Ron HowardProfessional Dancer
Ron Howard grew up in Southern California in the 80's. He adapted the street style of hip hop from trying to break dance as a kid with a piece of cardboard and a circle of friends, to mimicking the music videos of Michael Jackson and MC Hammer. His strength in freestyling landed him a gig in 1997 with MC Hammer. Ron has remained on his dance team ever since, currently as co-lead choreographer and dancer. He loves to choreograph and teach; his passion and love for his craft is contagious. Ron moved to Arizona to raise his two children with his wife, Susan.
