Tayag is known as the DOH spokesperson giving tips on preventing all sorts of illnesses in media, but this is not the reason why he is in our health news countdown – he literally danced his way in.


In late December 2011, Tayag tried to convince Filipinos not to use firecrackers to celebrate the New Year with his cool moves. This was caught by ABS CBN cameras and was first featured in their late newscast, “Bandila.” The following day, his dance moves were spoofed in the popular TV Patrol segment – “Mga Kwento ni Mark Logan.” This was shown not once, nor twice, but three times during the holiday season. Almost instantly, Tayag became a trending topic in social media when snippets of his dance moves appealed to audiences everywhere. He is a strong advocate of healthy lifestyle and he finds time for a routine workout at the gym since five years ago.


On June 2, his dance grooves were again in the news as he led some 200 people to a flash mob entitled “Dance for Life” at the Greenbelt Activity Area in Makati City. This was held in collaboration with Fitness First Philippines to build awareness onfitness and exercise.


Now, whenever and wherever Tayag is invited to speak, he would lead his audiences in a dance exercise that feature the latest upbeat dance music.
