Phillip Langlais and Natalie Watterson A dance, a passion
Before we begin to question, UK-based salsa instructor Phillip Langlais gets straight to the point, “Salsa is passion; for me it is life.” Langlais holds a Guinness world record of 130 spins in a minute with his co-dance-cum-instructor Natalie Watterson. “Salsa comes naturally to me and I have been pursuing it for over twenty-one years now,” he laughs while adding, “I never really was formally trained; it was a friend of mine who introduced me to Salsa and since then there was no stopping.
