Interview mit
Tropical Gem
Salsa-Stuttgart.com : What is your impression of Germany ? And compared to Italy ?
Tropical Gem : Well, speaking about Salsa I have to say that there is a lot of movement in Germany. I have had experiences in Berlin and Munich and there is a lot of movement. Compared to Italy I have to say that Italy is more ahead, the movement is much bigger. Maybe I’m wrong. But i think there is more dancing ...

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : Are you talking about quantity or quality ?
Tropical Gem : Well, I couldn’t say anything about the quality , but concerning the quantity I think it is quite bigger in Italy. For example only in Milan, and I mean the centre of Milan, there are about 10 Clubs.

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : When did you start as a group ?
Tropical Gem : We have been together for 3 years now. In 2 weeks it will be 3 years. Me and Fernando worked earlier in a group with only male Cubans and after we left that group we founded Tropical Gem.

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : Your favourite city in the world talking about Salsa ?
Tropical Gem : Well I think this would be New York. Because you have the chance to study so much there. But my favourite city for dancing myself and having fun is definitely Puerto Rico.

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : Talking about learning Salsa, which teachers/ dancers have influenced you most ?
Tropical Gem : Well the most influence on us had a teacher from Milan. His name is Valdez. He is a Cuban dancer. But also Felipe Polanco (names 2 or three more) . We take lessons from a lot of people.

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : Your favourite dancer / group ?
Tropical Gem : Talking about dancers I like to watch ... Actually my partner ! I can stand there and watch him for hours... But also Frankie Martinez and Francisco Vasquez.

Salsa-Stuttgart.com : Anything you want to say to your German fans ?
Tropical Gem : Learn ! Learn a lot ! And not just from one teacher ! But from many. Dance , dance on the 1, on the 2, on the 3, dance ! There is always something to learn.
