Bacharico – New Orleans

Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. My 1st dances were Bachata and Merengue highly influenced by my Dominican background. Studying and Training with and under Aurelio Gonzalez (Cuban Master based in New Orleans), Troy Anthony, Jorjet Alcocer and Raymond Armant of Mambo Orleans has since solidified my foundation as an Instructor and Student. I am currently a Professional Instructor based out of two Dance Studios in New Orleans where I teach 7 classes per week in addition to teaching and performing around the country in various communities and at various congresses. Classes include Bachata, Salsa on1 LA Style and Salsa on2 New York Style. Recent Dance Highlights: Performed a Ballroom Samba and Mambo Routine with Karina Smirnoff and Dmitri from Dancing With The Stars, Crowned Mr. Aventura Dance Cruise 2016. The journey continues.

Our Story

It started as an idea between friends, bringing a congress to Texas where at the time Texas had no active congress in the entire state. A congress that would showcase Texas Salsa talent, bring awareness of salsa to the community and raise money for scholarships. Together David Melendez and Ruby Rivera worked hard and in January 2004, the Texas Salsa Congress was born.
