From emulating MJ as a child in his hometown of Baguio City, Philippines, to the start of his freestyle foundation in popping, locking, and b-boying in high school in the suburbs of Philly, to today—Paolo Aragona’s movement vocabulary is always evolving.
While attending university in Philadelphia, Paolo frequented freestyle jams, trained at Koresh Dance and the Funky Sole Fundamentals, as well as experimented with jazz, modern, ballroom, and latin at the University of the Arts and University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after graduating, Paolo moved to New York City and has since trained at Broadway Dance Center, Monsters of Hip-Hop, and industry and community workshops in the tri-state area.
A proud member of the east coast dance community, Paolo is no stranger to the stage. He is an alum of EPIC Motion Dance Company and Strictly Funk Dance Company, a former director and alum of iNERT!A Dance Team, and currently a dancer for Funkanometry NY.
Some of his notable performance highlights include, the 2014 US Open Opening Ceremony with Fitz & the Tantrums and Rhythm City Entertainment, The Filipino Channel’s One Kapamilya Go 2014 Concert at the Prudential Center, the choreography round of So You Think You Can Dance’s Season 7 New York auditions, Funkanometry SF’s The Sock Hop 6 Showcase, Culture Shock DC’s International Choreographers’ Showcase, and World of Dance NY 2013.
Advertising copywriter by day, dancer by night, Paolo is absolutely thrilled to share his imagination and groove with his fellow movers!
