Meet Ryken

Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my official website for Ryken The Brand, I am so delighted you are visiting.


I am Ryan Whitaker-Cook, but I am best known as Ryken which is my permanent stage name. I found my brand September 22nd, 2020, when feeling inspired to find a way I could combine both my talent and my intellects in business. Being a full-time online student due to the pandemic, became tiring for me pretty fast. I needed something to intrigue me and heighten my attention. Creating my own business to revolve around dance would do just that, allowing me to showcase my talents to a large spectrum of people.

It isn't easy chasing after your dreams while being a college student, especially when you are a dreamer in the field of arts. I may be a student of business, but that doesn't mean I have to neglect my God given passion. I am so excited to see what this journey has in store for me and am blessed I have the motivation to do so while all that is happening around us today. 

Be sure to check out all of the components of Ryken The Brand. RyKomforts, my clothing line made for fashionable dancers, RyKrafts, my YouTube channel containing my dance content, and RyKiss which is coming soon 2021.
