Star Latino’s Dance Academy

Newly opened Star Latino’s Dance Academy aims to become Sri Lanka’s premier Salsa and Latin American Dance institute. The academy was founded by three leading entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka; Achala Gamage, Nishan Rajakaruna and Pradeep Jayasinghe.

The academy’s lead dance instructor is Kasun Dias who has been training dancers since 2012 along with Anastasia April.

Courses are conducted at the Movenpick Hotel in Colombo. Star Latino’s have won over 60 competitive dance medals and from 2016 to 2019, they have won more than 80 percent of Street Latin medals. Kasun is not only Asia’s 1st Alma Latina certified salsa bachata Instructor, but is also Sri Lanka’s first Nelson Campos certified Kizomba Instructor and Asia’s first level 5 Kizomba Instructor.

“We have plans to open three more Latin Dance training centres across the country and strategic partnerships with leading corporates whereby classes can be offered as an incentive while cross promotional activities can be done through the Academy and within the Club,” said Achala Gamage.
