Mailevis Ortega Fernandez

Mailevis was born and trained in Havana, Cuba, covering all traditional Cuban styles such as son, danzon, folkloric styles and of course casino and rueda. She’s been a dancer her entire life and early on developed a deep love for the art form. 

Mailevis has worked at some of Cuba’s most famous cabarets (dance shows) before going solo and eventually moving to Riga. At LatinWeekend 2019 she will teach casino, rueda, rumba and more together with Hansel. Together with Hansel she will bring the fiery Cuban spirit to Trondheim!
