Named as one of Dance Magazine’s Top 25 To Watch for 2016, NY and LA-based freelance artist, Norbert De La Cruz III, has lured his community and audiences’ hearts, generating nationwide choreographic attention at the age of 22. Born in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines and raised in East LA, he began studying an array of dance styles at age 13. He is fascinated in exploring how the stylistic worlds of both classical and modern dance compromise; giving rise and fall to one another. Norbert was privately trained in Cecetti and Vagonova techniques by renowned ballet masters Vera Ninkovic and Marat Daukayev. His eclectic training includes Everybody Dance! Gabriella Foundation, Marat Daukayev School of Ballet, American Ballet Theatre NYC, San Francisco Ballet School, Miami City Ballet, LINES, Northwest Professional Dance Project, NDT Summer Dans Course, the LA County HS for the Arts and received his Bachelors degree in Fine Arts in Dance from The Juilliard School (2010).
