He started his dancing career on the Island called ‘The Pearl of the Orient Sea’, Cebu City. He doesn’t believe in dancing at first however dancing chose him. He joined dance classes with his friends and was hesitant at first but the Cuban beats hit him, and he began to love it. Since then he’s danced and travelled around the world performing, competing and teaching dance.
Through his passion and dedication, he has achieved great results in dancing, making his name known in South East Asia, Asia, Europe and Now in AUSTRALIA.
Kevin has called Australia home since 2017, studied the Language, learned the local ways, and now teaches 50 lessons while still maintaining his competitive career.
He teaches in QuickSteps, almost every day, and dedicates his love of dancing to his students, making everyone dance wise ease.
Kevin’s lessons focus on the American social and the international syllabus. He also knows Argentine Tango, Line dancing and Shines. The main thing you get from a lesson with Kevin is that dancing is FUN no matter your experience. Whether you want to learn for fun or for competition Kevin will make it happen.
Outside of teaching, Kevin is currently the Australian Champion in Amateur Latin and is aiming to become one of the top dancers in the world.
Our first instinct when asked to write a review for Kevin was to say a bunch of terrible things so that we might keep him to ourselves….but seriously….our experience of having Kevin as a teacher has been wonderful. He is always smiling and welcoming.No matter how long we may take to master a move or how many times we then go on to forget it and need a re-cap Kevin patiently and cheerfully takes us through it again, no problem.
He dances beautifully, is fun to be with, always respectful and basically, we look forward to each and every lesson.
Thanks Kevin, for all the skills you’ve shared with us.
We have been fortunate enough to have Kevin as our Dance Instructor for the past five years. Kevin is very knowledgeable in all dance styles and has put together some good routines to enable us to put together the various steps he has taught us. During this time, we have always found him to be cheerful, always interested in what is happening in our lives. He acknowledges our dancing abilities and works within those capabilities and extremely patient when teaching us a new step.

It is such a joy and privilege to dance with Kevin. He is professional, patient, kind and encouraging. Kevin is perceptive about this students’ needs and what they want to get out of their dancing experience. I always feel respected and listened to, and Kevin always helps me to strive for and achieve my goals. It’s always a thrill to dance with someone of his talent and technical calibre.
“I have been dancing with Kevin for more than 5 years now, and it is hard to say what is the thing I enjoy best about having him as my teacher. It might be his outstanding technical ability as a Latin dance teacher or his endless patience with me because this style of dance is out of my comfort zone. But I think it is also about his kindness, and his willingness to go at my pace, even when I need to go over and over a step until I feel like I get it right. And of course his cheerfulness and constantly positive attitude and smile. It is great joy to have him as my teacher and he has helped my confidence a lot in mastering international technique which is not easy for me. I hope I am still dancing with him long into my 70’s. If he will still have me as a student!”
I have been dancing with Keven for 4 ½ years and we have performed 7 routines together at the Quicksteps summer and winter ball events. Kevin has the perfect mix of teaching when it comes to social and competitive dancing. He always manages to find the right balances that works for me, knowing my limitations and strengths and making them work in the best way they can. His knowledge of dance is amazing and always has something new to teach me. I love learning with him and building a strong dance partnership every time we perform together. He is really great at looking after his students and caring about their needs and goals as well as their emotions and wanting to get the best out of them. Kevin is a joy to dance with and I love every moment of it!
I am currently a student of Kevin and have been for the past 2 years. To me Kevin is a highly passionate, professional & highly dedicated teacher of dance. He is always patient, encouraging and super observant so I can improve and build on my dancing technique and extend myself to advance and achieve my personal dancing goals. He shares in my success as I have progressed . He has been teaching me many styles of dance, bachata, salsa, Rumba, the tango, cha-cha & rock ‘n’ roll. He is led by what styles I want to focus on and builds on my dancing ability. I am confident when I dance and am also recently part of a salsa performance team for Quicksteps which has been so rewarding not to mention the friendships I have built with fellow dancers from quicksteps. Many thanks to you Kevin for continuing to be an awesome dedicated teacher, Yours truly, Lucy Bonifazio
