Greg Henry began dancing professionally at age 3 in
Seville, Espana. At age 6 he moved to San Hose California where his mother a Flamengo
Performer had adance troupe. They performed for several years till his mother learned English
after that they performed at private functions until Greg was 18 years old. Greg went to college
then nursing school and joined the army in order to follow a life long dream to move to Hawaii.
Once in Hawaii in 1988, Greg danced monern techno. He moved back to the mainland for ten
years and studied American rhythm and American smooth style dances in San
Francisco and Sam Diego. Returning to Hawaii to live out the rest of his life he discovered a
true need for a full time professional dance instructor.
Greg started the Hot Salsa Dance Company aptly named because of an article in the Honolulu
Advertiser that proclaimed "Now there is real Hot Salsa". So he regestered the name, got a client
base and has worked everyday since to share the spirit of dance with all in
Hawaii and those who come to visit.
