Junior & Carolina


Junior Aquino was born in 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. At 19, he became a representative of bachata in his hometown of Bonao when he started organizing competitions and other events.
Junior has been teaching bachata and salsa since 2008 in the Dominican Republic and is seen as one of the key people in the bachata scene in the DR.
Since 2014 he has taught and performed at a number of congresses all over the world. He is the founder and owner of Keloke Dance Company who organizes Keloke Bachata Festival, the first all Dominican festival in Scandinavia, and Keloke Bachata Adventures, a dance tour in four different locations in the Dominican Republic. Carolina Bustamante was born in Colombia in 1991 and from a young age she started to fall in love with dance. In 2007, Carolina left Colombia and moved to the north of Sweden, but continued learning and taking dance classes by regularly travelling to the capital.
In 2012, Carolina decided to move to Stockholm permanently to dedicate herself fully to the dance. Starting from zero, with only a desire to dance and evolve, she was soon working at Stockholm Salsa Dance teaching salsa, bachata and kizomba. She started travelling to congresses and festivals all over the world to learn more and decided to dedicate herself fully to bachata.
During 2015 and 2016, Carolina spent many months in the Dominican Republic taking classes and dancing while falling even more in love with the Dominican culture. She has since then developed her own style and enchants dancers and students all over the world with her femininity and sensualness. Since 2019, she leads her own team of ladies, BachaQueens, with some of the best female bachata dancers in Sweden.
