JJ Latin Dancers was founded in the summer of 2000 by Julian Hidalgo. After graduating from High School, Hidalgo’s passion of dancing and performing transcended into a reality, by creating his very own dance project.
At the end 2006, at the age of 24, Hidalgo was the first to open a NY Style Salsa "On2" studio in the state of Rhode Island. At such a young age and without any mentor, Hidalgo directed, instructed, and managed the dance studio on his very own. Hidalgo’s passion for teaching quickly evolved to creating choreographies and dance teams.
Hidalgo and his dance company have taught and performed in many local festivals and events. As well as many Salsa and Bachata Congresses across the United States; including the Connecticut Salsa Festival, Boston Salsa Festival, Las Vegas Congress, New York Salsa Congress, Texas Bachata Festival, USA Bachata and Kizomba Festival (NJ), Atlanta and more.
In 2013, JJ Latin Dancers enlisted their first Co-Owner, Jasmin Hidalgo Medina. Together, they've taught the art and essence of NY Style “On 2” and both Authentic and Modern Style Bachata. Both directors are dedicated to ensuring that their students grasp not only the dance itself, but the culture that lies within the dance.
In late January of 2015, the world renowned F. Tomas Guerrero contacted Hidalgo to become the first Santo Rico Certified Instructor outside of the Santo Rico Dance Company. In October 2015, Hidalgo completed All Levels of the Certification.
