8-hours of dance instructions by the Internationally Renowned Yenne Guibert Portuondo Direct from Cuba for limited time. This workshop is especially designed with salsa/ mambo dancers in mind to enrich your Cuban movement and learn how the movement connects to the music.
This is the chance of a lifetime to learn from a Professional Cuban instructor living in Cuba. As I have being studying with Yenne, I can personally attest to her excellence in the arts as
well as in teaching with a keen eye to help students improve. This is the reason I took the effort to bring this workshop to all of you.
Yenne is proficient in English so this is better than flying to Cuba to take dance
classes if you do not speak Spanish. Her US Visa ends soon so this may be the
ONLY opportunity you will have to learn
from a Master.
You can take the RUMBA Challenge and have the opportunity to Perform a short routine learned in the series with her at a selected local salsa club to be arranged.
Workshop Series is for both Men and Women of All levels. Wear something comfortable you can sweat in. Ladies can bring a circle skirt or a long scarf and Men can bring a handkerchief. Jazz shoes or comfortable flats recommended.
Yenne Guibert Portuondo was born in Guantanamo, Cuba. She started very young in the arts as a singer, then naturally included dancing participating in many events in her city. Yenne holds a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer from the pedagogical University in Guantanamo, Cuba. Here she joined the Jaguey Folklorico Dance
Company, which is part of major national and international events such as Fiesta del Fuego (James of Cuba), International Festival of Dance (Villa Clara), Festival of the Pyrenees (France, Spain, Belgium).
In 1999, she founded the folkloric dance company Siete Potencias in Havana Cuba. With the company, she hosts dance workshops in Folklorico Nacional de Cuba, and participates in
national events to achieve an evaluation as a professional singer and dancer, the highest award given to dancers by the Institute of Music. She has been in this group for 14 years as choreographer, singer and artistic and production director. She has taught Salsa, Rumba and Folklore for over 10 years in Havana.
She was invited to teach workshops and perform in England in 2013. In 2014, Yenne was one of the very few officially approved with Visa to come to US to represent Cuba's rich culture in dance and music.

Born on September 11, 2011, Mambo Groovin' started out at San Francisco's premier dance studio Symbolic Dance & Fitness with a weekly open class. The class uniquely focuses on development of rhythmic afro carribean body movement to reveal naturally in one's dancing; detailed mechanism in turns and spins; and shines that explore learned techniques and the use of space. The partnering work focuses on the development of connection between the partnership.
