Salsa Guru is how people more commonly know Kaytee Namgyal. He happens to be the founder of Salsa India, now the biggest Salsa school in India with various studios across Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata. Kaytees missionary zeal to convert everyone to salseros and to spread Salsa across India, has had amazing results, having seen more than 5000 enthusiastic students meet, greet and fall in love with Salsa.
Kaytee, the heart and soul of Salsa India, is a perfectionist, laying great emphasis on technique and also on attitude and interpretation of the music. He calls his unique style Karma-Salsa. Why? Because Karma is Kaytees real name. Karma-Salsa as Kaytee likes to say, focuses on musicality, body movement and dancing through ones body, mind and soul, in a dancers interpretation and representation of the instruments being played and feel of the music. As each dancer has his or her own personality, so is Karma-Salsa synonymous with Kaytees panache and energetic yet fluid style. Kaytee has studied with some of the best teachers in the world Eddie Torres, Frankie Martinez, Edie-The Salsa Freak, Super Mario, Al Liquid Silver Espinoza, Luis Vasquez etc. He has had the opportunity to learn the Cuban, New York and L.A. styles of salsa and see different styles of salsa which he likes to merge in his way of Dancing. He has taught as an instructor in several Salsa Festivals and Countries across the World, including Berlin, China, Denver, Colorado, USA, Dubai, Greece, Australia, Prague, Qatar, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand etc. Kaytee was also a Judge at the China Open Salsa Championship and the Asian Salsa Championship.
Kaytees missionary zeal to convert everyone to Salseros and to spread Salsa across India, has had amazing results. Salsa India has helped to popularize Salsa through a number of classes and workshops in other Indian cities like Goa, Punjab, Bangalore, Sikkim, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkota, Pune and Indore and has also reached enthusiasts outside India in US, China, Nepal, Hong Kong, Dubai, Kuwait and Thailand and many more. Salsa is now flourishing in India, as it has around the World. Kaytee is now planning to expand Salsa Indias repertoire to incorporate multiple dance forms and cultures that complement Salsa and the Salseros passion and commitment.
