The Real-Wold Mentoring at Ruhala
Enjoy the latest blog post from Director Mark Ruhala! “In performing arts training, especially for career minded students, there is no substitute for a teacher/mentor with real-world experience. Performing arts work is learned in studios, in active, experiential, kinetic learning situations. It is not an academic subject. One can learn basketball in a classroom, but it is better learnt in a gym. Like basketball, having the opportunity to learn from a pro-player with real-world experience will provide an advantage of truer, in-depth learning. “Been there, done that” matters. We all know why that expression lives. If one hasn’t been there or done that, one doesn’t have firsthand experience.  ” 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.
