Alex Da Silva Biography

As a biography, Alex Da Silva was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His name is sometimes misspelled “Alex De-Silva”. He was a child dancer but was only introduced to Salsa dancing when he was 20 years old. From that point he developed into one of the most famous Salsa dancers in the world. This is why he is so good.

He taught 15,000 people how to dance in his San Francisco studio before relocating to Hollywood California. There he showed the moves to some of the biggest names in show business, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, P. Diddy, Will Smith, and Vin Diesel.

Alex Da Silva’s reputation led to choreography contracts in the movie business and occasional acting opportunities as well in movies and commercial advertisements. You can study the details of Mr. Salsa right here.

According to police:

“The four victims in this case were all students of DeSilva at the time of the assaults. The victims alleged that he lured them to his homes in North Hollywood and Van Nuys. He then used a ruse to get them into his bedroom where he raped them.”

    WTF? Where in this news article does it say anything about children. It says his alleged victims where women.

    I think you have a complex.

    It says one of the victims was under age. Well as long as I’ve known him and the women he has tried to “lure”, they all told me the same thing about him. I’m not surprised and neither are they.
    Looks like he’ll be put away for a while. Good. Maybe someday he’ll learn to dance on-time. Geez, how can he be so famous without any rhythm.
