Where are you from?
I live in Frisco, Texas. I was born and raised in Yerevan, Armenia.
Favorite dancers to watch and/or dance with?
I really enjoy dancing with my dance friends from Studio 22. Since we all have been taking classes there, we all have similar style and understand each other better on the dance floor. On the other hand, I love challenging myself by dancing with advanced dancers and instructors. This helps me to continuously improve my dancing skills.
Favorite socials/places to dance?
Some of my favorite places to dance are Clique Studio, Dallas Dance Studio, Latin Dance Project Studio, Los Lupes Sundays and Salsa in the park at Klyde Warren Park.
Dance Pet Peeve: (Hygiene, No connection, People who teach while dancing, etc)
My dance pet peeve is when the leads are dancing off the count. No musicality, no rythm, no connection makes the worst dance.
Favorite dance moment?
Dancing to the music, throwing in some random moves and smiling your way through the dance.
Favorite dance genre?
My favorite dance genre is Salsa! I mean Salsa is life! I love the music and the energy of the dance. I also enjoy bachata, jive and other ballroom dances.
What movie title describes your attitude while dancing? Why?
Footloose. The movie highlights the importance to dance and be yourself and how it makes you happy. That is exactly how I feel when I dance.
Favorite dance video you’d like to share?
I love watching Riccardo & Yulia videos. They are incredible!
