This early training would pay off, as he was soon receiving offers to dance professionally, despite his age. He began working with professional choreographers, which in turn started to increase his skills exponentially. Some of the people he worked with early in his career include Matt Steffanina and WilldaBeast Adams. It wasn’t long before he found himself making television appearances, with his first projects being in commercials. He then became a part of videos for Kidz Bop 27 and 29 which is a brand of compilation albums featuring children performing to popular songs.
After San Jose’s work with Kidz Bop, he then appeared in the show “Fake Off” which aired on TruTV, and is a reality competition series which features groups competing in 90-second routines trying to recreate popular moments from pop culture, including movies, television shows and other events. The name of the show is a reference to the term ‘faking’ which is used for recreating an iconic moment.
In 2015, he then appeared at the Radio Disney Music Awards (RDMA), an annual awards show operated by Radio Disney which began being televised the previous year. He performed alongside another popular young dancer named Natalia LaRose during the show, and then also worked with MTV Mexico in several video segments. During the same year, he also worked with the educational company ABC Mouse, which is an early learning academy with a website filled with videos designed to help kids with reading, math, social studies, music, arts, and a lot of other topics. His consistent appearances would led him to more projects, and he did so while managing his school responsibilities.
Dance Moms and Recent Projects
In 2016, Kenneth made a guest appearance in the television show “Dance Moms” during its sixth season. The series airs on Lifetime and follows children training for a career in dance, tutored by Abby Lee Miller, with a focus on the interaction between the teacher and her students. There is also an insight into the drama behind the scenes, especially with the children’s mothers. The show is primarily filmed at the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) studio in Los Angeles, California.
In the show, Kenneth appeared as one of the competitors for the Santa Ana based Devotion 2 Dance competition which was held at Valley High School, and also featured popular names such as Maddie Ziegler and JoJo Siwa. The appearance helped with his television exposure and gained him more opportunities; in 2017 he was chosen by the dancing group “Boy Squad” to be a part of the group, and he was signed to MSA Agency too, as a child model. He is also a member of the lil BEASTS dance crew and the HB Kids crew. Being a Boy Squad member also meant that he would work on the group’s web series which aired on GO90, with other members of the group including Josh Cruz, Will Simmons, and Gabe De Guzman.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of San Jose’s romantic relationships. Many sources state that he is single and still young, so is likely focused on his dance career and isn’t really looking for any long term relationships. There are some rumors that he was romantically involved with high profile dancer Maddie Ziegler who gained a lot of fame through her collaborations with singer Sia, appearing in music videos of “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” as a dancer. This is because the two were seen together during an episode of “Dance Moms” but the rumor remains unconfirmed.
Similar to numerous dancers, he’s been highly active online through social media, particularly on Instagram in which he posts a lot of personal photos including photos of him travelling to various locations. He also promotes some of his recent and upcoming projects through the platform. In recent years, he’s been a lot more focused on his work in the Philippines, reconnecting with his roots in the country and becoming involved in local show business. He continues to stay active in dance, while also pursuing acting and singing opportunities.
