Portugal-born Luis developed his enthusiasm for salsa and Afro-cuban dances from the age of 17. In a very short time, he became an astonishing dancer and dance teacher.

Luis has later spent a period of time in Cuba improving his dance style. After returning to Germany, Luis started to learn different dance styles such as ballet, capoeira and breakdance to expand his dancing skills.

By combining these different elements with salsa he developed his unique and distinctive style and musicality.

The last years Luis has been teaching salsa at his dance school El Chevere in Hamburg.  He has also been touring continuously from one event to another, some of them amongst the most important festivals in Europe.

Luis is a prime example for the new generation of 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 excited to have Luis on board in the artist team of the SalsaNor Rueda Congress 2019.
