About Us


Rogelio Moreno, Janette Valenzuela and Francisco Vazquez are the promoters of the first annual World Salsa Festival Los Angeles, May 22, 23 and 24, 2020. Their experience in teaching, choreographing, preforming, 

competing, judging, producing and coaching with their prospective dance companies

launched the Los Angeles Salsa scene onto the world stage.

They are the creators of LA’s first 3 professional international dance companies; Janette Valenzuela, Co-Founder of “Salsa Brava Dance Company”, Francisco Vazquez, Founder of “Los Rumberos Dance Company” and Rogelio Moreno, Founder of “Salsabor y Cache Dance Company”. Collectively, they have toured their prospective companies to Salsa Festivals, Puerto Rico, New York, Miami, Italy, Japan, Mexico, UK, France, Netherlands, Colombia and many more.

They have joined forces as a united front to continue a vision by Salsa Festival producers, their mentors, that influenced their careers, Eli Irizarry, creator of “El Congreso Mundial de la Salsa - Puerto Rico” and Albert Torres, creator of the “L A Salsa Festival.”

With the support of the LA Salsa and Bachata scene and abroad, the trio’s goal is to unite the community, throw an unforgettable party, and continue the tradition by planting seeds for future generations.
