Bianca Sandoval has shown her love of dance since the age of two. At three years old, she began taking Flamenco and Cumbia, a Colombian Folkloric dance under the direction of Anita Herrero. Bianca began taking classes and performing in recitals with Dance Unlimited Studio at the age of 8. At which time she began dancing various genres of the artistry; everything from Ballet to Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Lyrical. At the age of twelve, Bianca decided to dance Hip Hop, and only Hip Hop. She enjoyed Hip Hop so much, that she started participating and competing in local competitions. Thereafter, she re-enrolled in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical and Contemporary at DU. At the age of 15, she was back on track, performing Lyrical, Contemporary, Jazz, and Hip Hop group numbers; competing with her Studio; at competitions such as, Starbound, West Coast Dance Explosion, Starpower, and registering for Monsters Hip Hop Workshops.
Bianca began competing Solos, placing mostly Platinum. At this point, she auditioned for the Southwest Miami Senior High School Illusions Dance Team, under the direction of Ingrid Houvenaeghel. Being part of the Team instilled a deeper passion for dance, since the dancers had the opportunity to choreograph for Pep Rallies, Dance Shows, and Solo Shows among each other. This is when her creativity and keen eye for choreography began to develop and mature, as she did.
Bianca excels in all genres of choreography, creating anything from dark, to energetic, uplifting and inspiring pieces. She enjoys instructing young girls and boys to create and explore dance as an outlet, in order to make a connection between dance and a healthy lifestyle. Expressing herself through dance compliments her commitment for fitness and the Arts. Presently, she is aspiring to instill her passion for dance and fitness in others, to promote a positive frame of mind.
