Victor’s teaching philosophy is and always has been that dance comes from training and education but artistry comes from experience and exploration. Dance artistry comes from dedication and hard work. Dance is never a step or a count but another opportunity to grow not only as a dancer but as an artist.
Becoming an educator takes studying, training. and experience. Victor has done them all. Victor arrived from Lima, Peru to New York City as a 7 year old with his entire life in front of him. He studied in the arts from elementary school through college. Sharpening his theater skills through the 52nd Street Project, an inner city program giving kids a full theater experience including working with top notch performers like Spaulding Gray and playwrights like Francis Ford Coppola. Studying clarinet in Junior High School, and becoming a Fiorello H. Laguardia School of the Arts Drama Department alum. Victor moved on to Tisch School of The Arts at NYU for college leaving within his first year to pursue his dance dreams.
Dance turned into a full career for him. Studying ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, jazz funk, and hip hop at New York City’s number 1 studio , Broadway Dance Center. He becomes an assistant then a teacher at the studio. Honing in his craft, he studies and teaches there for 7 years before moving to Los Angeles and using his artistry to teach at top LA studios like Millennium, Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio, now known as Legacy Dance Studio, Edge, and most recently at TMilly.
All of Victor’s extensive experience places him in the perfect spot to become an international educator. Allowing multi cultural experiences only adds to his proficiency in dance education.
