.
Hilary’s philosophy is that dance is about having fun and meeting people while at the same time acquiring a new skill. Hilary has been a salsa promoter in Ireland since 1998.
She currently teaches classes in salsa and cardiosalsa, and workshops in merengue, bachata and cha cha cha. She has also has a keen interest in tango, East Coast swing and Lindy Hop. She organises and participates in salsa events nationwide and also DJs.
