Vittico La Magia, NYC/Dominican Republic

Victor "Vittico La Magia" Pacheco was born in the Dominican Republic and started dancing after his move to Puerto Rico in the 1980s. Under the direction of Wilton Beltre (founder of the Santo Rico Company), he was able to refine rudimentary dance moves into masterpieces. Vittico, as he is often referred to, created his first professional dance team, "The Magia Dancers", and functions as its Creative Director. With precision few could imitate, Victor Pacheco would later become domestically and internationally known as one of the creators of Street Salsa. He is responsible for and accredited with the renaissance of urban salsa dancing and its incorporation onto the streets.

Unequivocally, Vittico is a luminary in the salsa scene whose creativity will leave an indelible mark for generations. New York City and fans around the world await his re-entrance to the stage.
