I’ve been teaching cuban salsa for over seven years. I love what I do, and I get huge satisfaction of seeing my students improve and gain in confidence with every class. My personal mission for Afrodesia Salsa is quite simple:  To teach as many people one of the most sensual and feel-good dances on the planet.
