SEAN

Sean Reniers started his dancing career with ballroom dance, LA salsa, bachata and kizomba before discovering the pleasure and joy of Cuban salsa. He developed his knowledge and skills looking up to his favourite dance couples Danger & Yunaisy and Wilmer & Maria.

In Leuven he is known as an enthusiastic and very structured teacher spreading the fun of Cuban dance in all his classes and during all the parties at Café Manger. His students also know he likes Tripel Karmeliet and Cuba Libre

Also, he is a certified Son Moderno teacher by Danger & Yunaisy.


AGNE

Agnė’s first exposure to Cuban culture happened through music: being a classical guitar player, she was sneaking Cuban pieces into her recitals, trying to escape the confines of the official curriculum of her music school. Thus, getting started with Latin dances and especially with Cuban salsa felt like coming home for her.

Before focusing on Cuban salsa, Agnė has been training in a variety of styles: from her early childhood she was dancing and performing Lithuanian folk dances for more than 10 years. Later she turned to dancing swing, blues, and lindy hop. Finally, the discovery of the Latin dance world has severely worsened her dance addiction and she did not stop exploring this world ever since.

Besides Cuban salsa, she dances Brazilian zouk, bachata, kizomba, and other styles of salsa. In the Cuban dance world, her biggest inspirations are her teacher and idol Sandra Saikauskaitė who shows how timba can be both fierce and elegant, Yunaisy Farray who mixes traditional Cuban dances with the precision of ballet techniques, and Wilmer & Maria – two Cubans who mix Afro-Cuban movement with the techniques of contemporary dance. In her own dance, Agnė focuses on incorporating archetypically feminine movements and precise lines into Cuban salsa.



KATRIN

Katrin was born in Czech Republic. Since her childhood she has felt the love for music and dance. She has been trained in many styles of dance including ballroom dance, bachata, reggaeton, hip hop, LA salsa and Son Moderno. While in college Katrin discovered Cuban salsa and fell for the nice atmosphere in this dance and music. Her new found love of Cuban salsa led her to seek out Cuban dance masters as she travelled to Barcelona where she followed intensive courses of Son Moderno with Danger & Yunaisy.


Katrin is an energetic, strong and charismatic dancer. If you get the chance to attend her classes, don’t miss it!
