Samantha started to make her first steps when she was 11, studying ballet, contemporary dance, ballroom and flamenco.
In 2001, in Italy Samantha discovered the Caribbean rhythms and it was pure love. Since then she couldn’t stop dancing Salsa!!
She started teaching in Galway, Ireland in 2012, for Dance project. In 2015, she invaded the Cork scene, by opening Salsa Cubana Cork with her dancing partner, Marco Bittoni, becoming quickly the main Cuban Salsa school in Cork City.
Samantha’s classes are focused on Salsa Cubana, Rueda de casino, Musicality, Isolation and Cuban style, Timba, Rumba and afro-latin rhythms.
She is continuing to expand her knowledge by attending numerous Salsa festivals, travelling to Cuba regularly, and training with teachers such as Yeni Molinet, Alberto Valdes and Daniele Indios and Alessia Rea.
The passion that she is able to share during her classes is addictive, together with her strong personality, volcanic energy and teaching skills.
