Yanet Fuentes

“The honesty of the judges and their comments make me a stronger dancer”

HOW DID YOU GET INTO DANCE?

Well from an early age I was doing gymnastics, and when I was eight I went to my mother and asked if I could take dance lessons – I was always very feminine – and I went to dance school in Havana from 11 to 18, and a month after I graduated I came to London.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE KIND OF MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO DANCE?

A mixture of Latin with contemporary and modern. Being Cuban, Latin and salsa rhythm is very natural for me.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST DANCING FEAR?

Blacking out – forgetting a routine.

BEST PHYSICAL FEATURE?

I don’t know… my smile.

WHAT’S YOUR WORST HABIT IN DANCE?

I’m too critical of myself, I very rarely see the good that I do.

ON STAGE, WHAT’S BEEN YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?

Once my costume fell off and I had to complete the routine with my top exposed. It was so embarrassing – but at least I finished the routine!

WHY DID YOU ENTER THIS COMPETITION?

I really wanted to prove to myself my worth as a dancer. I’m so pleased I reached the live shows now, and whatever happens, happens.
