"Chris Wong has taught workshops in my school for the past 3 years. Chris leads fun, accessible, and high-energy workshops for students of all abilities. His classes are challenging yet well-paced to ensure all dancers feel inspired and empowered to move. Using current choreography and a knowledge base that incorporates a wide variety of street dance styles, Chris has a unique ability to push students past their comfort zones and try new things while learning important movement skills."

"Chris has been a champion of dance at Sutherland Secondary for five years now. He can bring up to 80 students together in one gym and have everyone trying new moves, challenging themselves, and smiling. His classes are inclusive and accessible for ALL levels, and students are encouraged to add their own style to the combinations he teaches. In addition to hip hop, Chris and Brigitte have made new style hustle a crowd favourite, and students have learned more about the nuances of interacting with one another than they will ever learn from their phones and devices! Fun, energetic, and approachable, Culturally Defined delivers!"
