Osmani was born in ‘Habana Vieja’, a very special barrio of Havana, Cuba. He began his dancing journey at age 16 in Cuba.
Since then, the street was his main school and the stage became his second home. He was a member of several dance companies in Cuba, allowing him to improve his knowledge of dances like, Rumba, Afro-Cuban, Mambo, Cha Cha Chá and other traditional cuban dances, as well as Casino de Calle (also known as Salsa Cuban Style) and international dances like Samba and Hip-Hop.
His career as a teacher started back in Cuba in 2002. In 2006 he became a member of the german hip-hop crew ‘Just blaze’ led by Camillo Lauricella and with them became German Hip-Hop Champion. Since 2010 he provides his knowledge to his students, all the way from beginners to stage performer level. Together with his dance groups “Los Freakos” or the “Latin Instinct Dance Company” Osmani has already taught and performed on stage at several Salsa congresses in Germany and Europe and since 2013 he also performs as soloist!
With his energy, his didactic skills and his charme he will be an enrichment for UNiDNANZA this year again!
For many fans of Salsa he's perhaps the best Afro instructor in Europe. Therefore we're particularly proud to have him again at UNiDANZA this year!
Yoyo was educated as folklore and modern dance teacher at the E.N.A, Cuba's National School of Arts. He studied dance education at the I.S.A, the University of Arts in Havanna, finished in 2004 with distinction and subsequently worked as teacher at the I.S.A.
In 2002 Yoyo won the first prize at the choreography competition "Danza" in Havanna and during a stay in Germany became runner-up at the German Salsa Championships. His emphases lie - in addition to the Afro-Cuban dances - mostly on the Bailes Populares Cubanos (Son, Mambo, Cha Cha Chá, etc.).
Yorgenis Danger is not only an outstanding dancer and exceptionally gifted didact, but also an enthusiastic and charismatic person, whose positive attitude immediately transmits to his students. He lives in Germany since 2008 and teaches at the Casa Cultural in Bremen when he's not being a guest at one of the many Cuban festivals in Europe.
Studies at Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havanna, experiences as professional and show dancer for years in Cuba and Europe and recognized as a didactically excellent dance instructor.
This is the brief description for an artist most of you took to their hearts the last years during his visits at UNiDANZA! Julio was rated one of the most favored UNiDANZA instructors from last years not without cause. He's not only a remarkable instructor and artist whose workshops you're going to love, but above all muy simpatico!
A person who perfectly matches the big UNiDANZA family. That's why we're extremely happy that he'll join our trainers' line-up again this year.
He used to be announces as the hottest newcomer within the Afro-Cuban salsa community. But we believe that it is time to announce him no longer as a newcomber but as one of the most talented dancers and best dance teachers around Europe!
At 17, the native Portuguese found his enthusiasm for salsa. In no time the talented student became an amazing dancer and teacher. Only two years later, Luis founded his own dance group (Hot Tumbao), who won the qualification tournament of the Stargate competition at the EuroSalsa & Sensual Festival in Düsseldorf some years ago.
Luis is a prime example for the new generation artists of our community: didactically perfect, sympathetic, well present at the parties and with a lot of time for the participants of his workshops.
We are looking forward to having Luis on board again this year!
