Manu Goncalves

Manu is originally from Senegal (West Africa) where he grew up with his family who are originally from Cape Verde. Manu has been dancing and performing his entire life. He started dancing early on learning to dance in various diverse styles! FUNANA - Funana is a Dance and music genre, the funaná is characterized by having a variable tempo, from vivace to andante, and a 2-beat rhythm. The funaná is intimately associated to the accordion, more precisely to the diatonic accordion, commonly known as gaita in Cape Verde. ZOUK DANCE -Zouk is a musical and dance style originating from the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. The word zouk has, over time, come to mean "party" or "festival" in the local Antillean Creole of French. PASSADA & CABOLOVE from Cape-Verde. It was from these dance styles that Manu fell in love with dancing and continued to learn and grow as a young dancer as much as possible. In 2004 Manu co-founded one of the first salsa schools in Dakar/Senegal. SALSA DAKAR was successful for many years with specialized teaching in Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Kizomba, & Funana. Once the school was established and set up on a full-time basis Manu was ready for the next challenge. It was in 2012 that Manu was offered a place at a long established Latin and ballroom school as a teacher and student so that he could continue to learn the American smooth and American rhythm dance styles. Whilst continuing his training Manu performed in numerous live performances and competed in many competitions throughout the US, Mexico and Hawaii. He has created, choreographed and performed award-winning routines : Dancing for Diabetes, Showcase by the Sea.. Manu also loves the Fitness World and for that he has created and developed the Salsa Cardio. An amazing way to combine dance & fitness, all to the sounds of intoxicating latin music. Salsa Cardio is a great & fun way to learn how to dance Salsa. Since then Manu has continuously strived to improve himself as a teacher and dancer . He is looking forward to growing with Dance With Me USA and share his passion with all dance lovers.

Kristina Hendrickson

Kristina’s dance journey began later than most- having never stepped foot on the dance floor until college as a Theater major (except of course, busting moves in the kitchen). She immediately fell in love with the community and the power of expression through music. Kristina spent her formative dance years building her local dance community by teaching and organizing social dance outings. After 4 years, she decided to leave her day job as an admin and pursue her passion for dance full time- 5 years later she has never looked back. Kristina is also proof that a person can find love on the dance floor, as she met her now husband at a dance social! She and her husband resided in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest before making the big move to Texas. They are loving Houston’s wonderfully big hearted community and always on the hunt for the best food Houston has to offer. Kristina can’t wait to dance with all of you!
