VINAY

Teacher

“Dancers don't need wings to fly.”

Vinay Kapoor harbours over 6 years of experience in Latin dancing. His journey in dance began as a child, trying various dance forms including Bollywood and breakdancing. He then entered the exotic world of Salsa, Bachata and Jive in 2013. As he explored further, he found his true calling in Sensual Bachata.

A wanderer at heart - he has travelled to Spain, France, Germany, Dubai and Italy to intricately explore Sensual Bachata. He has learned and shared his knowledge with a vast community of dancers. After working as a dance instructor at various places, he established his own dance academy in Mumbai in 2018.

In 2019, he moved to the UK, is currently pursuing his Masters in Performance Practices, and feels absolutely thrilled to be a part of LTP!

GABRIEL

Teacher

He started dancing in 2015 in Brasov, Romania (his hometown) where he built the foundation of Salsa and dominican bachata. In 2016 he moved to UK building up his Salsa knowledge around Coventry and participated in various Salsa shown with the local team.

At some point in the summer of 2016 Sol "told him off" that he dances to much dominican and moderna in a bachata competition (most songs were quite sensual - oops), since then he decided to learn more Sensual Bachata. In the end this opened up his eyes towards Bachata fusion also which is his favorite style.

Due to his travels and his mentality for variety he gathered knowledge from a lot of different "big name" couples from which he has been able to understand the leading,following and the musicality better.

BLAIR

Teacher

Blair has been part of the LTP family and dancing Bachata for 3 years. Without a dancing background or any previous dance experience, he was able to seamlessly pick bachata up in no time at all. His love for bachata lives in dancing Bachata Sensual. His passion for Bachata Sensual lays in the detail; the technique of the movements, the flow of the dance, interpretation of the music and the connection with his partner. Dancing Bachata is definitely a passion he never knew he had.

He enjoys learning new concepts and understanding how to manipulate them to allow for a more unique experience on the dance floor. Blair also actively travels through europe to learn from some of the best teachers Bachata Sensual has to offer, this allows him to blend and develop a style between what he has learned both abroad and with UK powerhouse - Sol and Lau at LTP.
