About omar G.

Omar Guttie has made his mark in the Los Angeles salsa community. Dancer, to choreographer, to fashion designer, Omar is the ultimate triple threat.
Omar began his education and this is where he found his love affair for the fine arts. He attended high school, where he immersed himself in singing to get over his shyness. Years later in college, where he studied fashion design, he was drawn to another artistic direction of Latin dance. As he took his first salsa class in 2003, Omar’s inevitable talent and amazing dance career was born. He became known in the salsa community as an equally strong leader and follower. To diversify and elevate his dancing abilities, Omar refined his skills by taking different genres of dance such as Salsa, Cha Cha, Ballet and Hip Hop classes. “In order to be a great dance teacher, you have to know other styles of dance.” This approach set Omar apart from his peers.
As he mastered his craft in salsa he realized something was missing from the LA salsa scene. Although he taught on-one he began studying east coast salsa on-two and infused the styles. He uses New York mambo influence, which encompasses musicality and feeling of songs, and merges it with west coast on-one technique. He refers to this as “new school salsa”.
