MEET THE CAST

 

HALEY FITZGERALD 

Dance isn't just a hobby or a job to me. It's passion, it's expression. Dance is honestly a lifestyle for me and I couldn't imagine a life without it.  The ability to convey a personality or a person's character through the expression of dance inspires me to strive forward, empowers me to overcome much hardship, and continue to do what I do.

FUN FACT: I used to eat worms for money is elementary school. A Girls gotta do what a girls gotta do...?

ICE CREAM: Here's where I'm really boring. Vanilla bean. Maybe throw in some snicker pieces if I'm feeling a little crazy. 

FAVORITE VIDEO: So hard to choose but I'm gonna go with Yonce. It's always fun channeling your inner Beyoncé.  ( watch it )


BRANDON DUMLAO 

Dance is a universal language to me. I love how people that don't speak the same language can understand each other's feelings and perspective of art. The openness between performer and viewer that takes place excites me because art is conveyed in different ways depending on their perspectives. That's why I love dance. 

FUN FACT: I was a professional bowler as a kid and would have gone pro after high school if I didn't find dance. 

FAVORITE ICE CREAM: Coffee ice cream 

FAVORITE VIDEO: The very first one we made as a cast. It really brought me closer to everyone in the group. watch it )

WHITNEY  

I fell in love with amazing art form the minute I stepped on the stage at 5 years old dancing to "yellow polka- dot bikini". From there the rest is history! Dance is the one thing that has always been there for me, and created some of my greatest moments in my life so far. I'm grateful for Kyle and this little making moves family! 

FUN FACT: I have never been out of the country. 

FAVORITE ICE CREAM: Mint chip

FAVORITE VIDEO: Counting stars ( watch it )


GUERO CHARLES 

I started dancing at the age of 16 in Houston, Texas. I moved to LA and signed with Clear Talent Group where I felt my life take a drastic turn in the most positive direction. Since then I have been blessed to be in music videos such as Justin Bieber's "Beauty and A Beat", danced on award shows such as the MTV Video Music Awards with Beyonce and the Teen Choice Awards with Demi Lovato. I'm always feeling the need to challenge myself and by being a member of the company Dana Foglia Dance I feel like I'm always reaching for the next level.

FUN FACT: I played baseball my entire life up until I started dancing, and I come from a baseball/softball family.

FAVORITE ICE CREAM: I stopped eating large amounts of dairy but it used to be vanilla bean mixed with crushed Reese's cups and sliced almonds to top it off.

I've been dancing for 21 years and everyday I fall in love with it all over again. I've done jobs in the industry but I've learned that it's not about what you've done it's about who you inspire. Dance is my life and I'd be lost without it. 

FUN FACT: I own a 115 pound tortoise. 

FAVORITE ICE CREAM: Mint Chip!
