John Manego & Shiloh Cardenas are fusion-instructors and pioneers of a style called "Zoukchata”. Based out in Los Angeles, they have single-handedly influenced and changed the scene in a positive-open way. Their main focuses are: musicality, connection and an open-mind. With an extensive background in Bachata and Zouk, and also in Salsa, Hip Hop, Ballet, Ballroom and Jazz, they take their style to a very unique/technical level.
They have inspired thousands of dancers to go out of their comfort zone and look at dance through different lenses. Dance isn't just a job for them -- it's a lifestyle focusing on personal growth, development and the betterment of others.
They are regular instructors at Los Angeles Bachata Festival (have taught at many others), currently have 3 dance teams, teach at the popular nightclub Sevilla weekly, and run their social called "Zoukchata Uprizing" -- which has 5 rooms - Bachata, Zouk, Salsa, Kizomba, Hip Hop - and attended by over 300+ dancers!
