Annalisa Zecchin

Annalisa started her journey into Afrocuban dances and Cuban folklore in 2003, when she got captivated by the rhythms, the musicality and the unique tradition of the Cuban culture. Since then, she embarqued in a never-ending adventure of nearly 20 years, studying dance, percussion and singing with the most influential artists and teachers in Cuba and around Europe. Over the years, she performed on stage with several groups, and she have been teaching Cuban dances, such as Salsa, Son, Rumba, and Afrocuban dances, both in Italy and in Belgium.

Her dance is informed as well with elements of afro and afro-contemporary dance, tango, contact improvisation, dance acrobatics. Her goal when teaching is to transmit to the students the richness of the Cuban dance traditions, and to help them find their own style, to be able to create a magic connection with themselves, the music and their dancing partners.

Annalisa teaches the lady style classes, and all the ladies are totally in love with her!
