Meet your director
Starting in the high school gym with salsa moves, bachata beats, and the lively energy of bomba y plena, Christian Guerrero got hooked on the Afro-Latin groove. That love took him straight to Island Touch Chicago, learning some slick moves from Kimberly Rivera, and diving headfirst into Chicago’s Afro Latin dance scene.
Wanting more, he found himself at Dance Center Chicago, learning with Jesus Aguilera and perfecting his flow at Mixed Motion Art with Del Dominguez. Before long, he was dancing with the La Mecca Chicago crew, soaking up dance wisdom from Laura Flores. Now, he’s back at Mayambo, united with Del once again. Over the past six years, he’s really dug into dancing on2, mastering those smooth shines and footwork. And just for some extra flair, he throws in vibes from Pachanga, Afro-Latin, and Traditional Bachata.
While he’s always on the lookout to learn more, Christian’s also been spreading the dance love, teaching moves to others for the past two years. Today, whether he’s hitting the dance floor or sharing his passion, Christian Guerrero is all about that dance life.
