Waldo and Jacqui Solano, the heart and soul of SalsaKnox, bring over 40 years combined experience and a deep love of Salsa to their in person and global Salsa community.  Their journey began with a shared vision: to create a space where the rhythm of salsa could thrive and where individuals from all walks of life could come together to learn and share their passion for dance. Over the years, they have taught and inspired more than 20,000 individuals, shaping novices into skilled dancers and spreading the joy of salsa across Knoxville.

At SalsaKnox, we offer a diverse range of classes catering to all skill levels - from absolute beginners to advanced dancers. Our curriculum covers not just salsa, but also bachata, cumbia and merengue, ensuring a well-rounded Latin dance education. Our teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that dance is for everyone. It's not just about learning steps; it's about expressing yourself, connecting with others, gaining confidence, and experiencing the pure joy that comes from moving to Latin beats.
