Latin Ballroom Dance
I am a profesional dancer and actress, graduated from the Superior Academy of Arts (Asab) and National Theater of Bogotá - Colombia. I have worked on several projects as an actress, dancer, and choreographer. As a teacher I worked on developing movement skills of the students of acting, young dancers of contemporary dance, and groups of children developing their skills in different techniques of dance such a Traditional Latin American rhythms, urban dance and contemporary dance. In the last two years, I have been giving private classes of various dancing techniques to the students from “Superprof” platform (London-Barcelona)
Perfect! We have done salsa lessons with Andrea for the last couple of months - starting from scratch - and it has been AMAZING. Andrea is - of course - a very capable dancer, but she is also energetic, considerate, super reliable and just such fun to work with and learn from. Could not recommend her highly enough. Many thanks

Their incredible energy make that the time goes fast. Thank you a lot for been such a good students . See you next class!!

Perfect! Patient, good skills and teaching. She had connected me with my latin roots!

Perfect! Andrea is a very good teacher, both in terms of being very good at what she is doing, but also making you feel at ease!

Always looking forward to go to dance and improve my bachata with Andrea!
Perfect! Andrea is an amazing teacher - full of passion and knowledge. She was very efficient and responsive. all round excellent.
Perfect! Andreas passion for Salsa really comes to life through her lessons. Patient, infectiously enthusiastic, knowledgeable and structured in her approach. You won't find a better teacher. 10/10
Perfect! Great teaching from Andrea
- Andrea's response : We are having a very nice process, Moh is being very conscious and is learning in detail the different aspects of our style (salsa), well done Moh!!
Perfect! Andrea is amazing. I went with absolutely no experience and Andrea helped me to quickly pick it up. She is an amazing teacher and person. However good or novice you are, Andrea is the perfect teacher. Definitely recommended!
Perfect! I came to Andrea with very little experience of Salsa or dancing in general, I just wanted to try one Latin method of dance. Andrea from the start was a very methodical teacher, teaching me the very basics to begin with and building up slowly in layers with each lesson. She has infinite patience, as I am not a natural dancer and pick up things slowly, but her fun personality and drive is contagious. I enjoyed all our lessons and the time flew. I also felt I was getting better each lesson. I was a complete beginner and she was excellent for me, but I quickly saw she herself is an amazing dancer and could teach well at all levels. She never stopped smiling, despite my many mistakes. Every minute of our lessons was fun. I would thoroughly recommend Andrea as a dance teacher to anyone, whatever your level.
Perfect! I’ve really enjoyed my salsa classes with Andrea! Not only are they really fun but she is an amazing teacher. I came in to her class as a complete beginner with no experience of Salsa and its concepts whatsoever. Three months later and I have timing, knowledge of the basic steps, and a repertoire of turns I never imagined I would be able to do! Very happy I took this journey and can’t recommend her highly enough :))
- Andrea's response : Masoud is a great student. Since we met on our first class, he was very interested in learning about salsa technique in all its dimensions, about Latin America culture, styles, and way to move.
It is very important to me and makes me very happy to see how he develops his dance abilities and how he enjoys each class, learning not just about salsa but also about the body and all its capacities.
Well done Masoud!
Perfect! Andrea was super patient and encouraging! Extremely knowledgeable, guiding my two left feet with care and precision.
Perfect! As a Christmas present to my girlfriend, I got us 5 salsa lessons with Andrea. We were complete beginners and she showed us the ropes really well. I wouldn't consider myself as a great dancer (or a dancer at all!) but Andrea has managed to get even me to improve. More importantly we have lots of fun in our lessons and I would not hesitate in recommending Andrea to anyone wanting to learn dance. (My girlfriend also thinks it's the best Christmas present ever!))
Perfect! Andrea has been an extraordinary dance tutor and has far surpassed expectations! Having been to many different classes across London, I can safely say the experience with Andrea is second to none.
I leave every class feeling like I have learned something new and perfected something learned in a previous class. Andrea also does a fantastic job at making you feel confident in your ability to use what you learn (which makes a huge difference as a beginner)!
