About Us

 

The Yemaya Salsa Dance Company was founded by Emelie Andagan & Heather Wong-Xoquic in October, 2000. Emelie learned to dance salsa after only a few years due to her extensive dance background of over 20 years and many years of experience as a ballet and jazz student, and later a teacher at the Ballet Theatre of Dover Dance Conservatory. The troupe started as a small group of only four couples that rehearsed twice a week in various garages and practically anywhere with a smooth surface. Our company has grown ever since and has been entertaining audiences in the Sacramento area community and beyond, thanks to the support of many of our associates, friends and family. Thank you to all who are part of or have been a part of the Yemaya Salsa Dance Company and continue to support us.

The Yemaya Salsa Dance Company is recognized by the State of California as a non-profit public benefit corporation.
