John Steven “Josh” De Guzman
This young man from Nueva Ecija was also discovered on “It’s Showtime” as Vhong Navarro’s Mini-Me. Not only did he make his dream of dancing with his idol come true, John was given a break in showbusiness by appearing as the young Vhong in the Star Cinema film, “Da Possessed” because of his uncanny resemblance to the actor and his imitation of his dance moves.
He is now one of the lead stars of daytime drama “Ningning.”
First discovered in Star Circle Quest Kids in 2009, Izzy was a stand-out because he can dance hip-hop at a very young age.

Bugoy is the most notable of ABS-CBN’s kid dancers. He emerged as the Star Circle Quest Kids winner in 2009 at the age of 7 because of his exceptional talent in dancing.
