My name is Mario Ortiz. I just recently moved back to Los Angeles from Italy where I lived for 10 years.
My ethnicity is American Indian, Spanish and Mexican. I’m originally from New Mexico.
I consider myself a gypsy entertainer as I’ve lived in many different countries.
I started my dancing career in Honolulu, Hawaii. From there I choreographed a show for Tokyo Japan for a 4 month contract. I then worked for a show in Osaka Japan for 3 months. I was then called to help with choreography and to star in a show in Puerto Rico where I lived for about a year. I also toured New Zealand before I moved to Los Angeles where I first started working with the The Hollywood Men. I then toured all of Europe where my main gig was the front man to many rock bands.
What kind of woman do I like? Someone who is down to earth and has had experience in life. Someone humble and full of life that can make me smile and laugh. I love independent and secure women. If I’m just looking for fun, I want a girl with lots of energy to keep up with me 😉
I recently started dancing again with The Hollywood Men. When I got back from Italy, my idea was just to be a waiter, I enjoyed it but the stage is where I was born to be, so Scott Layne put me back up on that stage. Even though I started dancing again, in the past 10 years I dedicated myself to music.
I do consider myself a dancer because I love it and have lots of experience dancing but my true calling is music! I’m a singer and by the way, you can hear a little of my voice at the show in my Cowboy strip act. I sing Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive”.
I just recently hooked up with a band here in LA so keep your ears open. In my career as a singer I recorded 3 albums.
Hope to meet you at the show.
