Instructor Biography

Demetrio Rosario, Bachata Instructor, Performer, DJ, and Promoter

Demetrio Rosario, aka “Sooo Nasty", is a dancer and instructor of Dominican descent based out of Los Angeles, California. He is famously known for his unique smooth/sensual style of dance, which gained him his affectionate nickname. Having been exposed to Latin music through his family at a very early age, Demetrio was instantly hooked. He can distinctly recall the sound of Bachata and Merengue echoing through the walls at home and family events alike, which brought him even closer to his love for the music.

Demetrio always had a passion for dancing at heart, but truly began his career at the age of 18 taking Salsa Lessons with World Renowned instructor Ashkan Jabarianha; improving his timing, technique and musicality through his studies with the Canadian Salsa Instructor. In 2005 he joined Candela Pura Dance Company, led by Los Angeles's very own beloved Salsa instructor's Miguel Aguirre and his father Francisco Aguirre. “Traveling and performing locally inspired me to improve my dancing…" Demetrio recalls, “After seeing so many great dancers and performers I knew I wanted to work harder to enhance my skills, both as an instructor and performer."

Demetrio then joined the powerhouse dance company Bachata Caliente, where he spent 2 years undergoing intense instruction with World Renowned Co-Directors Jorge Contreras and Leslie Ferreira. In 2010, Demetrio spent some time teaching in Canada, where he had the pleasure of introducing Dominican Bachata to Vancouver dancers; significantly changing how Bachata is danced in the area. He currently manages the Intermediate team at Que Rico Dance, a new Company founded by Director Jorge Contreras that is quickly taking the scene by storm! He has also received 2 Best Male Instructor awards and Best Bachata DJ in the past.

Demetrio continues to dance, DJ, and perform, focusing on teaching “Sensual Dominican Style" Bachata and Salsa. He is beloved by students of all ages and backgrounds for his charismatic personality and ability to bring even the most introverted personality out of their shell.

“Soo Naasty!!"
