Attila and Bea have been teaching salsa together for almost 15 years. They are both fond of Cuban styles: Salsa Cubana, Timba, Son, Cha-Cha-Cha and they share devotion for Afro-Cuban rumba and Orisha dances. Teaching aside, they have created choreographies and show performances. Salsa is far more than work for them: it’s a passion, it’s love and it is a way of life. Their classes are dynamic, funny and interactive. They put emphasis on technique; they focus on leading and following, partner work and musicality.
