Salsa / Bachata Trainer
Edward Benibo was born in Balham, and raised in Trinidad and Tobago where he first began listening to a mixture of musical influences. Growing up as a ‘Trini,’ he could only be grateful for the rich sounds of calypso, dub(reggae), parang and soca. Keeping abreast of what happens in the world around us comes as second nature to anyone living in that country, with Brit Pop, Hip-Hop, Motown, Rap and Rock being readily available. Dancing was hidden deep in his blood however it did not include partnership dancing, something he learned upon his return to London many years ago. This made him even more appreciative of the Cosmopolitan melee which London offers, not to mention a few patient Cuban salsa teachers he has met over the last 20 years. Salsa has seen Edward being cast in movies as extras, stand-ins and performances over the years.
It is for this very reason Edward approaches every class he has taught in the last 10 years with the necessity to reinvest that same sense of accomplishment and excitement he felt as a shy beginner back into his students. Edward has often said, ‘if I knew everything about salsa I would stop doing it. There is so much more to learn in salsa that I would be happy to be seen as an experienced student sharing with other students in my classes.’ His sessions are engaging, laid back and challenging all at the same breath. You will be guaranteed to wonder were the time went, only to promise to come back for more salsa dancing knowledge
