Greg "The Salsaman" Henry AKA Hawai'i Salsa Ambassador began dancing professionally at age 3 in
Seville, Espana. At age 6 he moved to San Hose California where his mother a Flamengo Performer had a
dance troupe. They performed for several years till his mother learned English after that they performed at
private functions until Greg was 18 years old. Greg went to college then nursing school and joined the
army in order to follow a life long dream to move to Hawaii. Once in Hawaii in 1988 Greg danced monern
techno. He moved back to the mainland for ten years and studied Salsa and Latin dances in San Francisco
and Sam Diego. Returning to Hawaii to live out the rest of his life he discovereda true need for a full time
professional Latin Dance instructor. (thanks to the persuasion of his students)
Greg started the Hot Salsa Dance Company aptly named because of an article in the Honolulu Advertiser
that proclaimed "Now there is real Hot Salsa". So he regestered the name, got a client base and worked
everyday since to share the spirit of Latin dance with all in Hawaii and those who come to visit.
