Rafael 2

Rafael is widely recognised as one of the very best proponent of authentic Cuban Salsa, Mambo and Rumba dance style and is still a very active, performing dancer (and percussionist!), performing professionally as a modern dancer, and teaching Cuban Salsa, Mambo and Rumba for many, many years.

Rafael has taught at previous Salsa feel the heat events and it is a great pleasure to have him back with us once again and we are sure that many participants will look forward to joining his classes.
