Alejandro Rey is the co-owner of the Steps of Gold Dance Studio in Santa Fe Springs, CA with his mother, Alicia Mendibles. He is the Assistant Director of the critically acclaimed Paso De Oro Dance Company, which is dedicated to performing traditional Mexican Ballet Folkloric Dance.
At the age of 18, Alejandro Rey founded the Latin Dance Department of Paso De Oro in 2002. They focuse 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. It is based on integrating new elements of Jazz, Hip Hop, and R & B into their Bachata, creating a dance that is set to stage for today's audience.
