My favorite local dancers are Roberto Lay, Kane Kong, Jay “Blaxican” Reeves, Arturo Garcia, Jose “El Fluffy Salsero” Hernandez, and Michael Felix among many others… ?

Favorite DFW Socials/Places to Dance?

Pura Dallas & Ft. Worth, Stratos, Al-Amir (Arlington), Los Comales, Los Lupes and Blue Mesa.

Dance Pet Peeves? (Hygiene, No connection, People who teach while dancing, etc)

When a guy dancer gets carried away and tries to look good but forgets that connection and being on beat is a must.

Favorite Dance Moment? (Performance, funny moment, etc)

My favorite dance moment was when I got to travel to the Los Angeles Summer Bachata Festival (2016) and  perform with my dance director Roberto Lay. It was very special to have a solo performance and have some of the best dancers as our audience.

Favorites Dance Genre?

I love Salsa, but l have to say I am passionate about Bachata and it is my absolute favorite.

What dance movie title describes your attitude while dancing? Why?

The movie title that describes my attitude while dancing has to be Dance till Dawn. Once I hit the dance floor adrenaline and good energy kicks in and I could just dance for hours!

Favorite dance video you’d like to share?

This is my favorite dance video for three reasons: 1. One of my favorite songs “Te Vas” 2. My favorite group “Grupo Extra” 3. Danced by my favorite Bachata couple: Jorge “Ataca” Burgos and Tanja “La Alemana” Kensinger.
