Yessenia Noriega also known as “Yessy,” started falling in love with the art of dance in high school by taking electives such as modern, jazz, ballet and hip hop for her junior and senior year. The following year after graduating, she was asked to participate in the “alumni division” of a Latin Dance Competition that her high school was competing in. She decided to give it a try and won first place 3 years in a row. Since then, her and Latin dance have been inseparable. Born and raised in Maryland, she joined a semipro Latin dance team in DC called “Cazike.” She performed at congresses and dance events across the “DMV” and it was then she realized just how in love with dance she was. She decided to dedicate all of her free time to Latin dance by continuing to be a part of her dance team and learning how to social dance. In September 2015 she decided it was time for a fresh start and moved hundreds of miles to South Florida. She continued her “addictionship” with dance by joining our Dancing Through Life team and she’s now embarked on her newest journey: teaching. She’s so passionate about dance and wants to spread her knowledge amongst others in hopes that it’ll bring them the happiness it brings her. Join her for class today, she looks forwards to teaching you!
