Together they bring you the hottest and most sensual Bachata moves on the dance floor!
Jig & Senora Gillespie
Senora and Jig have been eating, drinking and sleeping dance for more than 25 years. After training in ballet, jazz and modern dance, Senora performed professionally with the Joel Hall Dancers in Chicago and with Denver’s nationally known Cleo Parker Robinson Ensemble. Since retiring from the stage, she has been teaching salsa with her husband, Jig, for 15 years. She is also a certified yoga and Zumba instructor and leads a Zumba class each week. Jig has an extensive background in theater and 25 years ago he turned to dance. Since he had more experience in partner dancing then she did, Senora gave him a chance when they met in a “west coast swing class” 20 years ago on January 5th, 1993. Soon they fell in love with salsa and each other and studied with the “King of the Mambo” Eddie Torres himself, and continued their education with other salsa royalty such as Felipe Polanco, Josie Neglia, the Vasques brothers, world salsa champion Oliver Pineda, Edie the “salsa freak” and Al “Liquid Silver” Espinosa, and too many other salsa greats to mention here!
For 15 years La Rumba has been like a second home to them, where they have been hosting the great “Get Your Sexy On” salsa class every Thursday at 8PM where they teach a hot new salsa move every week. Their student performance group “Luna Azul” has performed at La Rumba many times and will be burning up the floor here again soon. They also teach other club dances like bachata, cha-cha-cha, swing and more. The pair are available for parties, private lessons and wedding packages.
