Eddie Hunt teaches Salsa every Wednesday at Ardour Academy.

Here is a little about him:

“In my mind I was born in 2003 when I discovered the world of salsa.

After travelling around both England and Europe experiencing different dance styles and a variety of salsa teachers, I started my own salsa night as part of Abanico Salsa.

Both my dance and teaching styles are based around having fun and a clear understanding of good leading and following techniques. I am continually trying to refine and improve this, to ensure the students get the most out of each lesson and dance.

Something you may not know about me:

I used to be a football official and officiated at national/conference league level. (One level below professional football).”

“Contemporary with Mike has been really beneficial to my wellbeing and getting to feel grounded. “I’ve enjoyed the challenge of moving my body with purpose in a safe space with others, free of judgement of ability and experience.

Butterfly Soup sessions have been meditative and calming. I particularly enjoy the expressing of our stories through body language, allowing us to build connection within ourselves and between other Queer humans.” – Mica, on Monday classes
