About Salsa Dance Parties
Salsa Dance Parties was established in January 2006. Since then we have gone from
strength-to-strength: supplying Salsa and Swing Jive PartyEntertainment, Discos
and Children’sEntertainment at events across the South of England and the Midlands.
We have entertained at functions of all sizes: from a house party of fifteen guests,
to a Dinner and Dance for over two hundred.
My name is Philippe Retourne. I took up Salsa dancing in 1998 and started teaching
in 2002. I’ve taken lessons from many teachers over the years,learning different
styles and techniques. It’s from this foundation that I’ve developed my own methodical,
good humoured style of teaching. I love entertaining people, and seeing them happy
and enjoying themselves.
An Entertainer by nature
I launched Salsa Danced Parties, after entertaining at parties for friends and their
children; where it was suggested that I provide the same service for others. Very
soon I recognised the need to supply an all-in-one entertainment package. This led
me to creating a Mobile Disco and building up a huge library of music to suit all
tastes and ages.
For many years I have been a sound engineer: installing and operating audio-visual
systems, and able to service and maintain my own equipment.
I sing, and play several musical instruments including, guitar, saxophone and ukulele;
as well as composing music and writing songs.
I have a CRB certificate and Public Liability Insurance. All my equipment is PAT
My motto in life is; ‘Everything with enthusiasm!’
