[Bachata & Zouk]
My first ambition to start dancing began with my love for music. After ten years of playing musical instruments, playing Trumpet in a Jazz band, and playing piano that was self-taught since the age of 10, I wanted to extend my love for music by getting involved in social dancing.
I started taking professional dance lessons at Dennis Pasamba Dance Company in Chicago. With my natural abilities to pick up music, I quickly advanced in my dance classes.
In 2010, I finally made the decision to take my skills to the next level by joining my first performance group with Dennis. During that time, I was introduced to Bachata which instantly became my new found love.
Since then, I’ve performed with the Bachata Allstars on many stages in over 3 different countries and now direct one of the fastest growing teams in Chicago, Alma Chicago Bachata".. My love for music shows as I advance and improve. I continue to progress with my passion for music and my enthusiasm in becoming one of the most recognized dancers in Chicago.
