Terry and Cecile live in Paris, France, but they are native of the Antille Islands (Terry from Guadeloupe, and Cécile from Martinique).

Although they arrived to the dance world in completely different manners, Terry and Cécile suspected, from their first dances together, that their differences were, in reality, complimentary. Their alliance allows Terry to channel his speed, and Cécile to make her sensuality more dynamic.

As a result of their experiences within large Paris dance troops, they decided, in August 2007, to start their own school and company in which they could show that salsa does not limit itself to a style, but it is a mixture.

Afterwards, they decided that each of their shows will completely differ from the preceding one. Casino, mambo on1, on2, chachacha, bachata, merengue, or zouk... we never know beforehand which will be the style of their next choreography.

Born in Paris France, Terry was raised in Guadeloupe. As a boy he first expressed his passion for dance, showing talent in many dance styles – from Hip Hop to Creole dance and beyond. It was however not for long until Terry, 19 at that time, discovered his love for Salsa. Impassioned by the dance, he was unstoppable in his practice and became Salsa champion of Guadeloupe at the age of 23. After this young success, he was invited to teach at Isis Figaro, one of the most prestigious dance schools in Paris. At this school Terry met Cecile and they began to train together and joined U Tribe, an internationally very recognized dance crew. Their incredible show won the hearts of many viewers. After such a great success, Terry and Cecile opened their own school Salsalianza in Paris in August, 2007.
