Grew up in Ecuador, Nicaragua and partly in Cuba, Anichi Perez early came into contact with the infectious rhythms of Latin America.
At the age of 12 he first visited a ballet and salsa school, which was led by a Cuban. He discovered his talent and promoted him until Anichi at the age of 18 years moved to Germany with his family (his father is from Germany, and his mother from Ecuador).
Here he not just met his dancing partner, Anne, but also a slightly different style of dancing. Through a lot of training, discipline, and numerous educational trips to Cuba, New York, Puerto Rico and Milan, Anne and Anichi worked their way up from the local heroes of Freiburg, to the European title in 2007, right up to world class with its recently Vice World Champion title in Miami 2009th
His expertise, his natural charisma and his unconditional love for salsa, let Anichi become a very popular salsa teacher. See for yourself at: AYA Latin Dance Academy.
