I am from Panama City, Panama. Dancing is a part of my country's culture. I have been dancing practically my whole life, developing a passion for dance at a very young age. I decided to become a professional dancer in 2004. While I enjoyed the job I had as an accountant, pursuing my passion for dance has opened a door to a world of creativity. Soon after after my career change, I founded a dance team in Panama, which I also directed and choreographed. We performed throughout Panama and Puerto Rico each year until I moved to Los Angeles. I chose to move to Los Angeles in 2008, where my career as a professional dancer has taken on a whole new dimension. I have had the honor to dance with world renowned dancers such as Josie Neglia and Frances Nieves. I also recently founded another dance team in Los Angeles called BEAT Dance Company, a semi-pro team that is continuously expanding. I will soon be starting an amateur team here in LA as well. Most recently, in November 2010, I competed in a competition for Best Male Solo Salsa Dancer in L.A. and placed 4th. I performed and competed internationally at many Salsa and Bachata congresses in in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, Las Vegas, Venezuela and Puerto Rico. I also perform at Hollywood events and other private parties. I have had the opportunity to dance for many artists including Marc Anthony, Aventura, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Gilberto Santa Rosa and Andy Montanez. I generally perform Salsa, Bachata and Hustle and sometimes incorporate other genres of dance such as jazz, contemporary, tango and hip-hop.
