Dance Life


Home Link Link

At the beginning of my life, I wasn’t much of a dancing person. My first approach to dancing was when I was already 19, and I tried a Cumbia class for one semester at me home university. Later on, some parties and events where the casual Salsa was tough to me by friends and family. Those styles, despite been fun! Were not enough for me, I needed something different but never tryed to search for it. Nothing became real until the year of 2010 when I decided to try Argentinian Tango. A lot of people have asked me why this as my first formal dance, and my answer is always the same: “I don’t know”. Not much of an answer to be honest, and yet, is the truth! I started learning the art of Tango around July 2010. My first and original tango teacher was (and still is!) Keren Sisay, and her mom Esther Soler. In 2012, Keren and I created the CUrITa (Compania Urbana Itinerante de Tango) Group in Mexico, which I brought to England in 2013. Now is established as the CUrITa Student Society at the University of Sheffield. In 2014 I got introduced and seduced by the Kizomba style. My first teacher was (and again, somehow still is) Antonio Filipe. Since then I have been exploring other styles, like Bachata (with Sol and Laura), Brazilian Zouk (with Jenny Cousins) and Reggaeton (with Rachel Plumb). I’m the current teacher of Argentinian Tango and Kizomba in the CUrITa Society. We also teach Bachata, Reggaeton, Salsa and Brazilian Zouk to students and everyone else who is interested.
