fblogoAbout Us

Richard’s Dance Academy began as Richards Latin dance back in 1992.
In 1994 became Salsaduende. We are a dance school that focussed on Salsa and Latin dances.
In 2013, we became known as Richard’s Dance Academy thus incorporating all the styles that are taught.
I have been a Latin dance professional since 1992. My dance styles are Cuban Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cha Cha Cha, Forro and Argentine Tango. I teach these to a high level. I also enjoy teaching Beginners very much.

I have Ballroom/Latin Gold medals with the I.S.T.D.(honours) and can teach most of those styles up to Intermediate level.
Dance has been a passion of mine since I was a child. I was pushed back into it around 1987.
Teaching has taken me around the world. Since 1995.
I have taught in St Johns(Antigua), Marigot(St Marten) Playa Dorado(Dominican Republic), Havana and Trinidad(Cuba), Poros (Greece) Buenos AiresArgentina, Colonia (Uruguay) Sunnyvale( USA), Paris( France, Blanes, Madrid(Spain), Prague(Czech Republic) Pattaya(Thailand) 2013.
