In September 2005 Ricardo Sousa and Paula Loureiro started a joint project with the name of Afrolatin Connection®. This initial project derived the Dance School Afrolatin Connection®, now called ALC Dance Studios.

In terms of dance and their aggregate terms, our teaching method is based on the structure of the different steps at different levels of learning, so that teaching is carried out in a progressive, objective and consistent manner.

In terms of the structure of classes, they have an extremely varied nature with specific activities directly related to the objectives of the class, always looking for the student to learn as much as possible in a relaxed manner, effective and fun.

The dance school, while having established roots in Porto, moved to Vila Nova de Gaia in September 2010, where he is currently based - ALC Dance Gaia. In 2015, celebrating 10 years of existence, the ALC Dance Studios, expands the number of schools taking dance to more people. The year began with the opening of the ALC Dance Braga in the Minho capital and ended with the opening of the ALC Dance Porto Baixa, city where it all began.
