Miguel Villalobos first came to Easton Mountain for Expressing Your Inner Self with John Ollom. At that time he was living in New York City.
He had been born in Costa Rica and came to New Jersey in 1996 with his family. He moved to NYC two years later to study movement art with John Ollom. Like most aspiring dancers he worked a number of different part-time and temporary jobs to support himself. He had several parts with Ollom Dance Theater and also got parts in other companies. At one time he was dancing with three different companies at the same time.
He lived in NYC for thirteen years, but he said “I got really tired of New York City. I needed a break.” Toward the end of those thirteen years he was coming up to Easton two to three weekends a month. In July, 2014, he had a conversation with John Stasio. “I told him how I was feeling, and then after that I spoke to Dennis [who was General Manager at that time] and he told me they were looking for someone to help Freddy at the Front Desk.” Gradually Freddy moved on to do more marketing work, so Miguel became Front Desk Manager – a job he enjoys very much. Now Miguel is the cheerful speaker with just a trace of a beautiful Latino accent that you're likely to hear the next time you call Easton Mountain.