Within 2 classes with Andrea I felt confident enough to go to a Salsa social and dance. If you want to learn to dance you have absolutely found the best person to teach you.
- Andrea's response : I’m very happy and satisfied with the work that we are doing with Patrick, he is very energetic, has a lot of discipline, and he is very interested in the salsa culture, what allows to advance very quickly in each class. He has a very good sense of rhythm, and has a very good body memory.
Well done Patrick, keep working like that, you are doing a very good job
Perfect! Andrea is very charming and makes me feel at ease instilling confidence. She is very courteous and patient. Andrea teaches very thoroughly and I feel I am learning a lot.
Perfect! Andrea es una buena profesora. Muy fácil entender bailar de ella.
- Andrea's response : Una clase fue muy productiva, tenía previos conocimientos en el estilo (salsa), así que fue muy fácil conectarnos y practicar nuevos giros. Muy buena experiencia
One class was very productive, had previous knowledge in the style (salsa), so it was very easy to connect and practice new turns. Very good experience
Perfect! Great salsa teacher! She is unique as she offers you a 360º view of salsa: technique, musical understanding (salsa timing), partnership (lead, partner empathy, etc.). If you want to learn real salsa and not only a few steps she is the one! Strongly recommended!
- Andrea's response : Carlos es un alumno muy comprometido con su proceso, tiene una gran conciencia de su cuerpo, presta especial atención al trabajo del ritmo y la técnica de la salsa en general. Siempre tiene una gran motivación por aprender, lo que le permite disfrutar cada momento de la clase.
Perfect! Andrea es una superprofe, paciente y siempre positiva. Si es capaz de enseñar salsa a alguien tan patoso como yo significa que lo hace muy bien.
- Andrea's response : Con Albert las clases son muy agradables, vamos poco a poco aprendiendo todos los componentes necesarios para bailar salsa. Es un alumno muy carismático, le gusta aprender y sobre todo disfrutar de la música y el baile.
Perfect! Superprofesora, disfruta dando las clases y viendo cómo mejoro día a día ,disfruta enseñando y se vuelca en las clases un 10!
- Andrea's response : Oriol es un estudiante de esos que te motivan, su carisma y buena disposición,hace que el aprendizaje sea fluido, que los temas vistos tengan una continuidad y un desarrollo clase tras clase. Su evolución durante el primer mes de clase ha sido muy positiva.
Perfect! Andrea es increíble. Es muy profesional, siempre enseña algo nuevo, inspira y presta atención a cada detalle. Es que al mismo tiempo las clases con ella son tan divertidas que cada hora parece un segundo
- Andrea's response : Jan, es de esos alumnos que superan al maestro, que te motivan, que te retan todo el tiempo, con un gran sentido del ritmo, que escucha y entiende los tiempos musicales del género estudiado, muy receptivo y con un gran interés por aprender cosas nuevas en cada clase.
Perfect! Andrea es una profesora muy profesional, con grandes dotes en enseñanza basada en todo tipo de danza, desde la más tradicional a las contemporánea. Desde el primer día, me dí cuenta de que con ella iba a aprender rápido y adquirir un mayor conocimiento en bailes latinos, hip-hop, etc. Totalmente recomendable.
- Andrea's response : Las clases con Jonatan son muy agradables , tiene una gran disposición, ganas de aprender y las disfruta mucho , eso hace que que la evolución y el proceso tenga un balance muy positivo .
Perfect! Una clase fue genial. Andrea presta mucho atención a los detalles. Aprendi pasos nuevos en manera divertida.
- Andrea's response : Las clases con Jacek fueron geniales,un alumno con muchas ganas de aprender la técnica con mucha motivación buena memoria y sobre todo, con un gusto especial por los ritmos latinos.
Perfect! Andrea es una maestra excelente y muy profesional. Técnicamente conoce todos los pasos y lo mejor de todo es que sabe cómo explicárselos a una persona que lucha con los ritmos básicos. Estuve muy feliz con la clase.
- Andrea's response : Nuestra primera clase con Jonny fue muy agradable, tiene muchas nociones de los tiempos y los pasos básicos de salsa, aprende con facilidad y es muy receptivo, lo que le permitirá tener una evolución significativa en su técnica. Muy buen comienzo !!

She was an amazing teacher. I learnt much in such a short space of time. She is full of energy every minute of your hour. I can't wait to have more lessons in the future.
I am working with Andrea to learn Bachata. She is super passionate about dance and is bursting with positive energy. Her lessons are fun, challenging and professional. I reccomend her highly.

