Salsa film has made me want to teach everybody

A DANCE teacher from Shiplake wants to increase the popularity of salsa after featuring in a film about it.

Jennifer Benavidez, 39, plays a backing dancer in Cuban Fury, a romantic comedy starring Nick Frost.

She hopes the film will spark more interest in the Latin dance movement and aims to lead the way by teaching beginners.

Mrs Benavidez, a Mexican-American who is originally from Texas, said: “Once you see this movie you will just want to dance.

“There’s actually a salsa community everywhere in the UK. A lot of people go on holiday to somewhere like Cuba or the Caribbean and they experience dancing and want to continue it.
