Addie Diaz (Director, Choreographer & Dancer):
Addie Diaz, with a background in Mambo Cha-Cha, Merengue, Hip-Hop and Jazz was trained to be a professional Latin dancer by the late Evelyn Leon. She began performing with "Dancers Fantasy Stars" and was fortunate enough to be trained by some of the best dancers in New York City. She gives Evelyn along with Mario Diaz (no relation), Angel "Negro" Rodriguez and Nelly Cotto credit for their influence in her dancing skills. She then went on to dance in Stacey Lopez’s "New York Salsa Dancers". In 94' she was called to be one of the "RMM Dancers" (Ralph Mercado Management) for the "1994" & "1995" Combinacion Perfecta Tour. She has also freelanced for the "Mario Diaz Dance Revue" and with Luis Zegarra’s "Fuerza Latina". Addie joined "Descarga Latina Dance Company" in 1996 where she assisted Nelson Flores, Director in running the team and along with the other members participated in new choreography.



Addie has had the opportunity to choreograph dance numbers for other teams as well as travel all over the U.S. and throughout the world to perform and teach dance workshops. She has moved on to form her own dance company in early 1999 and is the choreographer of the company’s routines. She is acknowledged for her creative and diversified dance choreography. Several of her numbers have been featured in the Off-Broadway Mambo Musical: Latin Madness.
