More on Viko and Allison
Allison and Viko met while dancing salsa in San Francisco in 2009. Viko had prior experience with latin dances from growing up in Mexico, and Allison has a background in ballet. They discovered West Coast Swing when they first moved to Charlottesville in 2012 and have been hooked ever since. Over the past 10 years, Allison and Viko have enjoyed the constant evolution of this dance. They believe that understanding the fundamentals of the dance and learning to create within that framework is more important than memorizing specific patterns, and they look forward to sharing their WCS journey with you.
