Performer’s Guide to Las Vegas: Victor Ramos from iLuminate

Q- How did you get your start as a performer?
Ramos- My start as a performer came from my audition I did for the famous dance crew, the Jabbawockeez. From that point I learned so much about the industry, entrainment, and dance in general. 

Q- Where are you from, and how long have you lived in Las Vegas?
Ramos-I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, and have been living in Vegas for about 8 1/2 years now.

Q- What is your favorite thing about living in Las Vegas?
Ramos-My favorite thing about living in Vegas is the ability to work consistently as a performer. I also love the diversity of work that is to be had as well. You get the opportunity to really shape yourself into the type of performer you want to be. 

Q- What is your favorite spot to bring visiting family and friends?
Ramos-My favorite spot to bring friends and family to Vegas would be the speakeasy nightclub On The Record. This spot is the one place on the strip that gives you the downtown vibe with great old-school music along with street-type aesthetics.

Q- If someone asks you for dinner recommendations in Las Vegas, what do you suggest?
Ramos- My dinner recommendations would have to be It’s Sushi, Pho Kim Long, and Shoku Ramen. I am a big fan of Asian food, and these three spots deliver some of the best tasting ramen, sushi, and Vietnamese food for a pretty great price. 

Q- Where are some of your favorite places to go and things to do in Las Vegas on your day off?
Ramos-Some of my favorite places to go when I’m not performing are Gold Spike, We All Scream and Skate Rock City. Each of these places has something completely different to offer while still being loads of fun. Gold spike has many different themed nights with a lot of outdoor games to play. And my favorite thing to do on Sunday nights is going to Floyd Mayweather’s Rink, which is a high probability you will see him skating himself.
