Ryan started dancing at Jazz Unlimited at the age of three, having trained in all styles. He is a former member of the Next Step program and the Ensemble, in which he spent many years and graduated in 2013. After graduating from Jazz Unlimited, Ryan attended Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports, Arts, and Entertainment Management. Dance has always been Ryan’s true passion, and he is so excited and lucky to have returned to his second home at JU to share his love of dance with younger generations. Ryan continues to stay updated in the industry and train in many styles, including having been hand-selected for a closed professional tap workshop in New York City with tap icon Jared Grimes, where he received a full scholarship to DC Tap Fest from world-renowned tap icons and creators of the Syncopated Ladies tap group, Chloe and Maud Arnold. Ryan would like to extend a huge thank you to Carryl and Fred for having such a significant impact on his life by offering a space for dancers to grow, excel, and share in the love of dance. He is incredibly grateful to be back with a studio that has hit the half-century mark, an amazing accomplishment!
