Mirko Abbracciavento discovered the world of Salsa in 1999 for the very first time. He literally fell in love with it! Since the music and this wonderful dancing style attracted him so much, he started attending all the courses in his town, moving forward to any other city in his region and ended up going around the whole of Italy.
