Carlos was born in the Dominican Republic. He started dancing at the age of 15 with the National Ballet of DR and discovered a passion for dance and music which continued to develop in various pathways throughout his life. In 2007, Carlos moved to Canada, became a Zumba instructor and shortly after that, a Zumba Jammer. His dedication to fitness and love of dance has made him a natural fit for Zumba and has given him the opportunity to share his passion for both. “Dance is a form of art that is expressed through the body.” (El Bachatu)
During his professional career, Carlos has taught Jam Sessions all over Canada and the U.S. as well as France, Israel, Korea and Singapore. He has had the pleasure to work with artists such as Celia Cruz, Juan Luis Guerra, Shakira, Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Mark Anthony, Paulina Rubio, Vanilla Ice and Lil Jon, as well as Beto Perez, Creator of the Zumba Fitness Program. He has been a session presenter at the Orlando Zumba Fitness Convention annually since 2013 and represented Canada as an on-stage dancer at the 2012 Convention Fitness Concert in Orlando and the 2013 Convention in LA.
