Luis Armacanqui
A native of Lima, Perú, Luis Armacanqui was born and raised around the sounds of Afro-Latin music for as long as he can remember. However, it was in early 2011 that he found the determination to finally manifest his love for Salsa and Bachata dancing. In 12 immersive and constant years of traveling all over the world, Luis amassed a wealth of knowledge in the areas of musicology and functional technique. Locally, Luis has worked to develop a strong community in Madison through The Capitol Social, a dance academy and event planning/entertainment business that provides safe spaces for all to enjoy the culture of Latin dance and music.
