Passion is the energy that keeps us going - Fabian has the passion that keeps the dancefloor flowing! Fabian is from Cuba and his mother guided him to start taking lessons in ballet school. He liked the emotions - like a lot! - and he spent 15 years there. Afterwards, he decided to master his skills from the streets. He practised contemporary, Afro-Cuban, choreography, street dance etc. He focused on one style after the other, so he could get better in every style. He loves about teaching others that he can give his knowledge all in once - the history of dance, see how students grow in his hands and they become something. Dancing is not just something he does. Dance can solve his problems. When he is stressed, when he needs to think - he dances. Dancing is a way to live, it is a way of living
Angela is a cheerful and a very patient bachata instructor. Some like to refer to her “sweet as sugar and honey”. She always makes sure that her students get the steps and the body movement.
She discovered her way to dancing in high school where she was dancing contemporary style. She has also danced other styles like twerk, high heels and folk dances. When Angela was in the university, she discovered bachata and started practicing lady styling in Tartu. She moved back to Tallinn in 2021 and joined Bachata Studio Tallinn couples bachata and salsa classes. Countless hours spent in the studio paid off since other instructors started to notice her development and style. The rest is history!
Now Angela teaches bachata classes with Anton and Rado and is also giving lady styling classes. She keeps pushing herself and the students to be better and better everyday!
My name is Miguel Fachada (or should i say Bachata?) and i come from Portugal. I have been living in Estonia for the past 7 years and dancing for the last 4. Starting to dance was a goal for many years before, and it became a reality when i tried my first Bachata and Salsa lessons back in 2018.
From there i've been focusing more in Bachata. It's a workout to the body and mind, a learning experience and social journey, meeting amazing people on the way. Bachata has become a passion for a long time and i'm happy to share my soft and subtle dancing style with you. Meet me on the dance floor."

My journey into the dance world began in 2015, when I discovered Latin dances (salsa, bachata, kizomba). I used to study martial arts and music for over ten years. Zouk won my heart 2 years later. After numerous dance festivals and workshops under renowned Zouk instructors, I feel that Zouk has offered me the most powerful dance experiences both in terms of connecting with my partner and feeling my body. That is why my mission has become the development of the Zouk community in Estonia!
“Kuniks elu!” said Triin and danced until the very last song at the party.
Triin’s life full of dance started when her dad took her to Kaie Kõrb Ballet studio at the age of 5 - since then she never stopped. She danced Ballet for 7 years, later dance acrobatics and Estonian folk dance.
While at high school, she became member at Estonian dance agency, where she used to spend all her evenings - learning Classical, Contemporary, Jazz and various modern dance techniques.
She was brought to Latin Social dances by her Latin friends in 2015 when graduating high school in Belgium. She started with Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba, when later in 2019 discovered Zouk - her true love.
Since childhood dancing always fascinated me. It was in the autumn of 2020 when I met with the Latin vibe. Bachata Studio Tallinn arrived with huge power and full of emotions, so I devoted all my energy, time, and effort there till a hidden talent busted the doors and took over my body giving me the opportunity to get better and better. Thanks to teacher Fabian Arocha for all the hard work and never giving up on me, many performance opportunities came opening the way to being a teacher assistant. Growing takes lots of hard work, so I went to different festivals and participated in workshops with different high-level bachata dancers that made my knowledge grow.
For Anton Bachata was love from first steps. He has been on a constant quest to perfect his simple social dancing style that consists of sensual, modern and improvised moves. But don’t get fooled - in his classes you will get tons of technical details and personal feedback.

I grew up with music, dance and theater. I started salsa by accident about seven years ago.
At first, I focused on LA salsa and kizomba, but as soon as I came across Cuban salsa and everything that comes with it (reggaeton, Afro-Cuban, the general body isolation technique), I focused more on Cuban salsa.
I have been dancing Cuban salsa for 4 years now. During this time, I have continuously improved myself under international instructors and have also been training a lot by myself. For me, Cuban salsa is something so intense and cool that I have to share it. So I believe that this positive energy can also be felt in my classes.

Annika came into contact with dance for the first time at the age of 8, when she started doing competitive dance.

My technical background is from ballet which I'm now taking to my latest love and challenge - high heels.As a teacher I want to share my experience and womanly energy with you.
