JULEON
INSTRUCTOR

Juleon has been dancing salsa and bachata for nearly 10 years and many other dances (merengue, semba, kizomba, cumbia, kompa, and freestyle) for much of his life. Taking a unique approach to dance, Juleon focuses more on concepts, not patterns. An IT Consultant and Project Manager by trade, Juleon enjoys and excels at breaking down the fundamentals of timing, body movement, and connection so that students can use those principles to build their own styles! Juleon has taught classes from Colombia to Singapore and is excited to share his love of the dance and history with the people of Fort Worth. When he’s not dancing or working, Juleon enjoys pondering the connections between life, relationships, and partner dancing.

ANAIS
INSTRUCTOR

 

Anais started dancing salsa and merengue socially at a young age with family and at karate functions. She learned punto panameño, a Panamanian Folklore dance from the age of 6 in her hometown of Houston, Texas. During this time, she began performing in parades, competitions and in other community events. In high school, she joined her school team, the Marshall Mystics where she learned to dance Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop  and Bachata. She pursued her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree at the University of Texas - Arlington. While there, she joined the Latin American Student Organization’s dance team and continued to strengthen her skills. Anais currently performs on Timba Tumbao’s performance dance team under Johan and Alyssa’s instruction. Her favorite dances are Salsa and Bachata.

ABOUT PURA VIDA

 

Pura Vida Afro-Latin Dance is passionate about the history, culture, language, and the dances of Afro- or Latin countries. Having traveled to over 20 countries in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean, PVALD instructors have the goal of bringing the experience, knowledge, and culture of the greater Afro-Latin Diaspora to you! At Pura Vida, we focus on concepts, not patterns and on history and cultural respect, not movement assimilation.

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

Private instruction is a fun way that you can super-charge your dance experience! Private instruction is designed to focus on YOU and YOUR dance needs, and the session moves at YOUR pace! Whether you’re looking to move quicker than the pace of the group classes, looking to catch up to where other students are, or just prefer to learn at your own pace in a more private setting, these classes focus on individual attention to maximize your growth. If you’re not where you want to be in your dance journey, schedule your private today!
