Tutor: Brooke Hendrick

Brooke has been dancing since the age of 3 and has been taught by some of the most inspirational dancers n South America. She has training in classical ballet, jazz, tap and contemporary. Brooke lived and studied Afro-Brazilian dance daily in Brazil for 8 months. It was here that she realised that African-based Latin dance styles were exactly what she was made to do, and she left Brazil to continue her journey, dancing around South America. Once in Mexico she got a job as a dancer and entertainer in a hotel in Cancun where she learnt a variety of Latin dance styles including Salsa, Cumbia and Rumba. Now back in Australia Brooke is focused on teaching and is excited to pass onto people the energetic and inspiring dance styles that she has brought back from Latin America.
