A Quick Introduction to Artia...

Winner of numerous salsa championships and founder of the "Shines Brothers" and "New Blood" professional dance teams, Artia was born in the capital city of Tehran in Iran. He chased his dream to dance out of Iran, where dancing was only done behind closed doors. Artia has now been travelling and sharing his unique style as well as his love and passion for Latin dancing around the world. He is one of the most regarded upcoming professionals in the Australian scene and is sought after for his style, energy, teaching and social dancing all around the world. 

His most recent achievements include WINNER in the World Solo category at the 2017 World Salsa Championship in Hong Kong, 2nd place in the World Solo category at the same event in 2016, 3rd place in the World Latin Dance Cup in 2016.  He's won 1st place in the Professional Solo and Couple categories at the Salsa Solo Championships in Brisbane several times over, and remains undefeated in the Pro-Am category at the Australian Latin Dance Championships.

He has studied Latin dancing and been mentored by some of Australia and world’s best, including 8 time world champion Oliver Pineda and world renown teacher choreographer and promoter Jaime Jesus Manuelian. He has also trained in ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, and jazz with Robert Sturrock and the Industry Dance Academy, and was a member of the elite “Modus Vivendi” salsa team competing in world level competitions.

Little known fact: Artia's family live in Adelaide and this event is definitely about coming home.  His first competition was at the Brisbane Salsa Solo Competition, where he represented Salsa Connection and won the national title for Amateur Male Salsa Solo, and his first Sydney Latin Festival performance was in the Salsa Connection professional team the following year.  Obviously he's since gone on to achieve great things and we are beyond proud!!
