Student Spotlight: Ray Holdridge

Ray Holdridge Headshot“I joined DanceCreate about a year ago and it is one of the best decisions I have made for myself as an entertainer. Working with Maria Del Bagno has not only turned me into someone confident in their dancing abilities but has also helped me be a better actor.

I don’t find it to be a coincidence that shortly after beginning working with her I booked a print job and a Hulu commercial within a few months’ time because I had become more confident and aware of my own stage presence. I’m six feet 210 pounds and broad shouldered so when people (and casting directors) look at me they don’t see a dancer but now I love seeing the looks on people’s faces when they see my moves. There is no flinch when I see a role or audition and there is a description that requests dancers. I know I can compete.


“DanceCreate has helped open new avenues for me in terms of my casting, my art, and my career as an entertainer. If you’re looking to add to your repertoire, Maria Del Bango and DanceCreate is a great place to go.”
