Rumbao’s Jennifer Geyer Wins South East Salsa Open

photo-6 Rumbao Latin Dance Company is so proud of their own Jennifer Geyer and partner Eduardo Diaz for winning first place at the 2015 South East Salsa Open!

These champions have worked extremely hard to prepare for this moment. With Jennifer living in Charlotte and Eduardo in Augusta, the couple met and trained as much as possible. Saturday June 27th,  Jennifer and Eduardo had the crowd going crazy with their unmatched creativity, energy, flips, tricks, and elegance. They collaborated in choreography and pushed each other to reach their full potential.

The couple will go on to compete in Puerto Rico this July. Stay tuned for an update on their performance as they represent the south east!
