Prior to his Salsa Journey, Umesh has been dancing different styles from college years but has been a avid salsa dancer for the past few years. Umesh has assisted other instructors at various classes in the Bay. A prior regular at Miraido's and other local salsa hotspots, he currently dances semi-pro for the Montuno Dance Company under the tutelage of Isidro Corona and Ariel Lehaitre ( US Salsa open champions).
Umesh was teaching Fridays with Ali Monge soon after Meri and Ryan stopped teaching. Umesh and Ali brought a very unique and challenging style in their classes.
Umesh and Ali were with us during the final week that we were open in San Jose.
