ABOUT RONNY DUTRA
Ronny began dancing at age fifteen in Brasilia, Brazil. He has been privileged to train and work with some of Brazil’s key instructors, most notably, Jaime Aroxa. In 2012 he became a wildly popular instructor and choreographer in one of the most prestigious dance studios in New York, Dance With Me USA and was also invited to lecture in dance congresses on topics of Brazilian and American Styles. He has taught at various congresses including NYC ZOUK FESTIVAL and has performed all over.

Ronny’s approach to performing arts is both technical and artistic. He develops custom-made paths for coaching all kinds of artists.
