Lesson Details

Salsa Dancing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Why did I choose to be a dance teacher?
Simple: Have you ever seen a person who is sad while dancing? ... Me neither!
DANCING MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY!
I enjoy dancing, but what I really enjoy doing most in my life is teaching!
I have 16 years of experience specializing in salsa and Latin rhythms.
Something I have learned over the years is that a good dance instructor is one who can understand the learning and emotional processes of each student and adapt effectively and quickly, since the way of learning of each student is unique and special depending on the background of experience they have.
That's why I like the one-to-one approach where I can adapt in each lesson to the unique needs of my apprentice and take him as a mentor to really enjoy the process without being competing or comparing with anyone but yourself.
If you are looking for an online course with proper structure and progression, with real menthoring and an easy to remember sistem that you can apply right away in the dance floor, do not hesitate to contact me, I can help you!

I am a teacher and a professional salsa dancer with 15 years experience background. I was born in Argentina, so I know the Latin culture from the inside, not only because of my roots, but also because I have dedicated a great part of my life traveling to countries like Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Cuba and Puerto Rico (I love to travel as you can see ) getting to know very thoroughly the culture of Latin dance and its unique and charming grace.

I am a graduate of Escuela Superior de Danzas Soria Arch with honors as a teacher of traditional Afro-Antillean dances (Latin Rhythms). With regard to the artistic, I have extensive experience giving shows in scenarios of all kinds. Private parties, salsa congresses, music videos, concerts, mass events, movies, TV shows, advertisements, etc. I'm not currently giving shows but helping others to do it, and mainly to those who want to navigate the exciting world of improvised dance (social dance).

I am passionate about teaching dance lessons to people of all ages and levels. I have taught hundreds of satisfied customers from different parts of the world. When it comes to beginners, I like to take them step by step at their own pace, with easy-to-understand explanations and methods that help to remember, in order to make the learning process enjoyable and be able to apply early on the dance floor all the learned material. The goal is to fall in love with dancing!

When it comes to students who have previous experience (intermediate and advanced), my mission is to become a guide and mentor for them. Since in these stages is where they need a push to get out of the level where they are stuck and do not know why, or maybe they get to the point where they can learn all the material from their teachers but fail to improve their own style.

No matter what level you are in, if you are my student, it represents for me a unique and different challenge that leads me to commit myself until you reach your goals. Most of the classes I teach are online, but if you live near my area, I can visit you personally at home for a private session with great pleasure. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a great salsa dancer!
