Recommended Local Salsa Schools in Glasgow-
Our instructors still attend some of these schools. They offer a lot of fantastic classes from world-class teachers:
Descarga Dance– Lead Instructor- Yainer Carbonell. In 2011/12, Salsa4Water has welcomed performances from The Descarga Dance Company at the opening of the Salsa4Water club night, and the involvement of Artistic Director Yainer Carbonell in leading afro-cuban and popular dance workshops. The Descarga Dance Company is the UK’s only contemporary dance company actively representing African-Caribbean dance arts. Descarga teach Salsa, Rumba, Son, Reggaeton, Afro-cuban and many classes not provided by any other salsa school in Glasgow. These classes will give you a depth into the origin of Cuban Salsa that will change you from good or even very good, to Incredble. I go to these classes weekly and the teacher is a Cuban Pro who has worked for Lady salsa, TV Ballet, Conjuncto Folklorico and more- the most famous Cuban salsa companies in the world. This guys is world class and I strongly reccomend these classes!
Tumbao salsa– Lead instructor- Farah Portela. Winners of Tropica Rueda Championship, Niece of one of the Benny Moré dancers and the original founder of Cuban salsa in Glasgow. These classes are incredible for becoming a rueda pro and they teach some advanced moves. Farah teaches at pretty much every International Cuban Salsa Congress and has a beutiful style. Very experienced teachers, and also put on 2 salsa nights every week (boteco and Arta). Sean attended these classes for a long time and this school has produced some of Glasgow’s best dancers (including many of the best teachers!). Highly reccomended!
Academia de Salsa – Lead Instructor- Shannon. Academia is one of the most successful schools in glasgow and has produced some incredible dancers. Very organised and a great range of teachers. Academia do plenty of classes for students of all levels, from absolute beginner to advanced and run club nights 3 nights per week. Their classes are arguably the most popular in Glasgow, with a very high student satisfaction rate. We did a show at an event organised by Academia de salsa at their Christmas party in 2011. We strongly recommend this school!
