He was a ballroom dance teacher for 5 years with Sandra Cameron Dance Center, the most popular ballroom center for decades.
Lincoln Center chose him to dance the original choreography of ballroom dances of Fred Astaire for a gala celebrating Astaire’s birth.
His duet he choreographed for himself and Liza Minnelli on the “Judy Garland Christmas Show” is a Youtube favorite and is shown all over the world every Christmas since it first aired.
“I would have never imagined myself dancing in front of anyone let alone performing for hundreds of people. I just wanted to share in the smiles I saw light up everyone’s faces when they were dancing.”
He later came to find his true love for Salsa as a student at Salsa Fever On2 in 2010. Under the tutelage of Mario B and his team, Johanny gained the skills to go on to perform for numerous dance schools and troupes.
“I strive to inspire those around me and help them see the same beauty I see in Salsa.”
With hundreds of performances under his belt, Johanny uses this plethora of experiences to encourage and motivate people through their own dance journeys.
