Want to learn how to dance to RnB music from Artists such as Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Usher? Come take my class and we will GET DOWN!! In general I teach Urban Choreography but can also teach social dances, grooves, basic fundamentals of popping and housing or whatever style you're looking to learn, as well as concepts to expand on that further your understanding of your body~

My name is Christopher Zou, a 26 year old Dance Instructor. I have a Biology degree from UCR, but my passion is dancing. I dance whenever and where ever I can, in the weirdest places! I was known as the "kid with rollerblades who dances everywhere", but that's just how much I LOVE to dance!
I started dancing my senior year of High School and fell in love. I have performed with numerous teams in SoCal such as Collective Faction, 909 Hip Hop Dance Troupe, Team Millennia, Watchmen, and Hall of Fame. Of these teams I helped found Collective Faction and have directed them for 3 years. Since I have danced on the Good Project and currently dancing on Hall of fame and training with KreativMindz Dance Academy in Noho.

I have been teaching for about 8 years and love to share my craft with students to help them grow! I am very patient and will make sure all my students learn and take something of value from my class!! Come through! To see more of my recent work there are some videos below as well!

This was the most fun I have ever had at a dance lesson. I am a beginner and Chris made me feel like I was actually capable of doing hip hop. I can't wait for my next lesson!

Not only did i learn a dance choreography but i learned how to implement small fundamentals that people forget that make the difference in the piece. Was my first lesson and i felt pretty comfortable and Chris made it very easy to learn and discipline myself.

Anyone who wants a dance instructor that is "AWESOME" should definitely try Chris Z. He is kind, patient, caring and enthusiastic. Trying to learn something new can leave us feeling a bit vulnerable but Chris is a great eacher and makes you feel very comfortable.
Thank you Chris!
