He started dancing when he was very little, always had a love for dance and a strong connection with music. He graduated in Venezuela where he did theatre performances and fitness TV shows.

His classes have great energy; his passion for dance and especially for Latin music gives him a unique style that makes people enjoy the experience! Alejandro’s dream is to spread his love for dance by bringing Salsation to the USA and Europe.
What is Salsation?
SALSATION: The word “Salsation” has been taken from (Salsa & Sensation).
SALSA: NOT from the rhythm but from the Spanish word (SALSA) that actually means “sauce”, because its a mix of different rhythms, cultures, and dance/fitness programs!
SENSATION: the program has a strong focus on the feeling of the music, the experience of the class, and the feeling of each dance.
Salsation has been inspired by different cultures, dances and also fitness programs, such as Latin Aerobics, Aerolatin, ZUMBA, Bailoterapia and many others, but the choreographies in Salsation have a very strong focus on musicality and the interaction between the teacher and the student.
