Jazz Funk

Ricky Lam was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.  As a child, he always had the passion to dance.  Inspired by Britney Spears, he took his first dance class at a YMCA at age 14.  His training progressed from there, and in January 2011, Ricky moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career as a dancer/choreographer.  Since arriving in LA, he has worked for and performed with Cherice Pempengco, Ryan Adames, Brooklyn Jai, Gil Duldulao, Matt Cady, Beau Fournier, Mischief Makers and for several other artists/events.  He has trained under 24-VII Danceforce Studios (Marcelo Pacleb), Hypersquad Dance Company (Jason Ulep), Mischief Makers (Beau Fournier), Gil Duldulao and Mark Kanemura, among others.  Aside from teaching at EDGE Performing Arts Center, Ricky has also taught at other L.A studios and NUVO Dance Convention.  He would like to say thank you and mahalo to everyone who has affected his life.  Never give up because everything is possible!
