At 18 years young, Alejandro Rey founded the Latin Dance Department of Paso De Oro in 2002. They are now in their 5th year of existence focusing on modern Latin dances at the performance level including Salsa, Samba, Merengue, Cha Cha, Tango, Ballet, and Latin Jazz and more notably "Urban Bachata."
"Urban Bachata" is how Alejandro Rey and Paso De Oro define their Bachata dance style. Integrating new elements of Jazz, Hip Hop, and R & B into their Bachata creating a dance that is set to stage for todays audience. It is fun and entertaining to watch, but even more fun to dance! "I created this style for the new generation. We emphasize modern ideals such as posture, sharp musicality, precise partnering, and overall attitude and style; yet we maintain traditional Dominican ideals such as sensuality, hip motion and footwork," he states.
Performance credits include Bachateros such as Monchy y Alexandra, Xtreme, Andy Andy, and is scheduled to perform with Toby Love in San Diego in February 2009.
