Ocho has 8 years of experience with Latin dances such as Salsa, Cuban Salsa, Casino Rueda and was teaching Kizomba for 2 years prior to beginning his Brazilian Zouk training. Ocho fell in love with Zouk when he was invited to teach Kizomba at the DC Zouk Festival in 2016. Shortly afterwards, he began learning Zouk fundamentals from Ry'el and Jessica during the 2016 NY Zouk Festival. Inspired by videos of William Teixeira and Paloma Alves, Ocho traveled to Netherlands to attend the Dutch International Zouk Festival to train with them. At Dutch he had the opportunity to learn from all the top Zouk artists including Jaime Aroxa, Renata Peçanha, William Teixeira, Xandi Liberato, Val Clemente and so many more. Each year he returned to the Dutch Festival and also traveled extensively throughout Europe attending other festivals and participating in local communities in Poland, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Turkey for extended periods. In October 2018, he completed the Dutch International Zouk Congress teachers course with Jaime Aroxa, Renata Peçanha, Adilio Porto the founders from Rio of Zouk Lambada as well as Bruno Galhardo, William and Paloma and Xandi Liberato. Now, he organizes international events, DJs and teaches Zouk in Washington D.C. and Istanbul, Turkey. Ocho has a deep understanding of dance connection, variations of traditional Zouk technique and musicality. His explanations are often philosophical and centered on breathing and being one.
Ocho will be assisted by Terecita Mayorga https://www.facebook.com/events/408520746650239/?event_time_id=408520766650237
