Kate JamesKate James - Salsa Teacher

In 2001 Kate met a group of Cuban salsa dancers whilst living in France. After a year of learning the ropes from Ruben and Miguel, Kate moved back to Wales and started her own classes, first in Cuban style salsa and La Rueda and later moving on to LA style salsa.

Kate set up her first class in Le Caprice in Llanelli and after several months of training formed the group Salsa Caprice. The group toured across Wales, performing at several well know festivals and venues including the National Botanical Gardens and Talgarth Festival.

By 2003, Kate had branched out and was teaching across South Wales, with weekly classes in Cardiff, Swansea and Barry. In 2007 Kate spent a month backpacking and dancing her way across Cuba, meeting fantastic Cuban dancers and learning real Cuban talents. Kate is now based in Cardiff and runs the annual Cubanaloca Wales Salsathon and teaches every Thursday with the Dancalatina team.
