Andrea Paez

Andrea is a co-Director with Raquel in Salsabor. Like the rest of the Paez family she grew up with Latin music and dancing. Except that she and Raquel, who were born in Ecuador, literally grew up surrounded by the Latino sounds of Salsa, Folkloric, Cha Cha, and Cumbia, to name a few. Like most South Americans she started dancing the minute she could walk.

While living in Europe for a year she decided to attend a Salsa class and it was then that she discovered that Latin dancing took more than moving her hips. She took up classes with Salsabor in 2005 and the rest is history.

She graduated at the University of Canberra with a Bachelor Degree in Tourism Management, majoring in Spanish and Marketing. After finishing her university degree she worked at the Canberra Convention Bureau and then as a creative event manager and website manager for a top Government website.

Now as a Director in Salsabor, Andrea oversees the running, development and promotion of the company with her sister Raquel. She lives in Sydney with her husband and travels to Canberra regularly to connect and to be close to her Salsabor familia.
