See you in class dance lovers!


Andrada & Alberto opened their dance school Passion of Expression on 07 April 2017 following the success of their New Zealand Salsa Open Competition in 2016 when they became NZ Amateur Champions in Salsa & Bachata!

During the first year of the school being opened they competed in the New Zealand Salsa Open 2017 and were crowned NZ Professional SubChampions in Salsa & Bachata. Their students also took part in this competition and the 2 Passion of Expression Teams placing 1st in their categories. The school also entered another 7 categories and placed in all of them.

In December 2016 they competed at the World Latin Dance Cup against the best in the world and placed in the top 15 in their respective categories.

Andrada & Alberto both share the Latin heritage and their love of dancing comes naturally.

Alberto started his dancing journey in 2014 and fell in love with the dance and also with his dance partner Andrada who he met in 2016. They both started dancing together and became committed to growing their knowledge but also teaching others Salsa & Bachata.

They also share a passion for helping with charities having assisted with the Ecuador Earthquake relief fundraiser and NPH Latin America Children's' charity with various performances to raise funds and awareness for these great causes.

Passion of Expression started as a fundraising event which saw the wider community coming together and supporting these two dancers dream of representing New Zealand at the World Latin Dance Cup in Miami become a reality.


If you've always wanted to try Bachata or Salsa dancing, this is your chance. You don't need to have experience or find a partner because we work on a rotation system which means that everyone has an opportunity to dance and learn together.

Our new dance school Passion of Expression will introduce you to the basics of Bachata and Salsa, a Caribbean style of dance and then teach you a turn pattern to try out on the dance floor with a partner.

The literal meaning of Bachata; "a party, a good time" so come along with us and have a great time learning, meeting new people and having fun.

Some believe the term Salsa came about because salsa dancing and music is a mixture of different styles, just like salsa or "sauce" in Latin American countries is a mixture of different ingredients.

Spice up your moves on the dance floor every Tuesday with a Bachata Class from 8-9pm followed by Friday Salsa 8-9pm and then practice your newly acquired dance moves with us after class. Our dance school is located at Empire Studios, 2 Bond Street Grey Lynn.

You can find us on Facebook at Passion of Expression and if you have any questions send us a message and we'll be happy to help.

What are you waiting for?! Come and join in the fun with us and meet new people whilst having the best workout learning something new! 💃 Spread the word and invite your friends.

Have a great week and see you in class! :)
