2017 Pro: DORIAN GRAMAJO
Originally from Guatemala, Dorian has lived in Chicago and Hampton Roads for most of his life. He has been dancing for over ten years and is currently a DJ on Selecta 1050, the
Hispanic radio station as well as head DJ and owner of the Mambo Room.
Dorian says, “I use to prefer dancing over spinning music, but then salseros started to call and request me, and that just made me feel good. I love it when the entire room is full of salseros, bachateros,… all of them dancing and enjoying my music.”
According to Dorian, “the Mambo Room has, is, and will keep changing people’s lives. Everyone is humble like a big family, and we all support each other to become great dancers. My biggest satisfaction is when I see someone new taking the beginner’s class, and then a few months later you see them dancing and doing what they’ve learned and having a lot of fun.
Thanks to the Mambo Room, I’ve met hundreds of wonderful people. Dancing is by far one of the best things that has happened in my life.”
