Jeff Link has lived in many cities around the country, but grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, returned in 2014; and has been dancing since 2007.
His first contact with Latin dancing was through a Dominican friend who taught him Bachata and Merengue. A year passed and while on a work project in 2008, he ran into Duane Wrenn of Energentic Soul in Detroit, MI and that's when his passion for Cuban Salsa began. Duane later introduced him to Julian Mejia and since then, he has danced and lived in Atlanta, Ga (Salsatlanta); Austin, Tx (Move Dance Company) and now resides here in Cincinnati. Jeff teaches Cuban dancing full time in the Cincinnati and Northern KY areas. His company, Bembe' is the largest Salsa school in the area and he hosts weekly parties to celebrate all of the Latin dances.
"Very few things make you forget about anything else that is going on in your life while doing it, and dancing is one of them. I love that feeling of a dance when everyone else disappears and it's just you two on the floor. That's when I am most happy"
You can find Jeff out dancing almost every night. If you see him, say hello!
