Bianca Sandoval is a twenty one year old Miami-Dade College student, majoring in Business. Bianca 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. After enrolling in Pre-Kindergarten, she performed every year in her elementary school's' talent show, bringing energy and life to the stage.
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 at local Competitions. She auditioned for the Hip Hop team at her High School, Coral Reef, and was selected to perform for school events as a "Cuda Flava."
Throughout her Freshman year, she began to question why she only danced Hip Hop, when there were so many other styles of dance in which she could express herself. 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, and Jazz group numbers; competing with her Studio; DU, at competitions such as, Starbound, West Coast Dance Explosion, Starpower, and registering for Monsters Hip Hop Workshops.
Her technique had improved in such a short span, she began competing Solos, placing mostly Platinum and 1st. Because, she had been accepted into the International Baccalaureate Program, it was not permitted for her to audition for Coral Reef's Cudettes Dance Team. But during her sophomore year of High School, she transferred to her home school of Southwest Miami Senior High to audition for the 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 graduated Summa Cum Laude, top 10% of her class in 2009. Upon graduating, Bianca was accepted into the Nursing Program at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. There, she focused on her studies and taught Jazz and Hip Hop at local studios. Although, she loved the idea of helping the community, she couldn’t help but miss her hometown of Miami and the dance opportunities left behind. Bianca moved back to Miami and began teaching at several dance studios and is presently studying Business, with the intention and drive to open her own dance studio after graduation.
Thankfully, LDDF has given her the opportunity to learn and grow, as an Instructor, as well as a person. Bianca 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.
