Amanda Royes
Teacher & Performer

    A South Londoner born and
    bred, Amanda took her first
    foray into the world of dance at
    the tender age of three,
    studying ballet and tap until she
    was nine. But it was a few years
    yet before she got her very first
    taste of salsa when back in
    2001, under her mum's
    influence, she took her first
    salsa lesson and was
    immediately placed in the
    intermediate class!

Amanda soon absorbed herself in the London salsa scene
and sticking to her south London roots was a regular
down at the Mambo Inn and Bar Lorca on Brixton Road,
later gravitating up to the West End - Havana in Hanover
Square becoming a regular Monday night haunt.

In 2004 Homero González, London’s original Cuban dance
master, approached Amanda and invited her to become a
member of his Cuban dance troupe and she dived into a
world she grew to love – the spectacular cosmos of Afro-
Cuban dance. Still dancing with Salsa Cubana to this day,
Amanda regularly performs at the renowned Floridita and
Carnival De Cuba as well as many other clubs, events
and functions.

Anyone who’s seen Amanda’s breathtaking style and
sabor on the dance floor will understand why this is one
element she’s keen to transmit to her female students,
knowing full well that a sense of style and feeling in their
body movement helps women to build their confidence
and enjoy dancing even more.

Amanda’s also a stunning reggaeton dancer, having
danced at many events and concerts, including with
artists Leximan at the Don Omar concert and MC Magico  
at the Jazz Cafe and Carnival De Cuba.

Amanda currently teaches at  Stone Bar Salsa, our weekly
Cuban special in the heart of Honor Oak Park.
