GUEST FACULTY

At just 22 years of age, Gabe De Guzman stands as a beacon of dedication, talent, and passion in the dance world. Initiating his journey at the age of 5, Gabe's trajectory in dance has seen him evolve from a prodigious talent to an internationally acclaimed dancer and educator.


Gabe's exceptional talent has found him sharing stages with music industry icons such as Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and the global sensation BTS. Notably, he was one of the chosen few to perform at the 49th Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside the legendary Missy Elliott and Katy Perry.



His choreographic genius shines through in acclaimed television shows like "So You Think You Can Dance" (SYTYCD), CBS’ "Come Dance With Me," and numerous specials on Disney and Nickelodeon. Additionally, his footprints in the acting realm include notable appearances in projects like "Boo, Bitch" (2022), "Goliath" (2021), "He's All That" (2021), and "The Little Mermaid Live!" (2019).



Having taught on renowned platforms Gabe brings a combination of technical expertise and heartfelt mentorship to his classes. Recognizing the pressures and challenges dancers face, he emphasizes personal evolution, encouraging every dancer to transcend their boundaries and find their unique expression.


With Gabe, it's more than just dance—it's a transformative experience. Whether it's the intricate detailing of a movement or the exhilarating energy of a dance battle, his classes promise growth, inspiration, and a celebration of the art of dance.




Join us at KAR Dance Convention as we proudly present Gabe De Guzman as our Guest Faculty for the 2023 season. Brace yourself for an unforgettable journey of rhythm, movement, and soulful expression.
