About Us

Cubanisimo Oxford was born by Doreen and Bertram’s love of dancing. After going to salsa lessons in Oxford together, their passion to learn more lead to a trip to Cuba in 2003 where they met Ariel, a professor of dance from Havana. Together they started authentic Cuban dance lessons and monthly events back in Oxford.

These lesson still run every Thursday with social dances on the first Saturday every month, all out of the East Oxford Conservative Club.

The Cubanisimo Oxford community has built over the years with help from many people. The team Bertram, Neil and Fabhiola will ensure you enjoy your dancing journey.

Our aim at Cubanisimo is to teach you Cuban style salsa, and above all to inspire you to have fun and enjoy dancing, whether or not you’ve danced before. We look forward to your support!
