In His

Learning the roots of bachata can sometimes be challenging if your spanish is limited. Sterling is a great teacher who can help non-spanish speaking students acceperate their bachata studies and is always improving his own English skills. Especially when social dancing, Sterling leads by example, so as a follower, you can always learn new techniques—as quickly as in one social dance.

In his own words

"I am a member of the MetaMovements Artist Collective, and I am dedicated to sharing my love for dance, music, language, and culture with others. I lead a group of dance hosts in the Dominican Republic who teach classes, perform, and lead animaciones. Additionally, I provide coordination for groups of travelers who are interested in exploring historical, cultural, and dance points of interest on the island. Whenever possible, I also work with children and youth, fostering their passion for these art forms."
