Ryan started dancing at the age of two, predominantly studying ballet and modern. When he was 11 he began training vocationally at Elmhurst Ballet School. Ryan has trained at Elmhurst for the past five years and has just begun his first year of Upper School. In March 2016 Ryan won the Phyllis Bedells Bursary and since then has been looking for other opportunities to challenge himself and gain performance experience. Ryan's ultimate goal is to be employed in a professional classical ballet company.
