About Ogus:
Ogus started his passion for dance in 2001. Deciding to pursue his love for dance, he became actively involved in Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s dance club, New Revolving Age (NRA). Taking up the role of a Vice-President in the club under the tutelage of Ms Ann Tan, he led his committee through a tough year of competitions and performances including co-managing Danzation 2008. His journey in NRA has taught him valuable lessons on handling people and further enticed him into dedicating himself to educate future generations. He later took up the job of an Alumni Instructor to the club and has since touched the lives of many of his students.

Ogus first joined BOTS in clinching champion for Dance Free Competition, 2nd Runner-up for Suntec 2011 and 6th Place for World Supremacy Battlegrounds 2011, which is the biggest and most prestigious international street dance competition in the Southern Hemisphere. His team later collaborated with Freekzy Nutz to form FreekzyBOTS and went on to attain 2nd Runner-up for Singapore Dance Delight 2013 and 2014.

In 2013, Ogus joined NRA Legacy in a local dance competition Super24 and emerged as champions earning them prestigious recognition from dancers island-wide. Later in 2014, he set up a dance company, Legacy Dance Co. together with 2 crewmates. The vision of the company was to provide a learning platform to groom younger generations of dancers and this was kept in line with the knowledge they learnt from their years spent in NRA.

As a Choreographer, Ogus focuses on the emotional aspect of his dancers and create pieces that have been favored by many. Some of his favorite routines include TheOutrage; The Carnival Act, Battlescars; Danzation 2012 and both routines from his DanzPeople Recital 2013 and 2014. Commercially, Ogus have danced for various local and international artistes like Derrick Hoh, Stacy Angie, Taufik Batisah and Julie Tan. He is also the choreographer for the first Singapore Idol, Taufik Batisah on his various tracks including his latest hit, Awakkatmane.
