Ryan Jago, Guest Artist

Ryan Jago entered the dance scene as a ballet dancer, being a member of Ballet Philippines, one of Manila’s most prestigious ballet companies. The ballroom world appealed to him many years later. He soon proved himself, becoming the Philippine Dance Sport National Amateur Latin Champion in 2005.

He decided to join the Pro-Am competitions in the US with his coach and teacher, Belinda Adora in the A Age Division. From Round 1, he made it to the Finals of Ohio StarBall and USDC, both very challenging events.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education and was given recognition by his university with a special Artist Award.

Ryan wears many hats at the studio. He is Avant Guest Artist and Senior Amateur partner to Michaela “Pinky” Puno. He also shares his other artistic skills, creating informative event videos and singlehandedly decorating our place for special occasions to which the guests have only one word — “Wow!”
