Born in San Francisco, California, Pazmino made his entrance into entertainment at the age of 9, as a professional dancer. He and his mother moved to Los Angeles, where he danced and acted for small dance and theater companies by the age of 16. His dance career took off as he begun performing with top A-list music artists in the industry, such as Justin Timberlake in 2002. In 2006, he decided to move back home to the Bay Area, where he continued dancing with many talented choreographers and directors, but also started building his own choreography repertoire and choreographing work for his first independent hip hop business. Pazmino has since choreographed for music artists such as Kevin Mikal and Kenny, various other independent artists and also for non-profits and fundraiser events.
Over the years he has transitioned from the world of commercial dance and entertainment to teaching, where he has discovered a joy for sharing his love of dancing with people of all ages. Since 2008, Pazmino has been expanding his creative wings by taking on such roles as choreographer and director for dance studios all over the San Francisco Bay Area, where he has worked with numerous clients ranging from kids to adults in ballet, jazz and hip hop classes. His gratification for showing others the beauty of dance has allowed him to combine his entertainment and performance background with teaching.
Pazmino is currently teaching jazz and hip hop as well as his style of hip hop dance through his company, BodyBeatz, in the cities of San Francisco and Palo Alto, California. His most recent developments include working with BAFM – Bay Area Flash Mob, creating unique, dynamic choreography for performances, and volunteering his time to teach youth community hip hop dance sessions at FACES SF, a non-profit in San Francisco dedicated to nurturing, teaching, and empowering the city’s under-served children and families.
Pazmino continues to strive for enriching people’s lives by discovering new ways to share his passion and gifts with the world. His personal and creative growth are constantly excelling, as he remains passionate and dedicated about bringing his knowledge of choreography and dance from the stage into the dance studio.
