Mikey Fusco is a dancer, rapper, musician, and aspiring actor from America. His most popular appearance was on the talk show ‘Teens Wanna Know’. A New Jersey native, Fusco became interested in the performing arts early in his life. When he was 12 years old, he began his career as a dancer. Armed with inherent musical gifts and natural charisma, he moved to Los Angles and New York where he was trained under some of the best acting coaches in the business. Fusco landed his big break in 2011 when he got the chance to participate in the dance reality show ‘ America's Best Dance Crew’ as part of ICONic Boyz. Over the ensuing years, he has become one of the emerging star performers in Hollywood and has collaborated with producers who have worked with Rihanna, Nelly, Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson and Backstreet Boys in the past. In 2017, he replaced The-X-Factor finalist Josh Levi in the boy band Citizen Four.
Mikey Fusco realised what he wanted to do in his life rather early. When he was 12 years old, he took up dancing professionally. In 2011, he was selected to be a contestant in the MTV’s hit dance reality series ‘America's Best Dance Crew’. As a member of the ICONic Boyz, he demonstrated his impeccable work ethic and raw talent and it was through his natural skills and eye-popping dance ability that he managed to clinch the second place finish in the season six of the show. One of the judges, former NSYNC member JC Chasez, was so impressed with him that he commented, “You're thinking beyond your years, and you should be really proud of that. I'm on the lookout for you."
After ‘America's Best Dance Crew’ ended, Fusco began to focus on his music career. The genres he was interested in were rap, ballads, and pop and he began to combine the three distinctive styles. He did covers of several popular songs and has worked on projects that involved some of the most influential record producers in the industry, including team Da Internz (which has worked with Rihanna and Nelly) and Brian Kennedy (who has worked with Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, and Backstreet Boys).
In 2017, he joined the pop group Citizen Four, replacing former member Josh Levi. The other members of the group are brothers Conner and Carson Boatman and Austin Percario.
As an aspiring actor, Fusco sought out proper training. He took acting classes in New York and Los Angeles under renowned coaches, such as Lane Napper, Cynthia Bain, and Lauren Patrice Nadler.
