Gregory Abouna is a dance instructor from Haiti. Having grown up in the Caribbean, Gregory is passionate about bringing a taste of his homeland and a love of Latin-Caribbean music to Darlington and the local community. Gregory has lived in France, Haiti, New York and Miami, after which he travelled extensively, arriving in the UK in 2002. He brings his love of music, dance and the Afro-Caribbean joy for life to his infectious, inclusive style of teaching and events. Gregory teaches mainly Cuban style salsa, with some cross-body style salsa moves thrown in! He is passionate about the Afro-Cuban roots of salsa and the melting pot of culture and history that make it such a rich and exciting form of music and dance.
