Laucinda trained with several Mambo / Salsa teachers & performers, including an Arts Council funded training week in 2003 with Frankie Martinez & private training / performance experience with Emma & Mushi of Salsology, plus she is a UKA Licentiate qualified Salsa teacher. She spent time in New York brushing up on her Santo Rico techniques & Afro-Latin body movement with Abakua. She runs the Encuentro Latino Dance Company in York teaching weekly Salsa classes as well as guest teaching & running socials. Such is her devotion to her students, she spent much of 08/09 preparing some of her advanced level for performance experience. Her student show Ran Kan Kan went down a storm all over the north. Her students are proud to have performed in Dansopolis at the West Yorkshire Playhouse & at GB Sexp II. Laucinda & her husband Gareth have also taught at International Congresses: Mambocity 5 Star International Congress 12' & 13', The UK Congress 06', Britfest 06 & 07 & The Great British Salsa Experience 08, 09 & 10. Their most recent show Vacilon, choreographed & directed by Laucinda & Gareth was well received & performed all over from the Midlands to the North East!

Laucinda will be teaching and performing at Brandsby with Ben Dove who has been training with Encuentro Latino since 2004 and has performed in both the student and semi-pro shows.
