Contemporary Jazz 2/3

This class is taught by:

Julio Fuentes

Julio is no stranger to the performing arts and has been singing since the age of 4. Originally from the Philippines, he belongs to a family of performers and grew up exposed to show business, thanks to his parents.

Although dance came late in his life at the age of 19, Julio immediately fell in love with it and started training in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, and hiphop. He has had the privilege of performing, coaching, choreographing and adjudicating all over the USA, Canada, Europe, Guam, and the Philippines. His choreography has garnered him 1st place overall and many choreography awards in competitions across Canada and the United States. His credits include Fashion Rocks Canada, America’s Best Dance Crew Canadian Tour, Two From Galilee, adjudicating for the International Dance Challenge, Dance Olympus, Thunderstruck, Dance Manitoba and many others.

In recent years, Julio has really been motivated to inspire others to be storytellers, both as choreographers and as dancers, and seeks to help others dance beyond what they feel their bodies can do. Julio hopes to continue traveling with his work and be inspired through working with different artists and dancers.

Julio is currently the director and founder of The Aviary, a performance-based company which started in September 2014 and is based out of Harbour Dance Centre.

Watch for Julio in the upcoming production of In The Heights at Arts Club Theatre in the spring of 2015.

Keiran Bohay

Keiran Bohay was raised in the small town of Wainwright, Alberta, where he took his first tap class at age eight and instantly fell in love with performing. He then began training in various dance styles such as jazz, lyrical, hip hop and ballet. At the age of 13 he took a brief break from dance festivals to perform in The Citadel Theatre’s production of Peter Pan and Oliver, giving him his first taste of professional work. Throughout his high school days he remained active in local theatre and dance training and productions. After graduation Keiran moved to Edmonton, Alberta where he advanced his dance technique under Shelley Tookey. Keiran progressed quickly and made his move to Vancouver* to train with The Source Dance Company, under direction of Joanne Pesusich. His talent did not go unnoticed and after only a short time in Vancouver, Pam Rosa and Moe Brody offered him a job at Harbour Dance Centre as a Tap and Broadway Jazz instructor. Known for his energy, comedic personality and unique style, Keiran has gone on to teach throughout Western Canada.
