It is with regrets and sadness that Salsaria is cancelling the Salsa Intensive Workshops with Lucho Giraldes, who is very ill and has canceled all his Canadian Tours. We will work with him in the near future to make this a go! In the mean time, we wish him a quick recovery and to get well soon!! Those of you who have pre-paid will be contacted to have your refund. We will honor your free entrance to the Social on April 2nd. Sorry again for the inconveniences this may have caused!
Salsaria is proud to present Lucho Giraldes from Agentina! Come and learn from one of the most-liked and well known artists on the salsa circuit. Lucho was an instructor to David Zepeda (from David and Paulina), who went on to be a Salsa On2 World Champion. Lucho has been dancing well over 20 years and has been showcasing and instructing at various salsa festivals and congresses around the world!
Here are a few of Lucho Giraldes’ accomplishments:
• Teacher and mentor of several dancers around the world, many of them world champions.
• Argentinian and South American salsa champion.
• Represented Argentina in competitions and congresses
• Has been a judge in various salsa and bachata competitions, such as Argentina Salsa Open and World Latin Dance Cup.
• Recognized for maintaining the roots of salsa alive through a course called History of Salsa, combining dance and theory, as well as for his unique dance style, full of musicality and energy, and influenced by traditional mambo.
• Has danced with great artists such as El Gran Combo, Victor Manuel and Tito Allen.
With impeccable skills, style and charisma, Lucho deliver instructions to master salsa techniques with ease.
This project has been in the making since September 2015, and we are proud to see it comes to fruition. Take advantage of this rare occasion and train with one of the best!
