Janet Harris – LGS Founder/Promoter, Salsa & Bachata Teacher

Janet – LGS Founder & Teacher.

I absolutely love SALSA!. I have been dancing Salsa for years. A colleague took me to a lunch time salsa class with Robert Charlemagne, a Top UK Salsa Teacher. I was hooked after my first class. I have always loved to dance, I am one of those people you can’t get off the dance floor! I have had experience of Latin American dancing and Contemporary Dance, but the salsa Robert introduced me to ,was something else! I started going to clubs and salsa weekenders. I was addicted to the music, the people and the atmosphere and I still am. I went on to take my UKA club style exams, UKA Teacher Training courses, BTEC Level 1 and BTEC level 2 Qualified Salsa Teacher exams. I assisted in lessons where and when I could. Other than Salsa my other passion is Dominican Bachata.

My aim for Let’s Go Salsa is to get people dancing and to have plenty of fun when doing so.

 

Steevo Teacher/DJ, When I first discovered the Salsa scene in 1999 I was totally bowled over. Here is a scene where people, irrespective of age, skin colour or culture, come together under one roof for one main purpose; to dance and have a great time. My first experience of a Salsa club was La Finca in The Angel, Central London. For 6 weeks I just stood there and watched in amazement. My first salsa tuition was with a Cuban named Brando Acosta @ the Loughborough Hotel in Brixton (now converted into flats). He is no longer involved in Salsa but “back in the day”( a time when one would go out 7 nights a week and see the same people) he was doing the rounds along with Nelson Batista and Elder Sanchez and Homero Gonzalez. Later on I learned cross body style form a variety of teachers incl Robert Charlemagne and Mario & Susana which prompted me to fuse the 2 styles together. This is the style I that I’ve been teaching over the past 8 years and will be teaching @ The Langthorne. I am also the host of an internet radio show The SalsaSabro’ Sessions on Generation Radio which airs every Saturday from 8-10pm. Salsa and other Latin beats can be heard; even a bit of Kizomba on the odd occasion. You can listen to Steevo’s Sessions log on to: www.generationradio.co.uk Thank you. Steevo

Robert Charlemagne – Salsa Dance Teacher

Robert Charlemagne Started teaching in 1992, combining his knowledge from a professional contemporary, jazz background with a mix of New York, Cuban and L.A. style to create a funky fresh new look to Salsa. First teachers were Xiomra and Nelson Batista, and many other teachers around the world after. Starting out with a class of five pupils at the University College of London as a paid teacher working one day a week, classes soon grew and word spread’ In 1993, Robert entered the UK Salsa competition and came second two years in a row. He then went on to enter the European Salsa Competition in Copenhagen, representing the UK. This is where he realized there is more to Salsa dancing then just moves, and that the way moves wear executed meant a whole lot more. Returning to London a complete Salsa junkie, armed with new moves picked up from experienced dancers and dance teachers from all over the world, Robert became a unique Salsa teacher. Robert has traveled to Greece, Hong Kong, Oslo, France, Gambia, Washington, Bangkok, Holland, Italy and Sweden, (to name a few), teaching workshops around the world. 1994 Represented the UK as a judge in the Rome Salsa Dance Competition 1998 & 1999 Represented the UK at the European Salsa Festival in Holland 1999 Represented the UK in the Washington Salsa Festival, and many others. In 1998 became a member of the United Kingdom Alliance ( U.K.A.) Salsa Division.

Robert is now considered one of the leading Salsa teachers in the UK, and September 1999 won an award for best teacher in the UK

2002 UK Salsa Congress, Top teacher award.
