Meet Our Team

Crizam Carlos, Director

Crizam was introduced to the world of Latin dance at the invitation of a good friend. Without a hint of experience, he stepped onto the dance floor of a local Salsa club and immediately fell in love. Fast forward a few short years, and Crizam has studied under world-class instructors and has performed on stage at multiple dance festivals and competitions. He has appeared in and choreographed for the upcoming film The Bounce Back starring Shemar Moore, danced for the fitness DVD, LatinVa, and choreographed for private events such as weddings and birthdays. Crizam is also a personal trainer and health coach, who is passionate about transforming the lifestyles and bodies of his clients through great nutrition, fitness, and a positive attitude.

 

 

Alejandra Rodriguez, Administrator

Alejandra is currently a third year undergrad at California State University Northridge (CSUN) majoring in Child Development. After graduation, her goal is to work with children with special needs and to help them succeed in their bright futures. Alejandra was introduced to dance as a child, but did not make it a lifestyle until her sophomore year of college when she joined CSUN's Latin dance team, Salsa Libre. Since then, she has worked hard to improve as both a dancer and performer. She is also a fitness enthusiast who enjoys Spartan racing, the outdoors and traveling.

Rolando Caceres, Choreographer

Rolando went to college with two left feet, but during his freshman year at California State University Northridge (CSUN) he joined the on-campus Latin dance team Salsa Libre. From that point on he never looked back, and fully pursued his love of Salsa and Bachata. He has competed three times with Salsa Libre at the College Salsa Congress and taken home two 1st Place titles with the team. He was also awarded Best Performer and Most Valuable Dancer in 2013 and 2014. Rolando has since graduated from CSUN with a degree in Art with a focus in Animation and 3D Modeling. He has worked with many talented and wonderful dancers over the years, and he continues to grow in his appreciation of the Latin dance art form. Currently he is a choreographer and performer at Fuerza Rumbera Dance Company.
