Ricky Maalouf


Ricky Maalouf started dancing at a late age while at Arizona State University. While starting at ASU and with various NBA and WNBA teams in Arizona, he also danced with recording artist Yasmeen, who opened for Omarion, and danced for the professional dance company Automatic Response who were featured on Americas Best Dance Crew, opening for My Chemical Romance and Fergie while also working with Dillards, LRG, Kiss FM amongst others.

However, he quickly developed a true passion for teaching. His teaching has helped with several of his students having danced with artists such as Justin Bieber, Missy Elliot and more. In addition, they have been showcased on shows including So You Think You Can Dance, World Of Dance, Dancing with the Stars, Dancing with the Stars Junior, Ellen, Dance Moms, Disney’s Shake It Up and Americas Got Talent. He is grateful to have worked with several fantastic dance companies, conventions, organizations and Universities, while being fortunate enough to work with several amazing choreographers, teachers and dancers. His studio choreography has won numerous awards at the national level including Best Hip Hop Studio at The Dance Awards 2019.

Ricky spends most of his time trying to inspire and educate at studios around the country and believes in a high-energy class in which the students work hard while enjoying the process and looks forward to jumping around in class at every opportunity. He adores working with changing lives, miss kim and the whole team and looks forward to seeing you guys soon…
