Jaime is originally from Uruguay, South America and came to Australia in 1985. His first career was playing first grade soccer in Uruguay, until he realized that soccer was not exactly what he was after.

"I am South American; I have been dancing Salsa all my life!" It was a natural progression to immerse himself in dance, and his cultural heritage gives him a vast dance experience to draw from including salsa, lambada/zouk, cha cha, Bachata, Rueda and merengue.

Jaime is one of the Directors of Latin Dance Australia in Sydney along with Marcia Pinheiro, which now has around 800 students each week.

Jaime Jesus has earned the reputation as being Australias number 1 Salsa ambassador to the world. In his Salsa career so far, Jaime has had the pleasure of teaching and helping start the careers of many well known instructors and performers in Sydney.
