MICHELLE BURKE

Dance Instruction, Choreography

“’We are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true’. I believe Alan Guño is proving this quote I once read to be true with his life and much of what he does. When Alan first walked into my dance class about five years ago I figured he was just there to get some exercise. It turns out that dance was just one step in this great project he's been working on; A career in entertainment that he has wished and worked for.

“Working with Alan has truly made the many things I've done to get to this point worth while. I started dancing when I was three and eventually graduated with a major in dance. I danced on cruise ships shortly after graduating which were good experiences. I later worked at theme parks, including Walt Disney World, and a wonderful variety show before moving to Los Angeles. Here in Los Angeles I work regularly as a Magicians Assistant, and a Dance Instructor in Burbank, where I met Alan. I've also had the opportunity to work in commercials, music videos, and concerts. My performance experiences, teaching, and observance of many other performances have helped expand my creativity.

“I love teaching. Alan has been my most loyal and hard-working student, which shows in his technique. Most of all I love performing, and my continual work with Alan. I love Alan's music, and I'm one of his biggest fans.”

JOE PHILLIPS

"Boy Diva" Original Illustrations

With the influence of sand and surf, mountains and city life around him, Joe Phillips makes his home in sunny San Diego, California. Originally an Atlanta native, Joe draws from his years as an illustrator and comic book artist. The artistic influences of J.C. Leyendecker and Norman Rockwell infuse with Gustav Klimt and Rip Colt - along with Joe's sense of whimsy - to create his signature style. "I've always been attracted to drawing the human form even as a child," he notes. "I like taking snapshots of everyday things I see in my head and showing them from a different perspective. It still blows me away that people are so interested in my art.

Alan is also very honored by Joe’s contributions for Alan’s annual holiday card.  For the past few years, Joe’s artwork has graced the front of the card, spreading holiday cheer in a very special way.
