Meet Junior

Originally from Paris, Junior is probably the most watched b-boy of all time, with over 50 million views on his YouTube videos. His original style and chill personality make him instantly recognizable to dancers across the globe. He’s also super active, forever on the go: always performing, battling, and teaching workshops, while keeping his great mood and passion for having fun!

1. What’s the best song for warming up?

It depends… some people go for something ‘soft’ for stretching and focusing, while other people prefer more ‘dynamic’ stuff to get their energy levels up. For me, it depends on the mood!

2. Favorite thing to do when there are no cameras around?

To joke! I like to really enjoy the day, cos we see each other a lot but in different venues, different atmospheres, different gigs… so we’re always busy. When we have time, we like to joke around ;-)

3. What advice would you give your younger self?

I would say to give it your all. To give the best you have for your passion, for what you really love. To really appreciate things and to enjoy every day.

4. What’s your favorite Italian dish?

Mhmm… it used to be gnocchi but now I’m more into pizza!

5. What’s your biggest fear?

Snakes!

6. What’s your ultimate dream?

Nothing really comes to my mind right now cos like, for example, I’ve traveled a lot. I’ve been to almost 80 countries… I need to travel more, for sure, but I guess my dream is to continue doing what I love (dancing), for as long as I can.

7. Is this your first time in Rome? If it were a color, which color would it be?

No, it’s not! But it’s been a long time since I last visited. I always travel for short periods of time so I haven’t actually seen a lot, but I’d love to!

If Rome were a color… it would be purple.
