Introduction: Juinier Quintero was born in Cuba. At a very young age he developed a love for dancing and music. He participated in dance competitions, festivals, and auditions. At the age of 18, he enrolled in Higher Institute of Art in Cuba (ISA), a very prestigious art academy in Havana, and among the top in the country. He graduated after 4 years with an enormous knowledge of Cuban dances, e.g. Salsa, Son, Rumba, Mambo, Cha cha cha, as well as Afro-Cuban folkloric dances. Soon after graduation, he joined the Conjunto Folklorico Nacional of Cuba as a professional dancer. This gave him the opportunity to be part of important roles, like acting and dancing in a movie called "Dancing for my Havana," now available on Amazon Prime Video. In 2013 he was invited to come to the United States as part of the first annual Cuban Cultural Festival in Tampa, FL. Currently, he is an established dancer, teacher, and choreographer who works with Ife-Ile Dance Company, and has worked with Sikan Afro Cuban Dance Project, DAF Studio, etc. He is experienced with children and adults, and makes the experience of dancing fun and easy.

Sol and Jun were amazing! We did three 2-hour sessions with them to prepare for our wedding dances. They really helped with our choreography and were so patient and energetic while we were going through all the moves. We learned so much from them! We feel great about our wedding dance now! We even asked them to help out with a Bollywood dance from YouTube that we were trying to emulate. They watched the YouTube video like 50 times at home and then came with some really great tips! I would highly recommend working with them! They are amazing!!

Sol and Jun were so much fun to work with. I am so glad I came across their profile and reached out. They taught our group of 8 an amazing salsa class at our airbnb for my bachelorette. They made all of us feel comfortable learning a new skill (not a group of dancers!) and finished the class with an incredible dance together. They were friendly, flexible and honestly the highlight of our weekend trip! Thank you Sol and Jun!

Details: 26-35 • A group of 5-10 people • Salsa • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Aside from my hourly rate, I also offer packages of 5 and 10 classes for a discounted price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I tailor my teaching style to my students' needs based on their individual physical abilities. While each person has different and mixed abilities, everyone has the capacity to learn how to dance. It's just a matter of working with what you've got to reach a level of adeptness that is to your satisfaction, but still organic and within your reach.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    From an early age, I participated in dance competitions and festivals. When I was of age, I enrolled in the University of Arts of Cuba (ISA), a prestigious art academy in Havana. I graduated after 4 years with a wealth of knowledge in Cuban dances, e.g. Salsa, Son, Rumba, Mambo, Cha cha cha, as well as Afro-Cuban folkloric dances. Since then I've been teaching, dancing, and choreographing for all kinds of events and occasions.
