About Michael Young
MICHAEL YOUNG, Company Apprentice, was born in the Philippines, and started dancing hiphop/contemporary hiphop at church events.
He was a student at Irma Suárez Ruiz's Introduction to Spanish Dance at Northeastern Illinois University, where he is currently enrolled. He attended Ensemble Español's company rehearsal with guest artist Paloma Gomez, and was inspired by the passion and emotion of her work with the dancers.
He realized this was something he wanted to explore. He auditioned for the Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater where he was awarded a scholarship for the 2016-17 Season. In September of 2017, he was promoted to Apprentice.
Michael still dances Hip hop and loves to play sports and listen to music in his spare time
