Born and raised in Taipei, Mandy Wang has shown dance talent since childhood and was crazy about all kinds of dance events during college. She got hooked on salsa in 2005 and has dedicated much of her life since then to salsa and Afro Cuban dance. Since 2008 she has trained under Korean salsa master Sol intense professional pedagogy, eventually becoming the principle dancer of Dancing Island, the top salsa dance company based in Taiwan.

In addition to the wide variety of dance styles taught by Sol, including latin, samba, ballet, jazz, comtemporary, Argentine tango and Afro rumba, she also has continually grown and learned other dances such as zouk, kizomba, reggaeton, dancehall, voguing, and jazz funk. In 2016, she traveled to Cuba to learn folkloric dances such as Afro rumba, trained in Tijuana, Mexico under Sergio Jasso, previous head director of Alma Latina, and furthered her salsa training with salsa masters in New York including Franklin Diaz and Griselle Ponce. In early 2017 she partnered with Calvin Wang to open Taiwan Latin Dance Academy to share her love and passion for dance.

Mandy believes in continual education and training, seeking inspiration to create her own choreography and teaching with her unique style. Her wide range of dance experience makes her a unique dancer who can mix sensual and sexy with funk and ghetto style, and her musicality and smooth body movement make her stand out as one of the most attractive dancers on the dance floor. She has performed in many domestic and overseas dance events.