We found Andrea to be a highly capable (she's clearly a professional dancer) and versatile teacher for both me and my gf for salsa. In just 4 classes we feel much more confident in the basics. We hope to have one more class with her and will actually keep in touch as we found her to be very likable. She also recommend good salsa places for us once COVID stops.
Andrea is an amazing teacher. I highly recommend you try a class with her. You won’t regret it!
Andrea is the smiliest, friendliest, welcoming and the most patient teacher I've ever danced with. Her style is relaxed and fun and she has the best playlist! If you're thinking about geting into salsa, Andrea is the teacher for you!
Andrea clearly has a passion for dance and this passion is exuded through her teaching. Andrea is knowledgable, friendly and a great teacher. Andrea will structure your lessons around a plan that fits with your objectives and she shares in your joy as you begin to see your development. I couldn't imagine having a better teacher.
Note: My lessons were for salsa / Cuban salsa.
Andrea is a great dancer and teacher. She has a very good methodology to pass her knowledge and experience to the students. Her classes have a holistic and comprehensive approach, and are suitable for any level of proficiency. She gives very good introduction to the beginners, providing them with a solid background of a particular dance type, and teaching them basic steps, as well as she helps more advanced students constantly improve, by working on their technique and preparing new movements for them to learn. She is very professional, she pays attention to the details, and her classes are always well prepared and organized. She is also very friendly, kind and she emanates a lot of positive energy. Therefore, classes with Andrea are extremely effective and super fun.
Andrea es una de las mejores Actrices y bailarinas que he conocido en mi recorrido artístico. Además tiene una capacidad de transmitir sus conocimientos increíble, una excelente pedagoga.

What age did you start dancing at? Tell us about this time or moment in your life.
In Colombia, one starts to dance at a very young age. Music is everywhere, at home, on the streets, at family parties and national celebrations, and so, since I was a child, I felt the music resonating in my body and I could dance for hours. When I was in high school, I started to take part in dancing and acting workshops, and that is when I fell in love with movement, the way of expressing myself. Therefore, I've been dancing professionally for 18 years, but for sure I had been already moving way before then.
What are your favorite styles of dance ; those that you practice at a high level, a simple hobby, and a dance that you'd still like to discover?
Latin American rhythms (salsa, bachata, merengue, traditional Colombian dances like cumbia, bullerengue, champeta) and contemporary dance. As a hobby I practice voguing and street dance, and I have a special affection for Spain so I would love to learn flamenco.
What gives you the motivation and passion to pursue your profession as a dancer?
To be able to touch and be touched through the movement is a great opportunity to be part of the social transformation. To see how the people express themselves through dance being amazed by what they can achieve with their bodies, learning a technique, being disciplined and going beyond their own limits and those imposed by our society. That makes me love my profession, that's why I get up motivated every morning to create and share my passion with others. To encourage them to love themselves and their movement, and to go as far as they can. Because that's the only way. To work hard, be extremely disciplined, and go farther than you can, because there will always be a higher step to reach.
Do you have a dance achievement that you're particularly proud of?
The first time I directed a dance performance was extremely challenging. To be aware of everything, choreographies, dancers' emotions, scenography, music, costumes, well, everything that you learn from the artists involved in your project, what you learn about you as an artist and person, makes you feel so grateful and absolutely strong. And when the curtain rises, and you see those amazing and strong artists at the stage giving it all, soul, discipline, love, and working together with the others to make the magic happens, is to me the most incredible feeling and one of my career experiences that makes me most proud of.
How have your achievements and challenges made you a better dancer?
Every challenge in my life as an artist or as a person, makes me better and stronger. It allows me to grow and believe that the only way to achieve all your dreams and profesional goals is to work hard, be persistent, be curios and creative, and understand that the mistakes are there to teach you something. The competition between us is just an opportunity to empower ourselves to not put limits on our way, and all the challenges that I have had during my career made me understand that I'm unique and there is no reason to compare to others. Everyone has their own path, everyone is a universe.
If you had to go for a jog with a famous dancer, who would you choose? And what questions would you ask them?
How do you create your choreographies? What is your inspiration?
Maykel Fonts ( one of the best salsa dancers in the world)
How much time do you dedicate to your dance ?
What are your thoughts about dance and movement?
Where does your strength come from ?
Pina Bauch ( Icon of contemporary dance)
Why dance is taste of freedom?
What dance means for you?
How do you help people stay motivated?
As a super prof teacher, I always tend to see the positive side of every situation, hearing and identifying what the students' interest is, what they want to learn, what their goals are.
Then, I look for the best way to maintain them motivated, giving them challenging material, recognising their achievements and setting higher goals.
And with this dynamic, rising goals and going beyond them, we can go as far as the students want. But the most important thing is to make them love their own movement and their own way to express themselves. In that way, we can enjoy the pleasure of dance and share all what we are with freedom and confidence.
When you reach the professional stage and make this profession your way of living, it is quite different. Sometimes you don't feel comfortable with your process, sometimes your body and mind are tired, sometimes you have a very big challenges that seem difficult to overcome. That is the moment when the motivation comes, from the confrontation with those difficulties. You start to dedicate more time to those dance pieces that you need to get, being more conscious and knowledgeable about your own body.
What makes you a Superprof in dance?
I think it's my passion for dance, the strong desire to share it with people, and big satisfaction that I feel seeing their achievements.
