The dance academy located in one of the cities of the lively cultural scene of Netherlands offers a personalized system that implements the triple technique of the current educational system for quality learning
The SalsaBrisa academy is oriented to direct Afro-Caribbean dance classes using the triple technique of the educational system: visual, auditory, and kinetic to help the easy learning of this Latin rhythm and achieve a happier life with physical and mental well-being.Naomi Dongelmans and her partner Khalid Lazar of Moroccan origin founded the dance school in early 2000 to help society find a new lifestyle. Since 2006, the creators of the world-renowned Limburg Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival have enjoyed great success and rising popularity in the Netherlands.
Dongelmans, a medical professional, realized with her experience that dance helps people cope with many afflictions such as depression, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes. Working in parallel with her life partner and chef Khalid, she managed to show that through continuous dance movements that produce endorphins, people who fight against mental disorders become happier, as well as the elderly, including women and men of 90 years old enjoy a better quality of life with superior mobility, significantly younger attitudes, and interact much better with the rest of their dance friends.
For this great contribution of fun combined with quality lessons, SalsaBrisa has been recognized with the Bedrijven Awards for Excellence In Business (2012 & 2013) and Freelancer of the Year in 2014 and 2015.
Currently, in Maastricht, a university city in the far south of the Netherlands, many people enjoy the La Mulata dance school of the SalsaBrisa academy which offers a diverse schedule of lessons in different styles and levels, as well as events for everyone with an atmosphere relaxed and calm with the team of teachers composed of Khalid, Naomi, James, Marcos, Simone, and Floor, who will make sure that you shine in dance, and will teach you with the personalized learning style that brings together the combination of cognitive, affective, and psychological factors, a mayor development with which you will interact with new people, you will get in shape, and you will become healthier and happier.
