Jorge Ulloa-Medina has been dancing for 26 years and teaching for 24. He dances Salsa, Merengue, Marinera and dances from the Peruvian Andes. He has received dance lessons in Peru (Villarreal University), Cuba (Varadero) ,Germany(Heidelberg) and the UK (La Tasca, Copacabana). He teaches Peruvian Salsa in England and Europe.
