Eduardo Fajardo has been a dancer for more than 20 years, and has been a performer throughout that time. He was a dancer for the prestigious Folk Dance Group of his native country Honduras, ”SECTUR” (Secretaria de Cultura y Turismo).He moved to New York in 1992 with his family and continued to dance in local exhibitions promoted by the Honduras Consulate in New York City.

 

He has studied ballroom dancing at the studios of the Arthur Murray School in Bayshore Long Island, where he then became an instructor in all levels of ballroom dancing specializing in Latin dances. He taught dances like samba, salsa, mambo, cha-cha, paso doble, merengue, waltz, swing, tango and rumba.

 While living in Long Island, he participated in many different community theaters, as a choreographer and instructor. His Theater Art and Ballroom dance skills have led him to participate in several dance exhibitions and competitions.

 

During the summer of 2000, he taught salsa and swing at the Bally Total Fitness clubs in New York City, where he is currently working as an instructor, teaching different aerobics classes as well as Zumba classes at all their New York and New Jersey locations.
