Dance Whispering is the art and science of partner dancing incorporating the basics of CONNECTION - breathing, aligning and interpreting energies - and understanding the formulaic fundamentals of lead and follow. It is the type of Connection on the dance-floor which allows our partners to enter a hypnotic and meditative dance trance in which leading and following become effortless.

"Connection: the act of connecting, the state of being connected, a physical link, a relationship or association between two separate entities..."that moment when two bodies move as one, when they synchronize their breath, their heartbeats, their pulse...when they both activate a higher level of sensitivity to each other and forget where each end and start...and instead look at themselves as one whole instead of two...the organic and natural state of becoming one." - JUAN CALDERON
Juan is an internationally regarded instructor and performer, recently being awarded his fourth Lifetime Achievement Award from the largest Latin events in the USA, including the LA, NY and Chicago Salsa Congresses.
