Good Vocal Work and Your Teeth
Enjoy the newest blog post from Mark Ruhala!
“The alignment of the dental principles with the vocal principles makes perfect sense. Dentistry works with many of the same body parts that singers use. Dr. Lin states, “The health of our jaw, facial structure, and airways starts with what we eat.” (p. 45) He stresses how the modern diet of processed foods has proven dangerous for our oral health. He recommends the common-sense foods that too many people overlook: whole foods (not the store, which is deceptive in their advertising and rides its reputation on healthy foods but still sells conventional foods right next to organic foods. But that is another story). David had this same philosophy and his kitchen at his home studio was always filled with wonderful aromatic scents from whatever he had cooking or brewing.” Click here to Read More

Mark Ruhala, Founder and Artistic Director
 In 2004, Broadway and Entertainment veteran Mark Ruhala, along with his wife Celina, founded the Ruhala Performing Arts Center. It was their own personal effort to bring a professional art, dance, and theater arts studio to the Lansing area: an area that Mr. Ruhala has always known as home. As owners and Co-Artistic Directors, Mark and Celina continue to feed their passion and excitement for the arts in molding today’s young minds, bodies, and-in many cases-careers, by sharing their talents and professional experiences with their students. Their enthusiasm is matched only by the passion they both have for the arts, for entertainment, and most of all…for the people they serve.
