What (or who) originally inspired you to try Latin dancing? OR What are your first memories of latin dancing?
My parents met salsa dancing and started going to Dallas Can Dance (DCD). Since attending my first social at DCD, “Latin Addiction”, I’ve been addicted to learning as much as I can from the amazing Sebastian Fonyo and Elisa.
Describe a moment in your dance life that made you feel proud?
My first performance with the DCD beginner team. All of my best dance friends were there and it was a totally unique feeling.
Do you have any Social Dance Pet Peeves: (Hygiene, No connection, People who teach while dancing, etc)
Definitely small dance floors which leave no space for anything but basic steps.
You’re part of the Dallas Can Dance team and you look like you’re having a lot of fun. Why do you enjoy being part of that group?
I love the people who are on the team. They are so accepting and always giving their best. And I’m so proud to say that I am with the most thorough, talented, creative, and hardworking teachers in all of DFW. And, of course, my dance partner inspires me to go above and beyond my limits.
You and Danijela have become part of the Dallas Can Dance Intermediate Pro Team. What do you like best about dancing with Danijela and why do you think you dance so well together?
We have a connection that I have never felt with anyone else. Since our very first dance at DCD, we felt that we had this great potential to grow. Our plan is to stick together as partners and best friends through anything. We want to become performers together, and right now we are focused on giving our best and improving as much as possible for that to happen.
You’re a pretty young guy! Do you have any dance goals you’d like to achieve?
Yes, I’m 21 (laughs). I am striving to learn as much as I possibly can from Sebastian. He has such a well-rounded dancing and technique background, and has learned so much from many famous teachers around the world. One of my biggest goals is to be his dance protégé.

- “Man Overboard” by sP Pilanco (featuring Paris Picasso)
