About the Instructors
Edwin Roa, a native of Bogotá, Colombia, is a professional dancer who has devoted his career to the study of partner dance.

His interest in music, culture and partner dance have encouraged him to experiment and eventually develop a method of teaching social partner dance he named Zabor. He has danced with the Latin Ballet of Virginia, co-founded the Charlottesville Salsa Club and the Richmond Social Dance Club. Edwin is currently a faculty member at JMU in addition to offering his own Zabor classes in the central Virginia area.

Liz Reynolds, (yoga teacher, dancer, choreographer) fell in love with Cuban style salsa during a dance/music education tour during her undergraduate studies as a dance major. Since then she has studied salsa, rueda de casino, and afro-cuban folkloric dances while visiting Cuba and in 2002 was fortunate enough to perform with the Narciso Medina Compania de Danza in Havana. Liz currently teaches yoga at acac.
