Other Theater work includes the Broadway musical "In The Heights", "Fame on 42St", "Aida", "A Chorus Line" and more. You can catch him in the films "Dirty Dancing 2 Havana nights"; "Across the universe", "American Gangster"; "Enchanted" and "Step Up 2 the streets" as Alejandro.
On February 13, 2004 Luis's hometown of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico honored him by dedicating the 18th Carnival Celebration in his name. In April 2007 he was selected "Gypsy of the Month" by Adrienne Onofri from BroadwayWorld.com and he achieved his first Drama Desk Award for "Outstanding Ensemble" with the hit musical "In The Heights". In May of 2007, "Latino Leaders" selected him as one of the hottest names in the world of professional theater on the NY stages.
With an intense vision in the optimistic possibilities of art, Luis has developed Revolucion Latina, a movement that celebrates human success and growth, in particular of the Latino artists and performers, who with their choices and actions are great role models for others.

It's been 9 years since we lost Arte Philips from our lives but never from our hearts and memories. He left an irreplaceable void in our community but his humor, heart, intelligence, talent, creativity and charisma will remain a part of us forever. I was honored when he agreed to join me in teaching the hustle class and to dance a spontaneous lead follow hustle at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing years ago. We miss you so much, Arte. RIP Arte Philips and Lori at Midsummer Night's Swing
