Chris Zou

Instructor • Rotating Faculty Member

  • B.S. in Biology at UC Riverside
Raised in the Bay Area, Chris found his passion for dance at a young age while standing in front of the TV imitating the moves to “Eye to Eye” from “A Goofy Movie” before actually even knowing what dancing was. It was much later after a year of being on his high school’s hip-hop dance team when he decided to pursue his passion for dance while studying for his Bachelors of Science in Biology at UC Riverside.

Project, while also having trained with Kreativ Mindz Dance Academy where he had the opportunity to learn from renowned choreographers from all over the world.

Excited to be at FOCUS, he’s is pumped to share and apply his knowledge to provide a strong hip-hop foundation for the students. Mixing various styles such as popping, tutting, and housing, into his choreography, accompanied with fundamental grooves, and the occasional trendy dance move, Chris’s class emphasizes quality of movement, growth, and most of all a good time! He hopes to teach the students that skills and tools learned in dance also apply and are valuable in everyday life.
