Alberto Lazcurain works in construction and repair, which he likes although it is hard work.
But dancing is his passion.
"I remember dancing [when] I was very young [and] easily adapted to any rhythm," said Lazcurain, who won multiple dancing competitions while growing up. "I like to dance differently [than most], but sexy [dancing]."
Lazcurain came to Chicago on vacation years ago and was taking a break from being a lawyer. That's when he saw go-go dancersand decided that's what he wanted to do as well.
"My job as a dancer has been great fun, knowing many people as co-workers always make a good team and of course [thinking we are doing] very well."
Lazcurain has danced locally at Circuit Nightclub and Fantasy as the venue is now know. He also has worked at Hydrate, Sanctuary Nightclub and Club Krave.
"I've had excellent experiences in each [venue]," he said.
Dancing has given Lazcurain positive and negative experiences, he said. He's grown as a person from each, he said.
Dancing, he added, is a "[personal] expression of myself, my feelings, my joys, my sorrows. To feel the music running in my veins, to feel the different rhythms in each one of its notes, that makes me explode of emotions."
So what's the worst part of his go-go run?
When the music ends on his dance, he said.
"I am a kind, happy, spontaneous, respectful and honest person," Lazcurain said. "In my scale of values, I [shoot to be] an excellent friend, person and companionand all that [comes from] the education my parents gave me, and I love them."
