This retreat is for people who are looking for a detailed course of training and are interested in working on the finer points of dance often overlooked in classes. It is about learning the how, not the what, in dance. And most of all, it is for people looking for a break from life and personal reflection.
We have dancers of all skill levels and ages who attend. However, all attendees of the retreat must know the basics of Salsa On 2 (timing, cross body lead, inside turn, outside turn). All these moves can be found in our online studio at www.Masacote.TV. Women are welcome to attend as leaders as long as they can adequately lead these basic steps.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
Ana “Masacote” Tinajero, an international ambassador of Latin dance and music, has more than 20 years of experience as an instructor, dancer, and choreographer. She has loved dancing since childhood, and she began her formal dance training with folkloric dance at age 5 and Salsa at age 15.
Ana was profiled in La Voz del Mambo Magazine as “The Future of Mambo,” in Cuerpo Magazine, and the Dallas Morning Newspaper; she has been a judge and guest of honor at salsa competitions and festivals worldwide. She believes that through dance, we can break down cultural barriers while we learn to better understand ourselves, and each other. View Full Bio…

Angeline continued her training with belly dance, modern/contemporary, hip-hop, salsa, samba, ballroom, capoeira and aerial dancing. She moved to Boston in 2008, where she won various ballroom competitions and received a teacher-training diploma from Extreme Dancesport Academy. Angeline began salsa training at the Hacha y Machete Company in 2011 and has been performing professionally and teaching dance since then.

Mori Granot began dancing Israeli folk, jazz, modern and ballet at a very young age in her native Haifa, Israel. She started salsa in 1999 with Cuban and LA Styles and later developed a passion for NY Style On 2 when she arrived to the US in 2006. She began teaching and performing a few years later and founded Rhode Island Latin Dance while also directing the Brown University Salsa Club.
Always striving to improve as a dancer, Mori’s professional dance development led her to train with Masacote Dance Company in 2011 at the Masacote Salsa Retreats. She has since continued her studies and research in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and is now the Co-Director and Co-Choreographer of Masacote’s MASA2 Professional-Track Company. Mori believes that life is a never-ending cycle of lessons and that each day should be lived to better one’s self.
