A little about your teachers.

Sara & Sebastian
A passion for dance brought Sara and Sebastian together in early 2012 when they first became dance partners. Since then, they have performed, competed and travelled both nationally and internationally for the purpose of expanding their knowledge in order to become better dancers in the styles of Salsa and Bachata.

Learning and improving with the assistance of the World’s top Latin dancers helped them take their dancing to another level. They have also been mentored by Karen and Ricardo (9x World Salsa Cabaret Champions) since 2014. Extreme dedication, hard work, and their extensive amateur dance partnership have paid off over the years by both of them not only being the most consecutive NZ Amateur Salsa Champions to date, but also becoming the Australian Amateur Salsa and Bachata Champions in 2015 and the World’s Salsa on1 Amateur Sub-Champions at the World Latin Dance Cup in December 2016 in Miami, Florida.

Sara and Sebastian turned professional in 2017 to challenge themselves even further. Since, they have competed in the South American Championships (Chile World Latin Dance Cup Qualifier) Professional Salsa on 1 Category where they respectfully secured 1st place. Over the last year they have toured both Asia and Europe where they've performed and taught at some of the World's most popular Latin festivals.

Ben Hammond
Ben Hammond is an 11x Street Latin dance champion who has taken New Zealand by storm with his non-conforming performances. His ability to continue to grow and push the gender bending norms has had him invited to perform and teach at some of the most prestigious events across Australasia, as well as working with some of the top artists in the country and co-coaching one of New Zealand’s most wanted teams alongside Fern Ngatai. Through his work he hopes to share his love and knowledge, challenging the way others think and create their art.
