Artist Bios:
El Tiguere Del Mambo of Island Touch was born in Rochester, NY to a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother. El Tiguere’s father being a self taught musician imparted a feel and love for music that would permeate all that El Tiguere does. A passionate dancer and DJ, El Tiguere's style is full of swag, seximiento and energy. El Tiguere has successfully fused his training in Bachata at Island Touch Dance with his Dominican background and created a whole new style called Dominican Touch. El Tiguere dances for the Island Touch Salsa and Bachata teams. DJ Tiguere is internationally known for his Bachata Mixes and is a rising star in the Salsa DJ community.

El Tiguere's partner Bianca Derival, born and raised in New York, started her dance career at a very early age. Inspired by icons such as Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Aaliyah, she began her exploration in the world of Hip-Hop dance under the guise of world renowned Artistic Director/ Choreographer, Excel Garner. After realizing her immense talent, he recommended she continue her training while receiving her college education at The University of Hartford.

“Fenomena” Hip Hop Dance Company, instantly saw her raw talents, and invited Bianca into their Fall Auditions. Within two years of training in the company, she was promoted to Vice President, allowing her to hone her skills as a leader within the Connecticut dance community. After graduating Hartford, with new acquired skills in dance and administration, Bianca moved back to New York City in 2011. She sought out different choreographers and companies to help expand her knowledge and training in dance. While attending the Summer 2011 New York Salsa Congress, she discovered Island Touch Dance Academy. Instantly intrigued by their passion and love for dance, Bianca sought out lessons and insight into this prestigious organization, and their passion for dance and music. After attending their Summer Auditions, Bianca was invited to join New York Touch, later joining Ladies Touch.

As a member of Team Touch, Bianca travels, performs and assists workshops alongside the most credible names in the Latin Dance Community, contributing her unique sensual style, technique and musicality to the art.

She seeks to inspire dancers to grow and become the dancers they envision.
