What you'll do

After meeting in our studio in the center of Trinidad we will start the class with a Salsa warm up to relax our bodies and get to know the basic movements of our shoulders and hips for the upcoming dance course. I will teach you the rhythm of Salsa and Rumba and with the help of some typical Cuban instruments you will learn to feel and understand the music of Salsa and Rumba. Depending on your level I will teach you the basic steps with your first turns. If you already dance you will get to know some beautiful figures and little choreographies and we will work on your style and Cuban flavor.
After one hour we will make a little break where we will offer you a cold water or soft drink. After the class we are happy to answer your questions about the Cuban dance culture and we will help you to find the right place to practice what you have learned with us in Trinidad.
Other things to note
We can adjust the class to your abilities so don’t worry if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced dancer we are able to fulfill your needs.

My name is Andy and I am the owner and founder of Barrio Cubano Escuela de Baile. I'm a passionate and experienced dancer, teacher and choreographer for all Cuban dances. I have studied dance, worked as a dancer in a professional company as well as the local Rumba project for some time. But I was always aiming for my own style and perspective. I'm teaching since several years and if I'm not teaching I create my own choreographies in our dance studio in the heart of Trinidad. I can teach in Spanish and English and I have worked with clients from all over the world. I love dancing and would like to share this beautiful Cuban culture with you.

Belle découverte de la salsa avec Andy et les « autres professeurs ». Ils se sont montrés patients, rassurants et se sont adaptés à notre niveau (égal à 0) pour nous enseigner les bases de la salsa. Nous avons passé un très bon moment et nous sommes contentes d’avoir découvert la salsa à cuba en leur compagnie. Merci à vous !!

We really enjoyed dancing here. They moved at a good speed and didn't move forward with the skills until we were able to get each move down, and we really appreciate that. There were two instructors which was really helpful so we were always dancing instead of taking turns. We'd recommend this for anyone who want to learn Cuban Salsa.

Ich hatte eine tolle privat-Tanzstunde bei Andy. Er hat verschiedene Stile kombiniert und ich habe viel Neues dazugelernt. Andy ist sehr professionell und gut ausgebildet und es hat mir sehr viel Spaß gemacht! Jederzeit wieder!

Nice teacher and co-teacher. Very friendly and the program seemed well practiced. Personally I didn’t learn that much as I had a lot of trouble “getting” especially one specific step. I felt very akward and embarrassed about that since it said on the description that the class is for everyone older than 6 years old. And I’m 34 myself :-D So personally for me it was a bit of an expensive hour and a half as this is one of the more expensive classes in the market. I do feel though that both teachers were patient with me and they tried again and again to show me the moves :-) I guess when you get stuck somewhere in the middle of the basic steps it’s just hard to get going from there on. My boyfriend’s experience was much better. He also has the advantage of a background as a dancer himself. Thank you both Andy and the Miss teacher (sorry forgot your name).

Andy was fun and very good at teaching. His English was very good. He made us all very comfortable and worked at the pace we required based on our skill level. He had good energy and brought the best out in us. We were two couples at different levels but the class was good for both couples and was a fun activity we were able to do together. Highly recommend!

Andy is a professional teacher and his friends are also excellent. He prepared our class with 3 teacher(we are 7 women), that was much better us. We had a fun and good time to enjoy salsa dance. Some of us tried his class again tomorrow. Thank you Andy :)
