Mina has dancing in her blood.  She began her dancing career in Istanbul, Turkey, at the tender age of three.  Starting with Turkish Folkloric dance and Belly dancing, she continued over the years with Modern dance, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Ballet and various Latin dances including Cha Cha Cha , Samba, Lambada, Mambo, Merengue, Cumbia, Boogaloo, Pachanga and, of course,SALSA.

She has over 20 years teaching experience and, as far as she is aware, was one of the first people to start teaching Salsa in the UK, especially London, in the format that most of us are familiar with now and is probably the only teacher in the U.K. that is able to teach and choreograph an exciting and fun mix of all the Salsa styles (Cali, Colombian, Cuban, Puerto Rican & Cross Body) with her unique techniques.

Mina always welcomes old, new and current students with a very friendly attitude, and wishes to continue dancing and teaching Salsa for many years to come.

Scintillatingly Sassy Salsa


She was one of the first (lady) teachers to give footwork and body styling classes, to both men and women.

From time to time, she trains some of her students, with her unique fun-filled choreographies, to enter competitions and shows.  In the past, four of her students have become UK and World amateur Salsa champions.  She is always looking out for new ‘talent’ to train to win future competitions.

In 2009, she was the only UK based teacher to be invited to perform a special show on stage at the Cali World Salsa Festival, Colombia, by its organizers.  She loves dancing and teaching, and always endeavours to make her classes very good fun for her students and an excellent social event.

In addition, she organizes periodic Salsa Parties, Workshops and gives lessons (private and public) at birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, festivals, her regular Salsa classes and at other celebratory occasions.  She is also often asked by other Salsa organizations to teach as a Guest Teacher.
