My dancing journey started over 10 years ago when some friends had to convince me to join them to a salsa party, I was blown away watching these dancers and their amazing energy, I knew then that I found a hobby that will stick with me for a long time. I attended many salsa classes in different countries, and when I moved to Vaasa I decided to proceed by creating a community where people can meet and dance, this is when Salsa Vaasa was born.
I have always been a dance lover. Latin dance was not so popular in my country, that led me to start dancing at a late age. I enrolled to my first Salsa class 10 years ago in Damascus-Syria. I worked so hard to develop my skills with the limited resources I had. After two years, My partner and I won First Place in a local dancing competition for two years in a row 2010 and 2011. Two years later, we founded our own dance school named Salsa Spark Dance Academy.
I have always been interested in combining movement and music. I got quite late in my life an opportunity to start dancing more regularly: First in Tampere in high school and then at various dance schools after I moved to Vaasa ten years ago. For me the most important dance styles have always been afro- and caribbean based styles that bring above all pure fun, joy and enjoyment. You just want to smile, laugh, flirt and feel everything to the rhythm.
Our monthly parties will be on hold for now due to COVID-19. We will proceed when situation allows.
