Sergio Racig

Sergio Racig joined our Ballroom Dance group in 2008, when he came from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Martha's Vineyard. Here, he met his now wife, Esther Deming, and taught her the Los Angeles style Salsa which is danced in his home country. She quickly mastered the steps and style, and they have been dancing together ever since.  Back in 2009, when Le Grenier Restaurant still had its dance floor, the two of them gave weekly Salsa demonstrations and lessons. They danced together in Bulit on Stilts productions: Ballroom Dance MV shows in 2009 and 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014, and Saskia's Salsa show in 2009.  Sergio and Esther choreographed and danced a salsa piece in The Belly Dance & Revue at Catherine Cornell Theatre in April 2010.  The now married couple enjoy dancing together and are out dancing at least twice a week, often stealing the show. In 2014 he put on a dance performance with Sharon Strimmling for the disabled at the Anchor in Edgartown. Sergio gives private and group Salsa lessons at their home in Oak Bluffs.
