Profile : Shahid
Shahid began his salsa journey in 2001 whilst living in London when
persuaded to attend a local salsa class and has not looked back since.
Living in London he was fortunate enough to count some of Europe's best
teachers and performers as his mentors, Super Mario, Susanna Montero,
Marchant Birch, Leon Rose, Tamambo. "I was so lucky to have these guys as my
teachers, learning from the best of the best these professionals not only
instilled in me the absolute essentials of dance but the energy, passion and
desire to go with it. This passion, energy and desire took me to travelling
to Salsa Congresses around the world to further enhance my dance
capabilities by being able to adapt to different styles and seek even more
guidance from the worlds best teachers. I have been fortunate enough to
attend congresses in Spain and Prague, the highlight of my travels being the
Los Angeles Salsa Congress where I was able to mingle, dance and learn from
the world's best. Johnny Vasquez, Edie the salsa freak, Al Espinoza and Alex
de Silva to name but a few.
It wasn't long before I was soon being asked to
teach and perform in London. The beginning of this was in 2005 where I
taught and performed for a charity event to raise money to help those that
suffered in the tragic Asian earthquake". At the end of 2006 Shahid moved
back to his hometown of Cardiff where he found that his advanced style of
dance and teaching obtained during his time away was much in demand. "I am
now fortunate enough to be in a situation where I can pass on so much of
what I have learnt in the style that I was fortunate enough to be taught in.
Breaking down moves, explaining leads, technique and the basic essentials of
timing and listening to and dancing to the music, whilst also ensuring
people don't fall into bad habits, but above all making it fun and bringing
that energy, passion and desire out of my students".
