Overview

I have a passion for dance since my childhood in Holguín, Cuba. Since then, I have worked in various dance styles from ballet to modern to the world of Cuban popular dances. My dynamism, energy and stage presence allowed me to shine on the stages of San Francisco, Miami and Mexico while pursuing my career in Canada. Accompanied by members of the dance troupe Dos con Dos, I have performed original and colorful pieces in Quebec to promote reggaeton and Cuban dances. I,m a dancer, teacher, choreographer and artistic director who like transmit perfectly deep passion for Caribbean music through various styles, starting with the Latin rhythm of Cuban Son through the rumba and the most recent musical movements of reggeaton, salsa and timba.
For more than seven years the artistic director of a Cuban dance school which is the most important and recognized school in the Quebec City area Canda. With my passion i hoisted my dance company to first place in the International Championship of Rueda de Casino in Miami in 2009

Yami is a great dance instructor. She is very experienced with Cuban salsa, merengue and other Latin dances and she is very patient in teaching you how to listen to the music and move with the 'ritmo". I have had 10 classes with her so far and I feel that I have been dancing salsa (almost) all my life. I highly recommend her!
