Make sure you get to know shooting star Yordano Bulgar! Having lived a tough childhood in Centro Habana, far from dance academies and cultural institutions, Yordano took his first dance steps as an adult. After only a couple of years of more or less dedicated training, he became a threat to most of the professionally trained dancers in Habana, being the natural talent that he is. While working as a dancer at 1830, he won the dance competition in the Cuban festival FIesta del Tambor and was discovered by organizers of Cuban dance festivals. Then he auditioned for the Cuban television competition in 2017 “So you think you can dance” (Bailando en Cuba), and was selected as the only non-professional dancer in the program, amongst thousands of auditioners. And during the 12 eliminatory programmes in 2018, with a very high dance level, he was the incredible runner-up! The offers for Yordano were many, and he accepted a place in the prestigious Lizt Alfonso Dance Company in Havana, where he has been trained professionally since last summer, and now performing as solo dancer.

The SalsaNor Rueda Congress will be Yordanos very first international congress, but definitely not the last! He is not only an incredible dancer, he is also a marvellous social dancer making every partner shine on the dance floor. And, he is also just the most lovable person; you will understand what we mean the moment you meet him! We are both proud and excited about inviting Yordano from Cuba straight to Bergen, Norway, for the Rueda Congress 2019!!
