Born and raised in Orange County, Chanelle has always admired all types of dance but never ventured into trying it. She began taking salsa and bachata lessons at OC Salsa a year ago and immediately fell in love with the music, culture and friendly, welcoming members of the OC Salsa Family. Determined to learn as much as possible, she began taking a series of private lessons with Esteban and taking every opportunity to social dance. She has performed in many occasions and she is well known in the Orange County Salsa Scene for her talent and friendly personality. Chanelle now assists and instructs beginners at OC salsa.
