Johnny Vazquez & Su Imperio Azteca

Mexico

Johnny Vazquez (born in 1979) is a popular performer and instructor in the latin dance scene.  He is part of the famed Vazquez brothers (Johnny, Francisco, and Luis Vazquez) who helped create and shape the ‘On1’, or L.A. Style, of salsa.  He is known for exciting routines, incredible body movement, and character acting, and singing in his performances.  He initially became interested in salsa after a young lady left him on the dance floor due to his lack of skills.  Soon afterwards he began taking classes from his brother Fracisco at his dance studio.   Johnny credits his brothers Francisco and Luis for being teaching how to dance.
