João started West Coast Swing in 2012, and what moved him to start was his love for the music that we could dance west coast swing to. After he started teaching WCS and organizing parties and events in Rio de Janeiro to develop the community, João also started DJing there.

João is addicted to listening to music and loves searching and listening to new songs, and that was what led him to continue DJing even at the biggest Brazilian events. Now leaving in Europe, João is DJing at parties at the BeYou dance studio and more frequently at International events. João has DJed at The Open, The Brazilian Open, West In Rio, West Câmbio, Brasília Swing Brasil, Global Grand Prix, Swingin Festival, Rolling Swing, and Westies Angels.
