Miguel & Rianne met in the spring of 2014 in the Amsterdam salsa dance scene. They were introduced by a mutual friend. They noticed immediately that they have the same vision of dance in general, and of choreographing shows, so they hit the dance studio and started making their first show.

They place great value on personality and individuality and this always plays a huge role in their classes, workshops and performances.
Miguel Arduin discovered Latin dance in 2009. He was intrigued by the rhythms and percussion in the Afro-latin/ Caribbean music. With zero dance experience, he started dancing at the salsa school founded by his uncle. Miguel was eager to learn as much as possible about this art form. He dedicated a lot of time and energy searching for important essentials of Latin dance. On his journey the attraction towards salsa on2 became stronger than ever. This style has a great range of expressions and interpretations and he used this to create his own style. Soon he was asked to teach classes for multiple salsa dance schools in the Netherlands.
Playing and understanding the instruments within the Afro-latin/ Caribbean music has always been a dream and is gradually becoming reality. He has started playing various instruments including the conga.
Rianne Foekema attended to Lucia Marthas, school of performing arts and graduated as a professional dancer and dance teacher.
She has been working as a freelance dancer and teacher for over 17 years now, mainly in the commercial field after finishing school. Dancing and teaching styles like hip hop, female hip hop, contemporary and jazz.
She started to dance salsa in 2011 because of her love for different dance styles and was immediately hooked for life!
The thing that makes her love salsa so much is the "being in the moment" part when dancing social and creating her own style. What intrigues her about this is that this is a process that never stops.
