Tianna Tettemer + Amable Hernandez are the founders of “Sol y Luna – Acro + Dance Company”.
Amable is an extraordinarily talented dancer from Pinar del Rio, Cuba. He studied dance at the EIA (Escuela Instructora de Arte) for 4 years where he also studied percussion and theatre. He was a performer at the Cabaret Continental in Varadero for 2 years where his dedication, hardwork, and ambition led him to becoming the principle dancer. Amable is a master of all styles Cuban dance; traditional salsa, Afro-Cuban, and popular – rumba, palo, gaga, Orishas, casino, mambo, and more. He came to Canada in 2011, and has taught and performed in and around Hamilton, Brantford, Kitchener-Waterloo, and now the Ottawa Valley.
In 2014, Tianna lived in Mexico with a non-profit organization and her love of the Latin American culture stuck deep in her heart. When she returned to Canada, she moved to Toronto and began finding ways to weave her love of Latin culture in with her life here in Canada. Salsa on St. Clair was a big start to that. She volunteered with different dance schools, danced all day soaking up any steps she could learn, and began going to socials around the city. But Tianna’s movement background wasn’t in dance - Tianna was a competitive gymnast for over 10 years and after her retirement from gymnastics she began training in Acrobatics + Acroyoga. Tianna has taught Acroyoga for different yoga teacher trainings, performed, and taught classes in the US as well as various places in Ontario.
Together Tianna + Amable have blended their skills + passions (after meeting at Salsa on St. Clair) and now teach & perform a blend of their two passions Acrobatics + Salsa.
