DJ Stannerz

My love for salsa started in 1996.  I was previously heavily involved in the soul/jazz funk/rare groove dance scenes, from the late 70s to early 90s.  I’ve always been into dance, albeit dancing as an individual, but the transition into partner dancing on the salsa scene came fairly easily.  On the soul/jazz funk/rare groove dance scenes you weren’t so much taught moves but there were always new dance moves emerging and you just watched and tried to copy as best you could.  So I was always learning.Being involved in the jazz and jazz funk scene exposed me to Brazilian samba and bossa nova music, which I loved, so it was a small step to the Latin music of salsa. I fell into teaching by accident.  I’ve always had a way of putting things across, and one day I was asked to teach.  Later, my love and knowledge of soul/Latin music genres eventually led to me being asked to DJ.  These days, on the Party Nights, I do not have time to teach, but I do have some great teachers.

What I do, is DJ.  This is one of my main loves. 

Watching people dance to the music that I like, and hopefully they also like, mixing the old with the new, is the best feeling for me.

 On these nights I try to ensure the music is ‘on point’ and place great importance on getting it right because this is a night of social dancing.

The music I play is the destiny I desire.”

Cuban teacher Billy Williams

Advanced&Intermediates Teacher KK 
I have been a qualified UKA salsa instructor for 23 years. From a very early age, I studied and enjoyed many forms of dance: ballet, modern, tap, jazz, stage, 50s/60s rock n roll and all the dances associated with the ballroom. 

My passion for salsa was ignited at The Rocket in Holloway over 30 years ago. The London clubs of that time belted out lambada, samba reggae and the hottest salsa. We danced the nights and mornings away to a hot mix of music. 

Now, my favourite place to dance is The Funky Latino: it has the same friendly, inclusive vibe that I love with everyone out to have fun, socialise and dance to different beats. As one of their fully qualified ‘house’ instructors, I happily draw upon my years of experience on the dance floor and teaching expertise to inject fun into the classes. At the same time, my aims are to show you how to dance safely whilst adopting a coveted, authentic technique so you ‘feel good’ and ‘look great’!

One of my amazing Cuban mates taught me this saying: ‘Cuando nada es seguro, todo es posible,’ so come along to our club night, try bachata or kizombe, experience a different style of salsa, learn a new move in my class, dance with a different partner and simply enjoy yourself!

Whilst at University in Leeds, she enjoyed dancing 7 nights a week, and her passion for teaching beginners was born as she had the opportunity to teach for some wonderful teachers.

Laura loves a class full of beginners who think they can't dance and seeing the smiles as they realise they have done it!
