Lenny Montes

Studio Director/Choreographer | Salsa, Danzercise Instructor | Event Specialist (Wedding/Quinceañera)

Lenny started dancing when she was 5 years old in El Salvador.  Her parents
moved to the US when she was 8 years old, for the same reason so many come to
this country, to give their children a better life than the one they knew.

When she was 10 years old, and knew how to speak the language, she joined the
drill team at her elementary school.  She always had a passion for the performing
arts, as she joined the school choir and found herself in every school play.

While still in high school, she began her coaching career as her high school cheer
coach.  She continued to coach for 5 years and trained with the National
Cheerleader’s Association and as a cheerleader at CSULA.  While at CSULA
obtaining her Communications Degree with a minor in Dance, she was presented
with many opportunities to tour and perform on stage and film.

Now expanding a professional dance career of over 17 years, Lenny has had the
privilege to work with celebrities such as Pilar Montenegro, La Chilindrina, Akwid
and Cristal Sierra.  Her credits to stage and film include appearances on the likes
of Sabado Gigante, Despierta America, Mad TV, VH1, Univision and Telemundo.

After settling in San Fernando to build her family, Lenny fought the odds to open
the doors to Danzone.  Ever since that October in 2007, the goal has always been
the same, to help people, young and old, achieve  their truest potential and
happiness through dance and fitness.  She tries to make sure that every class she
teaches delivers to her students technique, injury prevention and FUN!

As a studio director, Lenny has brought on some of the most skilled and
passionate professionals in the industry, to teach Danzone’s Children’s Dance
Program.  As a parent herself, Lenny understands the families we serve work very
hard to give their children the very best, and so she too makes that her mission.

Although it’s been over 6 years since Lenny opened the doors to Danzone, she
has not forgotten that it was family, friends and community who made it happen.
This is why Danzone operates the way it does… we serve in a community to bring
friends together who end up being our family!
