THE FOUNDER

I am Mexican born, God believer, Jesus follower, Salsa dance educator and dancer, as well as Fedora hat and Clothing designer, youth mentor at the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC), besides that I like to cook and serve at Crossover Church in any capacity possible.

I have been dancing since I was 5 years old in family parties and school events.  I also, started learning the art of handcrafted at a young age. I love sports; my favorites are volleyball, soccer and basketball.

After I immigrated to the US in my late teens I started working in the hospitality industry for a few years before discovering Salsa Dance .  After I started learning the art of Salsa Dance a well known company in Baltimore, MD offered me a position as an instructor Apprentice becoming later the Male Lead Instructor.  The experience I have teaching is in Dance Congresses, Festivals, Churches, Schools, Private Parties, Non-Profit events, just to mention a few.

After moving to the Tampa area, a former student invited me to attend a Service at Crossover Church, after that I started a relationship with Jesus getting baptized and using the talents God gave me thru the years to help others.

The vision and purpose God placed in me, the work ethics from my parents, the skills learned throughout  the years such as, Fedora Hat designer,  the love for salsa dance, and the desire to help and serve others along with the Love and Support of my Church family encouraged me to create "Hope 2 Dance" and the rest will be history, Gods history.

Thank you God!
