Rodrigo Cortazar


Rodrigo’s larger than life musicality and inhumane artistry make him one of the few salsa artists in the world that just have it all. Also, his natural charisma is just contagious, impossible to resist and makes his dance even more fascinating on top of the spectacular artist he already is. Rodrigo is a specialist in NY Salsa, Cha Cha, Pachanga, Boogaloo, Bomba, Plena, Rumba, Mambo and Son Montuno. Don’t miss his workshops for a world. And don’t miss his performance for the world. And don’t miss… You got it.
