HI! I'M JUNIE
I make memories through movement! As an artist, I love process and creating connections! That said, there’s nothing quite like the joy of guiding partners on the journey of learning to dance together. Prior to starting EYD, I had a fulfilling career as a professional dancer. But, when I discovered the world of social dance and ballroom, I stumbled on a niche I truly love... Now I get to marry many of the things I enjoy while playing a small role in special moments for others.
I HELP COUPLES CRAFT MEMORIES IN MOTION.
I hold a BFA in dance with a concentration in choreography. I was born in the islands, raised on the west coast and made in NY. I’ve been a dancer, entertainer, and instructor for the past 15 years. My career has allowed me to perform abroad, touring in Japan, Italy, and Germany. I've taught ballet, modern, movement therapy, ballroom and broadway style dance. I’ve had the privilege and honor of training with Black Pool World champion Artur Tarnavsky, and continue to study both Smooth and Latin dance styles.
Enhance Your Dance is less about mastering technical skill and more about curating a connection with your partner on so you can feel your best while dancing on your big day! I've been called a "couples wedding therapist" and a "love dance doula." Gain tools to set the tone for one of many collaborations to come in your marriage. I've formulated a 3 step process to give couples the confidence they need.
You’ll be in well-versed, patient hands: I've happily taught blind students, hearing impaired, incarcerated, and post-graduate mental health individuals to learn to dance. I assure you, I can teach you too! I believe in the magic of movement and the special feelings it can evoke for those watching. We often forget dance is a universal language. Don't miss this opportunity to let your guest witness your love speak for itself on the dance floor. Make it a meaningful moment you won't soon forget!
I look forward to meeting you and your special someone!
