Victor Maguad

(Misty Wonderland)

Victor started dancing at the age of 7, training under the supervision of Luther Perez, Tony Fabella and Eddie Elejar at the Manila Dance Center where he was given a chance to join Ballet Philippines’ production of Shoes++ in 2000.  He played Michael in Edna Vida’s Peter Pan in 2001 and essayed John when the production was restaged in 2010.  He joined CCP Dance School in 2004 as a full scholar at the young age of 11 under the tutelage of Noordin Jumalon. He has danced various male variations for the school and company including Basilio in Don Quixote, Prince Florimund in The Sleeping Beauty, Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake, and the male variation in Paquita.  In 2007, he competed at the National Music Competition for Young Artists (NAMCYA) and won 3rd place in the Juniors Ballet category.  For the company, his prominent roles include Peasant Pas de Quatre in Giselle, Gawigawen in Manhid, and one of the Twins in Gabriel Barredo’s Opera. 

In 2014 he was a competitor at the USA Jackson International Ballet Competition and won 2nd place at the 1st CCP Ballet Competition. 

Misty was discovered while on break from her hall monitor duties doing Comaneci flips to Mariah Carey songs at the age of 13. Since then her life has been the stuff of Disney fantasylands, complete with a handsome prince.  This prodigy has broken barriers, most notably, the sound barrier with her fast, fast footwork.  Her athleticism is the stuff of wispy dreams, but she has given hints to mere mortals on how to achieve her physicality in her book “A Ballerina’s Tail.”  Always the best dressed in her circle, her charmed life- filled with crimson and clover- includes mentions in most social registers for her exploits on the town.  

With endorsements lining up, and fame and fortune at her feet, Misty would like to give one word of advice to her young fans on how to live the dream.  “With hard work, talent and a solid insta following, you too can make it.”
