He originally joined Street Latin and was asked to join their performance team only after very short period, then started training to teach from 2003 at Street Latin (Cuban Style) and is also quailified from the 'Salsa Masters Teacher Training Programme' in NY style which he learnt directly from Oliver Pineda (world champion many times over) in 2005 which is still the basis for the current Syllabus at Salsa Latina today. Reuben has had teacher & Syllabus training includling Jamie Jesus & Lil Liz (LDA Australia) & Edwin Rivera (NY-USA / Puerto Rico), Troy (USA) & in 2013 Masters workshops in Spain and more recently Bircan Tulga (UK). On top of this he's attended many professional, judging & teaching seminars, one on one lessons with International Instructors, some are listed below. Also certified from Mafie Zouker Masters Zouk training in 2010. Reuben Has also implemented & developed numerous dance systems from international teachers into the current system at Salsa Latina syllabus in fundamentals, shines & turn patterns and is constantly being updated, perfected & developed along side with some of the best Salsa teachers & dancers in the world.
