Jhesus Aponte has been surrounded by dance his entire life and has taken the talent he was born with to the greatest heights with every intention of continuing his ascension to even taller peaks. An internationally renowned dancer and choreographer who is taking the world by storm, Jhesus is a two-time winner of World Salsa Championships, prestigious titles to add to his already abundant list of accomplishments.
Jhesus's inherent love of dance took a more professional turn at the hands of a friend who brought him to an aerobic jazz class. "I was enchanted," he says of that first formal lesson, "and decided to start training to become a more complete dancer." Classes in Jazz, Ballet, Music Theater, Tap, Hip-Hop, Swing, Hustle, Flamenco, Rumba, and Pole Dance, ensued at various schools throughout Puerto Rico, including Bailos, New Attitude, Conservatorio de Ballet Concierto de Puerto Rico, Dance Machine, and New York City at Broadway Dance Center, and Eglevsky Ballet where he had a Summer Scholarship.
In 1991, Jhesus landed his first job as a professional dancer, and has not stopped working professionally since. He has taught and performed in countries such as, Turkey, Italy, Morocco, Hungary, Australia, Spain, Japan, South Korea, France, Monaco, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Israel, Poland, The Caribbean and Germany as well as in North, Central and South America.
