Born in Havana, Cuba, Nelson began dancing at an early age. Upon his arrival in England in 1988 he became actively involved in promoting and organising Latin dance and music activities. Nelson became the first Salsa dance instructor in London, to high acclaim. As a result, he extended his classes to venues all over the country, thus establishing himself as the top Salsa dance teacher in the UK. Nelson has since been deemed the original ‘Godfather of Salsa’ in the UK, in recognition of his expertise and proficiency in dance and musical interpretation. Many of Nelson’s students have since progressed to dance professionally and to teach Salsa themselves.
Nelson continues to contribute to the current thriving Salsa scene by teaching Salsa dance in many venues around London and the Home Counties and by regularly holding intensive workshops all over the country. Nelson is considered to be the leading authority within this sphere, he is also frequently called upon to act in an advisory role whenever authenticity or expert opinion is required. Most recently, after the official acknowledgement of the Salsa dance as an established dance form by the UKA (United Kingdom Alliance of teachers of dance), Nelson was appointed President of the Salsa Examining Board, within the Club Latino Division of the UKA.
