Today we’d like to introduce you to Johnny Latin.
Johnny is the founder and creator of Latinva Dance Fitness. He is a talented performer and gifted teacher who came to the United States after a long and successful career in Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil. His sensational dance routines are exciting and exhilarating while being technically exact and challenging. Prior to launching his career as a group dance instructor, Johnny was the captain of a soccer team in Ecuador. While being an avid and talented soccer player, and also having a passion for dance, Johnny had to make a choice to pursue a career in soccer or follow his heart and his true passion of dance. Johnny had to follow his heart and “Dance”; this is when he developed this revolutionary dance freestyle using various classical and modern Latin dance routines.
In 2002, Johnny, traveled to America to attend the International Health and Fitness Association’s (“IDEA”) annual conference in San Diego. After the conference, Johnny decided to stay in the United States and settled in Los Angeles. A few months later, he began teaching dance routines at The Bay Clubs Sports Club/LA. In 2007, Johnny founded Latinva; a unique cardio dance experience that celebrates the beauty of Latin dance, dance rhythms that include Cha Cha, Salsa, Merengue, Tango, Bachata, and Mambo. Johnny teaches more than 15 Latinva Dance Fitness cardio workout classes each week for Equinox Clubs and Bay Clubs throughout the Los Angeles area. READ MORE
