Passion for dancing » Manila Bulletin Entertainment




  • Valeen with M Studio students

  • Choreographer Francis Talala, Valeen and the author

Dancing is one of the many talents of Valeen Montenegro so it’s no wonder many televiewers are mesmerized every time she has a production number on “Sunday PinaSaya.” (Gagaling ka pa if papaturo ka sa’kin girl, chos!)

“I just really fell in love with dancing. ’Di naman ako nag-aral, basta salang lang ako agad,” Valeen said. (Ako kaya, kelan isasalang?!)

This passion has inspired her to put up M Studio at the Plaza Paseo de Magallanes in Makati City. (M for MR.FU?!)

“My dance studio is the ideal place for people who have the passion for dancing and physical fitness. We offer different types of dance and choreography classes for male, female, the young, and the young at heart.”

The studio reflects its owner’s style and image. “It’s homey with comfortable interiors. It has a chic lounge and coffee bar. It also boasts of having state of the art flooring, mirrors and equipment,” she said. (Makapag-kape nga dyan sa studio mo!)

It is her first business venture with help from her long-time boyfriend Selu Lozano, who also has his own Fitness Center and bar beside the M Studio. (Ay dyan ako kay Selu pupunta!)

“It is not easy (running your own business). Managing people, making clients happy and having them stay with our classes is such a challenge,” Valeen explained.

She clarified having her boyfriend for a business partner does not mean they are already planning marriage. (Parang gusto ko pakasalan yang jowa mo, teh!)

“We have not discussed that yet. We just want all the businesses running even if we are not that hands-on anymore,” Valeen said. (Pwede ’yung hands ko!)

The Kapuso talent thanked her stint in show business for being a great help to her new endeavor.

“It helps because I get to market myself together with the studio, and even my friends from showbiz help me promote the studio.” (Gawin mo kong endorser niyan bilang pangarap kong maging Dancing Queen, push!)
