Johmel Opeta

Originally from Los Angeles but lived here since 2005 with my family. I've been dancing since I was 18 years old and never had any experience with a studio until I was 21. I'm Polynesian German Chinese mixed. I love being active and doing outdoor activities. I love to sing play piano, play sports, eating, and love being around my family. My style of dance is in Dancehall Waacking Voguing. I love to dance because it humbles me and really takes me to a different level of freedom. I am a choreographer for The Playground dance studio and one of the directors for our junior team called Recess Pieces. I also dance for our competing team, Canvas Disciples.
