I am the owner and founder of Salsa Express. I've been inspired by SALSA for more than 13 years being able to create my own studio and run it for the last for 7 years. I have taught salsa in France and the USA and I have realized along the way that teaching salsa moves me beyond measure, and it's great to be able to export one of our national symbols. Its all about personal touch and commitment to excellency. Nowadays I instruct my teachers on how to teach, making sure they will leave you with a unique and everlasting souvenir.

I have some experience dancing and it was great to be able to have a private teacher that taught me on my level instead of having to learn beginners movements because of other students and so on. I had an amazing class, got really good tips to improve my dancing.

I am not a dancer but Ariel and Diana were amazing instructors and they were very patient with us. It was my first time dancing and even though I was nervous I had so much fun

Unfortunately, I regretted for booking the experience with Damian during our trip in Havana. First and foremost, we didn’t have the experience at the rooftop studio (as described on the Airbnb page), we had the class in a closed room with no window or AC. As you can imagine being in a room with no window or AC in Cuba, and doing salsa, the heat can make the experience unbearable. We ended our class earlier because both my husband and I were just too hot to continue dancing. Since the class was not at the rooftop bar, there was definitely not drinks to purchase. We each got a bottle water that is warm, so it was just very hot. Damian is not available today, so my husband and I had different instructors. My instructor picked us up from our Airbnb and he is a nice guy. He is a great dancer and tried his best to teach Salsa with me, I would recommend him to others. However, on the other hand, my husband’s experience isn’t very pleasant. He has no prior experiences in dancing, so it was hard for him to get everything at the first time. His instructor was very inpatient with him and was annoyed at him for taking the wrong step. The entire experience was stressful to him and I felt really bad that I made him go through it because I thought it’d be a fun activity for us to do in Cuba. Therefore, I would not recommend this to anyone who has no dance experience before (if with the same instructor) as she can be hard for first time learner. Also, I would not recommend the experience if it’s at the same location as we had today. I don’t know how the experience would be if it is on the rooftop since it was not the case for us.
