Margo Downing-Faircloth

Margo Faircloth has been dancing on and off all her life, starting with the Sydney King Studio in Camden New Jersey in ballet, and later with the Arthur Hall Dance Studio in Philadelphia, where she fell in love with various forms of African Dance. After a respite from dance in order to raise her family, she rekindled her life-long passion for dancing in learning social dances with her husband. But it was Salsa that stole her heart. Margo has taken classes with Jim and Leah Bunting from the Rittenhouse Dance Academy in Philadelphia, Sonya Elmore from the La Luna Dance Studio in Bensalem, Pa., with Barbara Capoldi from the Atrium Dance Studio in Pennsauken, NJ, and with Juan Calderon from Cultural Explosion, an international dance company based in NJ. Since Margo and her husband started dancing salsa in their more seasoned years, their efforts were never to dance competitively, but rather to simply enjoy the art and creativity of dance. Margo loves the fusing of ballroom technique with the natural and cultural evolution of Latin dance styling. Her aim is to share what she has come to love with all who want to learn.
