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
Hiromi is a Latinva Dance Fitness instructor and a classical Japanese dancer. She enjoys every moment of Latinva and squeezes in her passion for dance within a busy schedule with her daughter Elena, one of the cast of the Emmy Award winning A&E “Born this Way”, a reality show featuring 7 young adults with Down Syndrome. It follows the lives of a diverse cast of stars as they work to overcome challenges and achieve various life goals. Season 3 will be aired in early 2017. Check out aetv.com/shows/born-this-way, or Facebook page “Born this Way on A&E”.
“Although I love spending time with Elena, sometimes it is exhausting dealing with her life. Latinva is like a therapy to me, always giving me freedom, energy and mental & physical health, so that I can shine just like my lovely Elena!!” said Hiromi.
Having been asked the question, “how has Latinva changed my life?”, it prompted me to answer back, “how hasn’t it?!” I started my Latinva journey almost 11 years ago and I haven’t missed a day dancing since. I stepped onto that gym dance floor and I stepped into a new chapter of my life. I can honestly say that I have never been happier. I am in better shape than I have ever been, not only physically but mentally and spiritually. Latinva has pushed me to go beyond my boundaries. It has taken me out of my comfort zone and I feel alive. Above all of that…as you see in my photos below, it has brought me the best gift I could ever ask for…relationships and connection with people of all ages, backgrounds and even countries! My heart is full with the joy of dance and the love for the dedicated students/friends who have come to me through … The Dance! This journey was not meant to be walked (danced) alone…
