Since 2009 I’ve been a salsa teacher in Glasgow. Right now I have 6 classes, mainly at an advance level. I find there is actually a strong link between teaching dance and science communications. With both the goals are the same- to take some fairly complicated information and share it in an understandable, accessible and fun way.
I love salsa. I have met some fantastic people through it and have taught hundreds of people, many of whom have evolved into fabulous dancers.
I teach for the Academia De Salsa School and I am very proud to have grown my classes to have the biggest regular following in Glasgow.
I’ve managed to weave science into my salsa every now and then. One particular example was the Science Of Salsa event at Glasgow Science Centre.
Maybe you'd like to give it a go?!
