Leslie Andoh-Wilson

Leslies Tanzbegeisterung fing im Jahr 2004 an. Nach intensiver Weiterbildung in Salsa und Bachata begann er Ende

2005 eigene Kurse zu leiten. Dabei ging es ihm schon damals darum, seine Schülern nicht nur „die richtigen Schritte“ beizubringen, sondern sie in ihrer Kreativität und Ausdrucksfähigkeit so gut wie möglich zu unterstützen und zu fördern. 

Teil seiner Unterrichtsphilosophie ist es, verschiedene Stile zu vermischen. So enthält sein Salsa- und Bachata-Unterricht auch Elemente aus Hiphop, Breakdance und Freestyle. Außerdem ermuntert er seine Schüler, die Musik zu fühlen und den Mut zu haben, auch mal lässig zu sein. Schließlich sind dem Tanz keine Grenzen gesetzt, und er ist der festen Überzeugung, dass man aus jeder noch so simplen Bewegung etwas Erhabenes hervorzaubern kann.

Leslie investiert ständig in seine tänzerische und didaktische Ausbildung und tritt regelmäßig auf vielen internationalen Tanzkongressen.
