Tamara Valle – France


Born in France, Tamara began her dance training at the age of 3 in classical ballet. During her early childhood and adolescence she pursued and competed in gymnastics and acrobatics. Tamara further developed and expanded her dance training by enrolling in the Troyes Conservatory which specialized in Modern, Jazz and Classical Ballet. There she obtained professional and more structured training and formal education in the history of dance, music and anatomy of the body. Upon completion, Tamara received recognition for having the highest GPA in her class in modern dance. Tamara then decided to broaden her horizons and went to the best and most recognized schools in Paris where she took classes in Hip Hop and Contemporary as well as Jazz and Classical.

With her experience and training throughout the years in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, Hip Hop and Gymnastics Tamara developed her own style which she calls “Abstract”. Her versatility has opened many doors for her. She was the principal dancer the clip Vegas: Dirty Shake, as well as a dancer in the famous company “Theatre du voile dechiré” where she traveled all over France performing their famous piece “Boomerang”.

In April of 2012 was when Tamara was first introduced to Latin music, initially Bachata and more recently salsa and has been a passion ever since. Because of her sultry and versatile dance style Tamara has been invited to different events in France, USA and Europe, to perform and teach her abstract style of dance. Tamara currently teaches her very popular Street Jazz which is a combination of Hip hop and Modern Jazz which focuses on Body isolation and musicality.

Our Story

It started as an idea between friends, bringing a congress to Texas where at the time Texas had no active congress in the entire state. A congress that would showcase Texas Salsa talent, bring awareness of salsa to the community and raise money for scholarships. Together David Melendez and Ruby Rivera worked hard and in January 2004, the Texas Salsa Congress was born.
