Introduction: Hebert Aguilar has been dancing ever since he can remember. He was inspired by Michael Jackson to learn Hip-Hop and Latin dance by 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!”

Hebert is an amazing dance instructor! He is very professional, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable with dance styles and moves. He has his own personal dance floor set up in his place to provide the proper steps and feel needed for the big day! My husband and I had so much fun learning everything Hebert had to teach us. From Bachata to practice our wedding dance song that he edited for us. Highly recommended!

I am doing a package of 10 lessons with Hebert in preparation for my son’s wedding. He is the best, a gifted teacher and passionate about his students and dance. After six lessons I went out to a bachata night and was able to social dance thanks to the great instruction I am getting. I am really enjoying this and plan to continue.

Hebert’s just the best. My wife and I worked with him for a few months leading up to our wedding, he taught us a ton of moves and helped us to choreograph our first dance. As a person, Hebert was kind, thoughtful, attentive, friendly, really a joy to work with. As a dance instructor, the proof was in the pudding :) we came a long long way, built a ton of confidence, and had a wonderful first dance. We’re also now set up well to enjoy dance floors going forward!

We decided to work with Timba Heat Dance after considering others and we are so happy that we did because we asked him to create a romantic, elegant and vibrant dance routine for us for our wedding. We are new to dancing and after a short time we felt like we’ve been dancing for years. He does an amazing job at instructing and is very patient and thorough. We cannot say enough about how happy we are with the final product as we are now extremely comfortable with our new dance routine and are excited to dance together at our wedding! We highly recommend and appreciate his professionalism, passion for dancing and his creativity! -Obdulia and Brian

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer a variety of options and custom packages to meet my clients needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My process is to always ask if they’ve had none to any dance experience. This will help me figure out what I can do to help my students achieve they goal faster and also see what level of dancer they are. Once we’ve done our quick evaluation, we immediately begin our lesson and have a plan set for them so they can look forward to each upcoming lesson. I also provide homework for my students to assure that they can reach their desire level as long as they do their exercises I show them or repeat the terminology so that they become knowledgeable of the dance we’re learning.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’ve studied Latin dance, Ballroom, and other styles of dance in high school and many different colleges to keep myself open to new styles and techniques. When I was younger, I would participated in advanced/master level classes at Festivals, Congresses, and Workshops to push myself and master all the techniques out there to expand my knowledge and find which techniques fit best for certain moves or combinations. Til this day I still keep myself updated when it comes to new crazy moves, the “hip/popular ” moves, or the casual everyday moves in the dance scene.
