Douglas & Dawn
Dawn and Douglas
Asia Salsa Champions 2014 & 2015 (Professional Division)
Dawn and Douglas are, quite literally, a head above the rest. An abnormally tall couple from Singapore, they began dancing together in October 2010 and have since performed, competed and taught all around the world, in countries such as France, Croatia, Switzerland, South Africa, the USA, Japan and Korea, to name a few.
They began competing professionally in 2013 and have since become 2-time Asian Salsa Champions, winning regional championships such as the Asia Open Salsa Championship in Bangalore and Asia Latin Championship in Singapore consecutively in 2014 and 2015. They have also competed professionally at world-level competitions such as the Hong Kong World Salsa Championships and the World DanceSport Games in Taiwan, consistently finishing within the Top 6 for each.
Douglas began dancing under Lionel Araya, ex-champion of the International Street Dance Competition in Los Angeles. A few years on, he trained with the Adrian y Anita Salsa Company in Barcelona for four months, during which he became inspired by the 5-time Salsa World Champions to take his passion for Salsa to greater heights.
Today, Douglas juggles his full-time job while continuing to live his dream with Dawn, who started dancing in her late teens under the tutelage of Starlinn Choo and currently works as a freelance writer in Singapore.
This couple hopes that audiences will one day remember them for their unique, energetic choreographies rather than just their above average height.
