RJ De Claro has been dancing mainstream since 2007. His first show was “SIS” hosted by Gelly & Janice Debelen with the group LXD. Then after a year, he went dancing with the Abztract dancers. By December 2008, he was asked if he could join the MANOEUVRES and he immediately joined it. He served the group for 13 years. He got the chance to stage direct some of the biggest ph tv shows like Eat Bulaga, SOP, Asap. RJ choreographed big concerts of Vice Ganda, Alden Richards, Richard Poon, Jesica Sanchez, Gary V, etc. RJ is now a single dance artist
De Claro just felt to pursue dancing. Dancing is what he really likes to do. He is been dreaming to be a part of the MANOEUVRES since grade school. RJ’s creative process is very simple. He is at his best especially when he does class/ choreography on the spot. He doesn’t bring work at home. Working under pressure is his main thing.
De Claro feels that when people are thanking him for the lesson he has shared and seeing former students teach and mentoring newbies are his biggest achievements. He also got the chance to teach and stage direct the “UMD” STREETBOYS & the “MNVRS PIONEERS” at once.
As of the moment, he is an in-house dance coach at tv5’s POP PINOY and also one of the Chuzi pioneers of the Chuzi dance app.
