Rodolfo Guzman, a native of Mexico City – grew up listening to classic Mambo music that his father loved dancing to.
Rodolfo started taking classes from Ava in 2002, joined The Latin Symbolics in 2004, and became Ava’s dance partner in 2005.
Their first performance together was at “Festival Borincano 2005” in Puerto Rico. Together, they have taught & performed at various venues including the Reno Bachata Festival, SF Bay Area Bachata Festival, West Coast Salsa Congress, Chicago Salsa Congress, and Puerto Rico Hustle & Salsa Festival, to name just a few!
Rodolfo has a natural ability to “break it down” and explain things simply & clearly, and is known for his “no nonsense” approach to teaching.
Together with his partner Ava Apple, he is owner of Symbolic Dance & Fitness in San Francisco, Ca., and directs The Latin Symbolics, and Yamulee Project SF dance teams.
