Senior Lecturer Salsiando​

Rafael Sassy Rodriquez

Rafael’s passion for salsa runs deep, as he has been dancing since he was a young boy. He honed his skills and graduated from the prestigious Conservatorio Nacional de Danza y Arte in Cuba, located in the vibrant city of Havana. His background and experience are truly exceptional, as there are very few salsa teachers in the Netherlands with such a rich and diverse background.

About salsiando

There are a number of schools in the Netherlands where lessons are given in the Cuban style. If you’re from another school, but have no idea what style they taught, you can almost be sure it’s L.A. style.
