Ivan has grown up with the Latin rhythms playing at home but started dancing salsa and took his first classes in 2008 at Danscenter in Stockholm where he alternated between salsa and breakdancing or street dancing. Ivan appreciated the freedom and playfulness of salsa and the ability of dance to bring people together. During a study year in London he danced salsa with SuperMario and when he returned to Stockholm he was a frequent guest at Stockholm’s Salsa chop. During a trip to New York in 2011, bachata stole Ivan’s heart. He was captivated by the dancers ability to play with the music and has since burned to become a top bachata dancer and spread the joy of bachata and dance to everyone he comes into contact with as a dancer or teacher. He has been teaching in different parts of Sweden and also abroad and numerous international festivals. He is one of the few certified Bachata Sensual instructors in Sweden!
