Dominican Bachata Instructor
Aciela developed a passion for dancing and music at an early age she while attended a local music school and joined a dance team. Aciela began dancing Latin dances in 2011, and her first trip to Dominican Republic had a big influence on her development as a dancer. It was in the DR where she met popular artists including Edilio Paredes, Joan Soriano, Ramon Torres, and Joe Veras (to name a few) – and fell in love with Dominican culture and Bachata music. Aciela has traveled the world since then taking classes from international instructors. Aciela has also performed at multiple dance festivals in different genres of music and dance. Aciela began teaching Bachata in 2019 after attending teacher training programs with Carlos Cinta (Chicago,Illinois). She aspires to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere for her classes, demystifying fundamentals and body movement. Using Bachata as a medium for self-expression and creativity, Aciela is dedicated to helping students find their own voice and style, building confidence, and sparking curiosity in Dominican culture and Latin dances in general.
