Rogelio was born in Chicago Illinois, lived most of his life in Guadalajara, Mexico before relocating with his family to Los Angeles. As a young boy he spent much of his time with his grandmother, a professional dancer, from whom he inherited his grace and facility for Latin dancing.

The seed of his passion for dance was planted in him the day he was born and has only continued to flourish since then. He went from dancing his own steps at family parties at the age of three, to learning the structure of dances such as salsa, cha-cha, merengue, mambo, bolero, quebradita, punta and the Mexican waltz from his grandmother. Soon he began dancing his own steps; but this time with the knowledge and adeptness to combine his god-given natural talent with the predefined form and technique, which has thus created his unique and elegant style for which he is well known in all parts of the world.

Rogelio is in demand for his teaching, choreography, and acting. His heart keeps the beat of the clave, his body the bass, the piano, violin, horns, and his feet play the congas and sing. He is a one man band with a dancing show.

Rogelio Moreno is a key member of the Los Angeles salsa movement, without his creative passion and innovative spirit, the west coast would just not be the same.
