Her professional dance career did not end upon her arrival to Canada. Through her hard work and dedication, Milda earned 1st place in the Toronto International Champion Challenge, as well is in the Mississauga open and the “La Coupe du Defi” held in Montreal.
Her most recent accomplishment was her role in the musical “Dirty Dancing”, an opportunity which allowed her to really let her true colour shine ever so brightly on the stage of the Royal Alexandra theatre.
Since moving from the beautiful city of Montreal, Junyan began teaching, dancing and choreographing in Toronto in August 2010. Within a year, he has founded Toronto’s first Zouk school, choreographed numerous routines presented locally and abroad, and has already made major contributions to the Toronto dance community.
Having taught dance since 19 years of age, his passion for dance and his understanding of social dancing is broad as well as his knowledge of Latin music and history. Junyan tirelessly advocates a focus on partner connection and how music and dance interrelate. He has been a guest judge for various competitions around the world.
A truly diverse dancer, Junyan's current love is Brazilian Zouk, and he is boldly trailblazing the Zouk scene in Toronto. He also performs & teaches salsa (on1, on2, NY-style, casino rueda) and tango (salon, milonguero, and nuevo).
