Moving to Canada from Guatemala at the age of 7 gave Gustavo an early appreciation for travel and culture. Travelling at every chance he gets, Gustavo is always seeking out the next adventures.

Proud to say he is doing what he loves, Gustavo is the Founder and Artistic Director of Gusto Dance Co. based out of Toronto. Traveling the globe to perform amongst the world’s best dancers, Gustavo and his team know how to put on a show. Mixing dance with event management, Gustavo is also CEO of Gusto Entertainment, which brings Toronto and Montreal a new wave of stylish and sophisticated events. Known for his dapper attire and swagger on the dance floor, what truly distinguishes Gustavo from the rest is his entourage of friends and family who are his backbone and constant lifeline. A true family man – Gustavo brings a new meaning to the word loyalty.

What I put on my burger: I’m very simple – lettuce, ketchup, cheese and bacon.

My guilty indulgence is: Traveling whenever possible, wherever possible.

In my past life I was: James Bond.

In my next life I’ll be: James Bond.

If my life were a genre of movie it would be: Actually, it would be a Spanish novella – a classic Latin soap opera.

Favourite ice cream flavour: I know, BORING! But I’m a lover of vanilla –especially on a hot apple pie.

To relieve stress I: Dance, choreograph or head to the beach, just to hear the sound of the waves.
