rom a very early age, Jose Perez knew he was born to perform. This Puerto Rican native started dancing at the age of 12 and has never looked back. Folkloric, Jazz, Hip Hop and Salsa first brought him to the dance floor, but four years of formal ballet training really brought his dancing skills together.
In 2008, Jose fell in love with ballroom dancing and began training intensely as a professional instructor. This multi-lingual dancer specializes in latin dancing, but Salsa and Mambo have always been Jose’s favorites. He has competed all over the country and most recently placed third in the nation at the United States Dance Championships Professional Mambo competition. He’s also a top-notch choreographer, coming up with moves for backup dancers for national pageant contestants.
When you don’t see Jose on the dance floor, he’s probably creating works of art with his sewing machines. Jose is also a costume designer, having trained under some of Central Florida’s best designers while he worked at Hardrive Productions, Inc. He’s helped to create costumes for Walt Disney, Universal and many other theme park shows. He’s also a professional makeup artist and hair stylist, earning his Cosmetology Certification from Aveda Institute. Jose is an extremely well-rounded dancer, costume designer, and performer, creating works of art for many all over the country.
