Vassili

Vassili grew up in Greece, on the small Island of Paros,

where he learned music. Starting as a teen, he has been

a performer for over 20 years. He moved to LA at the age

of 18, where he experimented with acting, appeared in such

movies as "Hook" and "Falling Down" and numerous spots

in the TV series "The Wonder Years," to name just a

few. He founded the world music ensemble"Children of the

Revolution" in 1999 upon moving to Seattle. The band's

unique blend of Spanish guitar, Latin rhythms, and

multilingual songs soon gained them incredible popularity. 

They went on to perform all over the world, including

recording a duet with Ann Wilson of Heart. Being a lead singer

and guitar player honed his stage skills, dance was a

natural progression for him. Vassili took his first Salsa

lesson in 2000 and has not stopped dancing since. He won the

"Reno Dance Sensation" Salsa competition two years in a row, and has

performed and taught at numerous dance events around the US. Vassili's

passion lies not only in the art of Salsa but in challenging himself to provide the

most dynamic instruction to his students. He actively studies from dancers of various

styles. He has traveled to Colombia and Cuba to study Salsa and Afro-Cuban

Rumba from the real pro's and looks forward to delving deeper into Salsa's roots around the world.

Currently the Artistic Director of Seattle's enormously popular dance school "Salsa Con Todo,"

Vassili continues to perform, teach, and enjoy life.
