American Style – Smooth & Rhythm
Sheldon Harding was first introduced to Salsa On1 in 2001 under the tutorship of Mr. Walter Diaz, a Venezuelan national. However, his first “taste” of Salsa On2 is attributed to visiting Puerto Rico for the Salsa Congress in 2003 and taking classes from the renowned Eddie Torres and Nelson Flores.
Since that time there has been no turning back for this passionate lover of this dance genre. He was determined to practice and perfect this style of dance even though in his country, Trinidad, the norm was and is still for most, to dance Salsa On1.
His quest to master Salsa On2 motivated him to make frequent visits to New York where he continued taking classes from Eddie Torres, Nelson Flores, Frankie Martinez and Alfred Pena, making him a very knowledgeable and experienced person to teach Salsa On2 in his country.
