About Deakocan

Deakocan Dance, was born in London in 2009, it was created by Osbanis Tejeda & Anneta Kepka by merging their talent, experience & passion for the dance & the music. The name Deakocan Dance has a deeper meaning, and it is more than it meets an eye, in Yoruba, the Afrocuban language, ‘deakokan’, means ‘de a corazon’ – from the heart. They thought that this name perfectly describes what is the most important for them in teaching, choreographing and performing, it is to feel everything you experience in music and dance, and to dance from the heart. Deakocan Dance school became the foundation, of now growing Deakocan family with popular Deakocan Bootcamps in London, special Deakocan Dream dance holidays in Cuba and the latest project of opening the Deakocan Dance school in Cuba, Havana.

Osbanis and Anneta are London based internationally renowned artists, teachers, choreographers & performers. They share between them World and UK Champion titles. Osbanis and Anneta’s fresh and unique dance style perfectly characterizes the fusion of Cuban dance. Their focus is on the importance of musical interpretation, in addition to incorporating Rumba & Afrocuban movement to Casino. Osbanis and Anneta teach and perform all around the world, featuring 6 continents and over 40 countries, as well as at their ever-popular regular classes in London.

Their aim to share their love of Cuban dance and inspire dancers to always dance from the heart. Their infectiously passionate personalities and warm hearts make every class with them enjoyable, meaningful, very inspiring and will definitely leave you hungry for more! Their personalities perfectly complement each other and this is evident on the dancefloor.
