Richard Voogt, Director & Instructor

Richard Voogt is the founder & director of Dsantos Dance UK. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, Richard is a trained Biochemist (MSc) but discovered social dancing while living in the UK. In the summer of 2007 he started participating in the latin genres of Salsa & Bachata, immediately captivated by the welcoming nature of the dance community. After moving to North America he was introduced to the African rhythms of Kizomba, Semba & Afrohouse/Kuduro in 2010 by world famous dancer & Choreographer Manuel Dos Santos (Dr. Kizomba). Richard trained and performed with Manuel Dos Santos as part of Kizomba Canada, before returning to the UK in 2015 to set up his own school Dsantos Dance UK. Richard continues to host regular weekly classes & parties, as well as traveling nationally and internationally to teach and perform at some of the biggest dance events around the world.

Manon Batrel, from Brest France, started dancing as a child in various forms including Ballet and African dance. At the age of 15 years old Manon started to learn Kizomba and later Bachata and Salsa. Manon started teaching over 3 years ago, specifically focussing on the ladies role in partner dancing, their technique and styling. In 2017 Manon moved to London where she joined Dsantos Dance UK as Richard Voogtโ€™s dance partner, and as an instructor. Richard & Manon now teach and perform together in the Dsantos Dance UK weekly classes and at dance festivals all over the world.
