Our-Story

PasoFino Dance is a brand dedicated to teach you the joys of Latin Dancing. You see, we believe that everyone (even us pros) prefers having someone else teach us the moves. Why? You learn faster! The faster you learn, the more you enjoy this beautiful dance. Our mission is to bring Passion to the people. To bring out the dancer in you and empower you along the journey. Our one of a kind, athlete instructors guide dancers through an inspirational, fun dance experience that’s designed to benefit the mind, body, and soul. Set in a party club ambiance to soulful Latin music, our dancers move in unison to the sound of the beat and follow the signature choreography of our instructors. The experience is tribal. It's primal. It's fun.

Founder Jose Maldonado, a passionate of Latin music and warmth of the dance community, determined on the vision: To create an alternative to group dance courses that felt like work. He developed an inspiring concept that's as simple as it is joyful — an experience that's the best part of our dancers’ day, every day, and that has transformed their views to dance class.

We realize this is not just a dance class; it is your hang out, your therapy and your cardio workout. Our dancers say it’s changing their lives. With every step, our minds clear and we connect with our true and best selves. Through this shared self experience, our dancers learn to let go and seize the moment to experience Life in a different light. We laugh, we cry, we grow — and we do it together, as a community.

Anyone can be an athlete, a rockstar, a warrior... our dancers come to us from all backgrounds, fitness levels and dance experience. PASOFino is for everyone.

We could go on and on, but you won’t believe it unless you’ve experienced it yourself. Our community is calling your name, so come in for a dance... Take your journey. Change your body. Find your Passion.


" To me, Dancing is like a Candy. How can you tell somebody how sweet it is... if they never taste the candy." ~ Jose Maldonado
