Junior Aquino was born in Bonao, the Dominican Republic, in 1987 and took his first dance steps as a child. Even as a young boy, Junior was captivated by the rhythms and started dancing bachata and salsa in parks, squares, streets and wherever music was played. For many years he studied bachata, salsa and other traditional and folkloric dance styles at Plaza de la Cultura in Bonao and at numerous dance schools all over the Dominican Republic.
