About Rhythm & Vibes Dance Company
Rhythm & Vibes Dance Company (formerly Dsantos Dance UK) was established in 2015 by director & principal dancer Richard Voogt. It is a dance school based in London, UK, hosting regular weekly classes and parties in the styles of Salsa, Kizomba, Bachata & Semba. In 2020 our dance company was recognized for its cultural importance by the Arts Council of England and awarded a Cultural Recovery Fund grant to support our continued success.
We strive to create a festive atmosphere at every event, celebrating great music and culture in the way we know best….dance, dance & more dance! Through fun yet professional classes we create a space that unites an eclectic mix of people to converse and socialize with ease. Whether people come to just try something new or wish to carve out a career in dance, we welcome everyone with the same passion & enthusiasm.
From Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha and Merengue to Kizomba, Semba, Kuduro and Afrohouse, we love it all and are excited to continue to raise the profile of these social dances. We are driven by the wider goals of promoting community health, development and unity as well as contributing to cultural awareness, above and beyond the joys of dancing.
Rhythm & Vibes Dance is nationally & internationally recognized.
In 2020, we had the great honour of being recognized by the Arts Council of England for our integral contribution to the cultural sector and were awarded a Cultural Recovery grant to support our continued success. With over 4000 members of the public participating in our classes & events, Rhythm & Vibes Dance Company has quickly grown into one of the premier Afro-Latin dance schools in the UK. We are proud to provide an inclusive space, celebrating cultural diversity and fostering community cohesion through dance. As principal artistic director and dancer, Richard Voogt, has been commissioned to regularly give workshops and performances overseas at leading conventions in our field of dance.
