DR8 diamond level instructor
Pipo Alcala was born in San Pedro de Macoris Dominican Republic. His father, an outstanding "Sonero" dancer, transmitted to him from his babyhood the knowledge and passion of Latin Caribbean dances. In 2000, he got the passion for salsa and founded his first dancing school "Pipo La Fama" in San Pedro de Macoris. There he trained the best Salsa dancers in the country (including some very famous sport stars like Sammy Sosa) and participated in various national competitions.
Named national champion in 2003, he took part in numerous demonstrations and exhibitions across the country, danced for various TV programs and international movies, « For Love or Country: the Arturo Sandoval Story » with Andy Garcia being one of them. He also set up choreographies for several of the biggest Dominican salsero’s concerts: Michel, Adruba, Keman Nuñez, Grupo Negro etc. In 2004, the singer Sexapil solicited Pipo in order to collaborate in the realization of his Emmy Award nominated video “Meneando la Cola”. At the end of 2004, he moved to Las Terrenas and created a new dancing school "Salsa Caribe". Since then, Pipo performed several times in congresses and events in Dominican Republic as well as Europe and gave numerous workshops for foreigners groups. His endless passion for dancing and his priceless knowledge of the dance world naturally brought him to associate with the setting up of SalsaCaribe Group.
Pipo has been the driving force behind the DR1, DR2, DR3 and DR4 bachata festivals. DR6 welcomes him as a diamond level instructor to teach authentic Dominican style bachata.
