Ian Pacheco Biography:

Ian Pacheco started his artistic life when he was 17 studying cinema, theatre and dance. Started in the cinema, but couldn't hold himself behind the camera, leading him to acting classes, interpretation for tv, and Latin dances, including Zouk. Later, focused entirely on dance, he took classes of ballet, jazz, modern and contemporary dances. In 2012, at only 23 years old, he became a business man, opening his own Dance Center along with the creation of the Ian Pacheco's Dance Company teaching Zouk, salsa, Forro and Samba. 

Since then, he has traveled to Canada and Europe teaching Zouk to the students of the world, and most recently, at the LA Zouk Congress 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

For him, the dance unites and transforms people's lives for the better.
