Marta Marthino: Co-Founder & Resident Guest Teacher

Meet The Team Comments Off on Marta Marthino: Co-Founder & Resident Guest Teacher

Marta holds a very special place in the heart of Blues Belfast. She has been a guest teacher with us since our first baby steps were taken all the way back in 2014.

So much so that we consider her as not only a member of the family but also a co-founder of Blues Belfast.

Marta is co-founder of one of the largest Blues scenes in Ireland – Downtown Blues (Dublin). Her driving force, motivation, support and of course her natural flair for Blues dancing has encouraged the development of other Blues scenes in Ireland like Blues Belfast

Downtown Blues is at the moment the most active Blues scenes on the Irish map to date with weekly beginners and improvers classes, regular workshops and a thriving social community.

While spreading the joy of Blues dancing on both a local and national level, Marta consistently works on her dancing skills and teaching techniques on a full time basis. She frequently travels across Europe to receive training from international Blues instructors from all over the world. It is for this reason that Marta’s Blues repertoire is continuously growing.

Marta continues to play an active role in the Belfast scene & pays regular visits to teach workshops in the city.
