Swing Latino

Swing Latino is a salsa dance school and academy located in Cali, Colombia. The school was founded in the late ’90s by current director and choreographer, and team member Luis Eduardo Hernandez (also known as El Mulato). Swing Latino was designed to be a way to get impoverished kids in Colombia off the streets, and doing something creative. They grew into a world-class salsa dance collective and one of the most famous attractions in Cali. Swing Latino has won multiple salsa dance contests in their home country Colombia and in the United States including the 2004 World Congress "Salsa Open" in Philadelphia, the 2005 World Salsa Dancing Federation's Championship, in Miami and the 2006 and 2007 Las Vegas Salsa Championship, which aired in ESPN. Swing Latino has also performed abroad in Puerto Rico and toured throughout the United Kingdom. In 2009, Swing Latino was a guest performer in the Polish television show You Can Dance: Po prostu tańcz! and the following day made another appearance on that same country's morning show Dzień Dobry TVN. Swing Latino also appeared on the Colombian telenovela Un Sueño Llamado Salsa which aired in the United States on the Spanish language network Telefutura in 2010. In 2012, after a visit from fellow salsa singer Marc Anthony, Swing Latino was featured as one of many Latin artists appearing in the television show ¡Q'Viva! The Chosen, airing in both Fox and Univision networks. Swing Latino competed on the season of the 2017 reality program World of Dance as an finalist.
