Julius Solano, born of Peruvian decent, has been dancing from the time he could walk. True to his heritage he grew up dancing salsa, bachata, meriengue, cumbia, and piricio ripiao. The rhythm of Latin music flows in his veins. Growing up in New York fueled his dance addiction and at age 10 began competing in Hip Hop, winning various local contests. As an adult Julius fell in love with Ballroom dancing, appreciating the beauty of two bodies moving in complete harmony. Julius is certified in several dance syllabi and has had much success competing in rising star & open professional American Rhythm competitions (cha cha, rumba , swing, bolero and mambo) and is currently preparing to compete in American Smooth (foxtrot, waltz, tango, and Viennese waltz). Julius’ love of dancing and musicality is infectious and sure to make learning any dance style a fun time for all.
