Teacher presentation: Carlos Correa

29.11.2019

This mans smile lights up every dance floor! He has been brightening up the Finnish salsa scene for decades with his smile and professionalism. The first steps of salsa feel easy and comfortable in his guidance.

Carlos is one of the first salsa instructors in Finland. After three years in Finland, Carlos got to know Miguel Verdecia (founder of dance school Baila Baila), who offered him a place in his dance group. Carlos' always sunny appearance and clear style of teaching draw the studios full of students no matter where. Many come to his lessons regularly to learn more patterns in couple salsa and rueda.

Since the beginning of 2000 Carlos has also been spending more time behind the dj decks. When dj Don C is playing there is a party also in the dj booth! He is not just spinning the records but the whole man is whirling around playing the maracas, clave or guiro!

At the West Coast Salsa Festival he will be teaching eg. salsa and couple salsa as well as being one of the dj's at the festival parties. Check out the workshop schedule here.

PS. Full Festival Pass only 110 € until the end of December. Including all workshops and parties during the three day festival! Get your tickets here
