He later moved to New York City taking classes from Eddie Torres, Frankie Martinez, Ismael Otero, and Sekou McMiller along with taking different style of classes throughout New York City.

Who is Alejandro?
Salsa! The Happy Music.
Owner of Miami Baila Dance Studio, Alejandro Marambio was born in Chile, and has been in the United States since the early 1980's first living in New York City and now, Miami.
Alejandro started to dance after experiencing the salsa scene in New York City. He was reffered to take lessons with Jorday Rivera, a disciple of Eddie Torres, where he learned the fundamentals of this amazing dance. He immediately jumped into classes with Jorday and the king of Mambo Eddie Torres to develop his skills in his dancing. Also taking classes at Yamulé and attending several socials in NYC, he felt the need to share this amazing experience with people. After many years of owning his own business outside of dance he decided to stop all things and open his own studio in the Heart of Little Havana Miami.
Living in Miami since 2013, with more than 20 years of experience taking lessons and enjoying the dance, he opened his doors of Miami Baila Dance Studio in 2019 to offer a location for those who want to learn this amazing New York City style of Salsa and Bachata for Miamians. He wants this location to be the home for many dances so that anyone who enters feels this is their home away from home and learn several styles of dance and live a better life one step at a time much like his own experience.
