Dj and dance instructor with 10 years experience, Glesniel Pérez Montalvo, was born in Havana, Cuba and is a Mechanical Engineer Graduate.
From a young age, he has been passionately fanatical about both traditional and new styles of Cuban dance that are seen and enjoyed in the streets of Old Havana. Due to this enthusiasm, he was actively involved in school dance groups. From the age of 20, he participated in Rueda de Casino competitions, and he was a member of the rueda group, "Los Marqueses de la Vibora”, which performed in the recording of the video clip, "Yo vengo de Cuba” by Fclan. Before moving to Bergen, Norway in 2014, he worked as an instructor at the Cuban dance schools Casa de Maisuri and La Casa del Son in Havana, and performed at the well-known club, 1830, in addition to other popular dance venues with his dance group.
Today, Glesniel is running his own dance school in Bergen, Cuba-Norge Dans, together with his dancing partner, Karina. They have also established their own local dance festival, Minifestival Bailando, the last several years, a project that will continue in the future.
As a teacher, Glesniel has excellent pedagogy, tremendous energy, and is loved by his students. He loves social events and good fun (La Gozadera).
