It is both a privilege and a pleasure to be welcoming Cuban master LUANDA PAU BAQUERO in Cambridge for a series of three workshops, one per month in September/October/November 2018!

luanda_smile2.jpgBeing the daughter of Domingo Pau, the lead dancer of the Ballet Folklorico Nacional de Cuba (National Folkloric Ballet of Cuba), Luanda started her formal dance training and career from the age of 8 years old. Following with the dance cursus at Havana's National School of Arts, known from producing some of the best dancers and musicians in the world through very strict training, she learned classical and contemporary dancing as much as developing a deep knowledge of Afro-Cuban dance techniques. Later on, she got selected to join the Conjunto Folklorico Nacional de Cuba, one of the nation's only companies allowed to tour internationally to represent Cuban dancing around the world, where she reached the highest rank of soloist dancer. After living and teaching in France for a few years, she has set camp in the UK since 2017, from where she keeps touring and teaching at many Cuban festivals internationally. Throughout her fantastic career, passion for Cuban culture, a sense of love for dancing and being born with Cuban movement have remained the source of her motivation to teach and the energy behind her infectious smile.

So with Luanda Pau, what you get access to is a trained professional Cuban dancer with years worth of technical knowledge, dancing and teaching experience, trained in Havana to the highest Cuban standards, used to teach non-Cubans around the world, and a fantastically positive and inspirational person with the greatest smile on earth.

But perhaps the best way of introducing Luanda Pau is to let the master speak about her outstanding career and infectious passion for dancing:


Her series of 3 workshops will focus on Cuban movement techniques, to develop the true Cuban flavour into your salsa dancing. These techniques will be trained through Afro-Cuban exercises, but the workshops are open and tailored to students requests: this is your chance to ask from a highly professional yet highly approachable Cuban teacher. Perhaps a chance not to be missed! :-)
