Eric Nava





Dance instructor Eric Nava currently offers adult group classes in beginner salsa and Diva (ladies styling). He can also offer Bachata and Ballroom dance instruction via private lessons for general learning and wedding dance lessons.


Eric has been working professionally in the dance industry since 2012. However, he has been dancing since his mom taught him his first steps at the age of...well, zero! That's right, Eric has been dancing since the womb.

Dance instructor Eric is one of our most diversely trained instructors. He is proficient in the Latin dances, American Ballroom, West Coast Swing, Hustle, and all of the Country Dances. He currently competes professionally in Country Ballroom and also has many professional credits in the Afro Latin dance industry. Those credits include placement on the professional division of the mambo team, Urban Vibe, and Bachata Legacy. He also has professional musical theatre performance credits which most recently include "In the Heights" produced by The Miracle Center.


Eric's life long passion for dance makes him a fun, enthusiastic dance teacher. He is always excited to teach and inspire students of all ages and levels. Learning to dance can be intimidating and sometimes even vulnerable.  Because of that, dance instructor Eric Nava does his best to make dance easy for his students. His humorous teaching style and charming personality immediately melts down walls, helping you to relax and enjoy the learning process.

Another great thing about Eric is that he is a committed learner for life! He actively seeks out training in all styles of dance which keeps his teaching up-to-date and at the utmost quality. Whether it's performance quality or social dance skills, Eric can help you live your best dance life.


"Amazing first class of open level diva with Eric! Such a fun class! Great instructor! Took his time to explain all the moves to us new timers."
