Steve & Diane Neely

Steve and Diane Neely  (706 564 5847) In the late 1990’s, while working in Puerto Rico, Steve encountered Salsa.  Diane had wanted him to start dancing for years, but when he saw Salsa he got interested (“I don’t know what that is but if I’m going to dance—I want to do that”).  Back on the mainland, Steve and Diane became regulars in the local Salsa scene.  They began their interest in Argentine Tango a few years later at a local Ballroom Studio.  Click Here
