The first Academy specialized in Cuban Styles starting from Afro-Cuban, Franco-Haitian and Popular Folklore to Cuban Modern Dance Technique and Urban Dances, and how to incorporate them into Cuban salsa
The Cuban Styles Academy in Malta consists in the study of the five main sections which group the different Cuban dance styles:
Cuban Modern Dance Technique, Afro-Cuban, Franco-Haitian, Popular Cuban Folklore and Urban Style.
We offer professional Cuban Dance courses aimed for everyone (from beginner to advanced) who would like to study and make the difference in order to be able to dance ANY Caribbean Style SOLO, in COUPLES and in a GROUP (choreography & rueda de casino).
It is an Academy because, unlike a conventional Cuban Salsa class, all Cuban styles are explained through an Academic Method created and conducted by Prof. Famoso Salvador Rodriguez, who is specialized in Afro-Cuban, Franco-Haitian and Popular Music, Dance and Culture:
FSR Method (• Functional • Successful • Revolutionary).
Famoso Salvador Rodriguez is a Professor certified at Universidad de Oriente (International Relations Section) in Santiago de Cuba. He is specialized in the methodology of teaching Cuban Dance with the mission that everyone can learn Cultural, Musical and Dance roots.
In the past 10 years, Salvador has trained more than 500 professional dancers and is the founder of the FSR Method, one of the most complete to develop any dance style.
During the five University years, Salvador developed not only talents as a dancer but a strong desire to spread this culture specializing in the art of teaching as a professor and choreographer. He reached such maturity that he graduated at the end of five years, as Professor, Dancer and Choreographer in Afro-Cuban and Franco-Haitian dance, culture and music.
Additionally, Salvador is a Fitness Instructor with 11 years of experience specialized in different sectors focused on the preparation of the body.
