Leysis is back!!! We are thrilled! She was the main female teacher at the SalsaNor Rueda Congress 2017 in Stavanger for the first time, and we fell completely in love with this amazing dancer and teacher!
Born in La Havana, she started her artistic career at 7 years age at the Alicia Alonso’s national dance school. Then she moved on to ENA (la Escuela Nacional de Arte), and after that she entered the world famous Tropicana’s artistic school, directed by Santiago Alfonzo.
She has danced for the Cuban TV ballet and many important theaters and cultural centers in Cuba, and she has performed together with several famous cuban musical groups, such as Chucho Valdés, Maracas and Cesar Pedroso. Today she is living in Italy, training dancers and teachers on the five continents. Make sure to join one of her workshops early at the congress; you will want more!
