If you’re one of those who used to watch Willie Revillame’s show ‘Wowowee’, then you’re probably one of those who also loved one of its leading dancers, Luningning. After her decision to leave the industry, the people are wondering what happened to her and with the other dancers Milagring and Mariposa who happen to be the crowd favorite back in the days.
Lea Carla Santos or Luningning is from Cabuyao, Laguna who rose to fame after she graced the entertainment show with her good looks and impressive dancing skills.
Her passion for dancing started at the age of 4 and continued to pursue her passion throughout grade school and high school years. She claims that it was her experience in Japan that topped it all off.
She came home and enlisted herself in the ASF Dancers, the group who performs for Wowowee. She claims that it was Direk Bobot Mortiz who thought of her screen name Luningning, further stating that Direk Bobot used it for a catchier title.
When the entertainment show ended, the career of Luningning didn’t end for she landed a spot in the popular men’s magazines FHM Philippines and Maxim Magazine in 2008. Almost a decade had already passed since she last appeared on TV that’s why a lot of people are already wondering where she is and what she’s been up to.

Her studio features different types of workouts and dancing activities like Pilates, Belly Dancing, Kali, Pole, Aerial Silk, Hoops, Dance Fitness, Stilettos, and even Jazz.
Apart from that, Luningning also appeared in a video as a dancer that appears like a bar. Obviously, she will never give up on her dreams and her passion!
