Reinier Valdes was born in Habana, Cuba. He first started dancing to the Afro Cuban rhythms at a young age of 13. Reinier got immediately discovered by a professional Afro Cuban dance team who recruited his talent and showcased him all over Cuba. At age 18 he graduated from the Cuban school of dance as a dance instructor specializing in Latin rhythms, such as Cuban Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, and Rumba. In February of 2009 Reinier relocated to Brazil where he continued his work as a dancer, performer, and choreographer. He started his own performance group touring and performing Brazil. Reinier now lives in Seattle, WA and is very excited to continue his work here and share his talent and passion for the Afro Cuban rhythms through dance classes, workshops, and performances.
