MEET THE FOUNDERS
Born and raised in Santiago de Chile, rhythms such as bolero, son, danzon and cumbia were the staples of Rodolfo’s childhood. In his teens, Rodolfo devoted himself to Hapkido, a Korean martial art, but at the end of the ‘90s, as the salsa craze was sweeping South America, he realized he could turn his childhood passion for dance into a profession and found his true vocation as a dancer, performer and choreographer. Rodolfo introduced Mambo or ‘on2’ and cross-body style salsa to Chile before departing for Europe in 2008. Professionally, he has performed and instructed across Europe since his arrival. Rodolfo is also a certified personal trainer with a deep understanding of the body’s role in not only physical, but also mental well-being.
Born and raised in South Africa, Kai found her love for dance at the age of 4 in a ballet class. She was trained in classical ballet, modern and tap dance for over 15 years. After graduating high school, Kai became a soloist with Break-Thru Dance Company. During her 3,5 years with BTDC, Kai became well versed in various dance styles including afro-contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, and also began to explore her own creativity. In 2010 Kai became a top 10 finalist on the hit television series “So You Think You Can Dance?” South Africa, where she appeared on national television. In 2014, Kai made the move to Europe and after meeting Rodolfo in 2017, she made a stylistic shift towards Afro-latin dance. As a South African, Kai feels deeply connected to African movement and rhythms. She has a degree in design and is a certified bodywork practitioner, bringing her somatic knowledge into her dancing and teaching practices.
