Sky Blue is the founding director of the Byron Latin Fiesta, an event she created in 2006. She is also one of the directors behind the Sydney International Bachata Festival, the Sydney Cuban Salsa Congress and her newest creation, which is the Melbourne Kizomba Festival. Sky has an immense passion for running Latin dance events and in dance itself.
After a childhood of learning to dance, and an early adulthood of studying design and small business management, together with intensive travel to study the dance styles and cultures which captivated her heart, Sky went on to found the Sydney based Picante Latin Dance in 1999. Picante was a successful dance school for close to 15 years hosting weekly classes and regular performances and events. Picante is now evolving to become the new Picante Productions, an event agency that focuses on producing top quality Latin, Afro-Latin and Caribbean dance events as well as touring International Artists.
With the recent formation of Picante Productions not only will Sky continue to host and run popular Latin dance events throughout Australia, but she is also determined to continue on her teaching journey. Sky has a real natural talent for teaching, coupled with years of experience and she delights in seeing people grow to become dancers.
Currently, Sky is at the forefront of promoting the Kizomba dance movement in Australia but she also still loves to work with Bachata, Cuban Salsa and other Latin styles.
