JC Laraya

My full name is Janeil Carla Laraya but to make it easy, people call me JC. I moved to United States in 2007 from the Philippines. I am currently a full time employee for retail tech company in Silicon Valley for 8 years. I found dancing as my passion in 2017 when my good friend and co-worker of mine refer me to a GROOV3 class back in 2017.

When I was growing up, I watched my sisters dance and compete. I was always there to support them. I saw them win and lose in competitions but one thing that I notice was no matter what, they never lose that passion towards dancing. That’s why even I don’t dance like how other dancers did, I have big appreciation for dance. I still remember when there was a big urge for me to leave varsity swim team to join a dance group back when I was in college. Deep inside I really wanted to dance and experience the passion my sisters had for it. I brought that appreciation all my life and fast forward I found GROOV3. I was a student since 2017 then became a certified instructor October 2019.

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” – Martha Graham
