San Diego native Tony Ray’s dance journey began when he walked into an open session and was introduced to House. He has won several world-renowned battles and competitions, including Juste Debout in Paris 2019 (House Category), Step Ya Game Up in New York 2019, VersaStyle Dance Festival 2018 (both Hip Hop and House categories) – the list goes on! Tony spends most of his time teaching in Los Angeles and San Diego, but he has taught all over the world as well. On top of teaching at a University in China for 4 months, he’s also taught in Japan, Korea, France, Canada, and New York. He attributes most of his growth within dance to the impactful guidance he has received from his peers and mentors.
