Introduction
Hebert Aguilar has been dancing ever since he can remember. He was inspired to learn Latin Dance from his parents dancing at family parties. He starting teaching Salsa, Latin, and Ballroom when he was in high school at Diablo Valley College and other venues in the Bay Area. When he went to college, he expanded himself with other dances such as Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Break dancing, Popping, Tutting, Waltz, Bachata, Mambo, Rumba, ChaChaCha, East coast swing, and more. He found one of his many passions and love for Cuban salsa known as Casino, Cuban Rumba Folklore, and Rueda De Casino, where you dance with multiple couples in a circle and you are constantly switching partners with fun and intriguing moves! He’s definitely considered one of the top heavy weight dancers in the Bay Area with over a decade of experience performing, competing and teaching at many different locations, venues, and festivals in San Francisco, Portland, Vancouver Washington, San Carlos, Palo Alto, Miami, Hawaii, Texas, and more! He is bringing the heat to the dance floor to show everyone his drive and passion for dance while incorporating his own fusion of different styles of dances adding a unique "Flavor" and "Style" to his Choreographies and Classes. Don't be shy to ask him for a dance if you see him social dancing, he is more than happy to dance with you in or outside of class. Hope you enjoy the intense energy he brings to the dance floor because he will make sure you leave with that energy as well. “Dancing has brought such extreme happiness, inspiration, and positivity to my life that I want to share it to the whole world! I love seeing my students progress overtime and seeing them become passionate and confident dancers! One of my many strengths is breaking movements down to the core to make sure they understand the motion, isolation's, their body, but most importantly, to get them to build good habits/proper technique and understand the dance. It’s extremely fulfilling to see my student blossom and I can’t wait to help you achieve your goal!”

He was AMAZING!! The SWEETEST instructor you'll have and he's on top of things!! I've been wanting to dance for a very long time, and finally got lessons to do so, and it was 100000% worth it!! He makes you feel so comfortable and he's very non-judgemental. Will definitely be back💖

Just completed a simple dance course for the first dance for our wedding and Hebert was amazing. Could not be happier! Great choreography, identifies moves that are right for your liking and skill level. Friendly, skillful and very supportive in every class. Hebert reached out quickly and was able to work with us on short notice. Highly recommend even if your are a little distance away, he’s worth it! We can’t wait for our families to see!
