About Senora Dominguez: I am originally from Venezuela and came to USA in 1996 and recently got my citizenship. I’m married to Gustavo Escalante who is one of my biggest support and best friends. We have two wonderful boys: Luis who is 14 and Diego who is 7 years old. They are my biggest prize and I cherish them to the fullest. Two of my biggest passions are teaching and dancing and I feel very fortunate to be able to have both as a job. I feel so grateful and blessed to be part to the STA family.
