Cambridge Cuban Salsa Club
Musical taste - DJ Sacha's live mixes gather energetic tracks that truly transmit salsa's positive energy to the audience, and form a balanced mix of ageless favourites and bleeding edge hits which sustain the audience's dancing energy until the end of the night. Such a sure taste for music comes from a musical education which started in France at an early age with piano, clarinet, saxophone and singing, all completed, when joining university in Paris, with an urge to roam the capital's live concerts and second hand CD shops. Sacha's passion to discover all forms of musical cultures and their connection to people's lives was further deepened when travelling around the world in 2002 and 2003. A sudden encounter with a Manolito tune in 2004 marked the start of his passion for Cuban salsa: the sheer energy, musical completeness and fascinating traditions of Timba took the pole position of his eclectic musical taste.
Dance teaching and entertainment - Sacha's ability to lead energetic Ruedas (circle dances) and fun line ups guarantees that everyone gets a chance to dance and to love the party. After moving to the UK in 2007, Sacha developed his dance teaching skills through collaborations with various internationally known Cuban salsa teachers, amongst which multi-award superstar Kerry Ribchester. Sacha has since acquired a long teaching experience in the framework of local group classes, private one-to-one classes, primary schools (CRB checked), corporate parties and hen/stag nights, and has a track record of helping people of all abilities to become confident on the dancefloor. His recent selection by the Cambridge City Council to participate into the "Get back into dance 2012" programme proves his reliability.
Salsa promotions - Sacha's efforts in organizing and promoting Cuban salsa events have revived, developed and grown the Cuban salsa scene in the region of Cambridge, and he is now helping with a number of other Cuban salsa projects in East Anglia and the UK. More information is available through his Cuban salsa information website: www.CambridgeCubanSalsa.co.uk.
DJ Sacha is available on demand for salsa services including DJing, dance classes including Cuban salsa, Bachata and Merengue styles, hen parties and wedding animations, musical workshops, salsa demos and artist bookings. Please use this contact form to get more information.
