Trejo of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, is a professional dancer at Ballet Folklorico of the University of Colima, Mexico, and is a consultant, choreographer and honorary assistant director for Ballet Folklórico of Los Angeles. He also teaches art in elementary school in Colima. He has a bachelor’s degree in art with major in stage dance from the University of Colima.
