Youth Program Director: Ryan Ta

DTB-37For someone from Oakland, California who’s been dancing since he was a kid, both dance and the Bay play a huge role in Ryan’s life. Both breakdancing and urban choreography have helped him discover his creativity, strengthen his friendships, and grow as an artist – now, he’d like to give back to the community by sharing the benefits dance has brought him with others. As a coordinator of Dance the Bay’s Youth Program, Ryan’s goal is to light the sparks of inspiration that will drive the next generation of dancers!
