That is what this business represents. Together and United. #Unified #UnifiedFam – CC Cordero, Owner

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

Throughout his years of training, he has experience in popping, waving, tutting, strutting, grooves, urban choreography, and even technical styles such as ballet and jazz. All these styles contribute to J4’s authentic movement, and will push the limits of those hungry to learn!
