Life is a succession of choices that one must live to understand certain meanings, many are easier, others more complex and others very difficult, and this time we have a Venezuelan dancer who can show us that everything is possible with having a strong fighting spirit and perseverance, her name is Andreyna Hernandez.
Andreyna was born on September 17, 1991 in Venezuela, studies accounting, practices swimming and is the mother of two little girls; She tells us that during her childhood she felt great enthusiasm for dance and physical activities, for this reason she became a dancer and managed to be a dance instructor at an academy, together with her boyfriend Robert Terán.
Robert Terán tells us that he and Andreyna were trained for 10 years at the Salsa & Ashé Academy and decided 6 years ago together with Andreyna to found their own academy called Fback Latino, where both are the directors and / or teachers, which is located in the vicinity of the Agua Salud station in La Cañada in Caracas, Venezuela, in June 2015, with the purpose of creating a new dance space where they can teach, “there is nothing more satisfactory than the person who learns to dance deposits all your confidence in you and achieve that goal by overcoming the penalty ”; There they teach Bachata, Salsa Casino, Kizomba and they also give a comprehensive course for children where they will have a teaching of various types of dances including ballet and contemporary dance, regardless of whether or not you have any knowledge of some of these types of dances; They mention that both they and their students have participated in competitions, although in Andreyna’s case it was mostly when she was at the Salsa & Ashé Academy on a national and international level, such as the competition in Cancun and Cuba.

During the course of time, Andreyna Hernández faced something that no one should face … on June 26, 2016 he had a terrible accident near his academy, where a tree fell on him, specifically on his legs giving a 360 ° turn to his life, affecting his profession and his day, he tells us… “That day that changed my life was because a tree fell on me, precisely where a few people and I were located. The tree falls right where I was sitting (on a ping pong table), and since everything happened very quickly I could not get my whole body off the table, my legs were trapped, being conscious, I thought I was going to lose both legs because of the strong impact I received … after this, many people tell me that God does not send tests to those who cannot overcome them ”
“This transition was not easy, since an accident that many think and wonder why it happened to me? … that even I ask myself at some point … be like that in the first photo, and that of the night in the morning life changes you is strong ”
“I would never say that this situation would be easy, because of course losing some part of the body is a bit difficult to assimilate. Adapt to doing things in a different way, to looking in the mirror and looking different. To the different looks of the people on the street …. ”
“But as my beautiful Super Coach @athletics_swim says to get toxic people out of the way, live life regardless of others. So … to live life, which is one. The disability is mental. There is no excuse. Because wanting is power. ”
Despite all this tragic event, he thanks God for having a second chance, thanks to the support he received from various academies that contributed to his recovery and to be able to enjoy his life of course, with a new physical condition that is not an impediment to carry out her activities, although she admits that she does more things on a larger scale than before the accident, surprising all those around her both within her social and / or family circle and her followers in the different social networks she owns, as we could observe in her different TikTok videos that went viral, such as: a dance event dancing salsa casino and dancing during her pregnancy… something new and incredible for all who see it.
Currently Andreyna Hernandez is not only the mother of a little girl who is her greatest motivation, but she is also a swimming athlete and who continues with her passion which is dance, the only thing that a person needs to have faith, love, perseverance, strength , positive mind.
He points out that “We all have our casualties from time to time, including myself. But the important thing about everything is not to stay down, the key is to get up and continue the path with your head held high with energy that life continues. Regardless of what they will say. Feeling comfortable with yourself as we are and with what we do is enough ”
Right now in 2021, both are giving their dance classes complying with the security measures during the covid-19 pandemic with the use of face masks and other measures, which is a mutual benefit for both the instructors and the students to clear up of the confinement and to be able to release both the tension and the style that one has inside with the practice of the dance steps.
