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
To-do list: wake up, HAVE SOME COFFEE, DANCE BACHATA! Anton is packed with energy and you should definitely attend one of his classes. Anton has been dancing as a hobby for a while, mainly practising ballroom dances. However, he was in Munich and a friend of his invited him to come and see Bachata/Salsa classes which she was attending. He was surprised that you were able to mix partners during the class. He also loved the chill atmosphere - improvisation blended with taught steps. He started teaching in November 2019. Anton is currently focusing on Bachata Sensual and Modern. He thinks that in Bachata, there’s a perfect balance between dancing side by side and also apart.
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.
“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.
Minu teekond tantsumaailma algas 2015.aastal, kui ma avastasin ladinatantsud (salsa, bachata, kizomba). Varasemalt tegelesin üle kümne aasta võitluskunstide ja muusika õppimisega. Zouk võitis minu südame 2 aastat hiljem. Pärast arvukaid tantsufestivale ja töötubasid tunnustatud zouki õpetajate käe all tunnen kuidas zouk on pakkunud mulle kõige tugevamaid tantsulisi elamusi nii partneriga ühenduse loomise kui ka oma keha tunnetamise osas. Just seetõttu on minu missiooniks kujunenud zouki edendamine Eestis!
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!
Olen üles kasvanud koos muusika, tantsu ja teatriga. Salsaga alustasin juhuslikult umbes seitse aastat tagasi.
Alguses keskendusin LA salsale ja kizombale kuid niipea kui puutusin kokku kuuba salsa ja kõige sellega kaasnevaga (reggaeton, afrokuuba, üleüldine kehaisolatsiooni tehnka) tegin kannapöörde.
Kuuba salsat olen praeguseks tantsinud oma 4 aastat. Selle aja jooksul olen ennast pidevalt täiendanud välismaiste õpetajate käe all ja teinud lisaks ka iseendaga tööd. Minu jaoks on kuuba salsa midagi lihtsalt nii ägedat mida ma pean jagama, ilma ei saa, seega ma usun, et ka minu tundides on seda positiivset energiat küllaga tunda.
Elada selleks, et tantsida, tantsida selleks, et elada.

Kerrit began her dancing journey in 2014 when she first stepped into a dance school for a salsa trial class. There was no way back - many classes, dance parties, travelling for dancing and festivals took over her life. Dancing is her meditation, self expression, socialising, workout, and much more. She’s more than happy to infect our students with this passion now!
