Jesus Eduardo Vargas

Growing up in Mexico City, Eduardo studied and danced for several dance companies specializing in Ballet Folklorico and Latin rhythms. After moving to the United States, he competed in track and field and performed figure skating.  Later he decided to focus on his main passion of dance, studying with renowned Samba dancers such Tedje Rose (Director of Akat Dance Troupe), Iya (former Carnaval Queen and Aguarela member), and Maisa Duke (director of Energia do Samba, former Carnaval Queen).  Eduardo has been performing Samba professionally for many years and currently dances with Akat Dance Troupe and BrasArte, as well as his own performing company, Colores de Samba.  He is also a certified personal trainer and certified Zumba instructor.  Eduardo brings his roots as an ethnic dancer and dynamic Samba energy to his ongoing private and group dance fitness classes throughout the San Francisco Bay area.
