WHAT TO EXPECT
Quan’s workshop will explore a range of hip hop and street influenced movements and phrases. The emphasis is on musicality and patterning, and exploring sharp articulate moments against bigger, fierce movement. Come prepared to sweat and have lots of fun!
GET TO KNOW THE WORKSHOP LEADER
Quan is a hip-hop choreographer born and raised in East London, UK. He has learned from a variety of teachers learning particular styles within the street styles for example, hip hop, House, Krump, popping and locking.
He came second place as a soloist and third with his group, ZKMO, at Masters of Dance in Majorca. Other competitions he has danced in are World of Dance UK Qualifiers in London, where his group, Cartel, placed second again. Quan has also travelled with his current company, Definitives, to Germany to compete in Finals Dance Competition.
He graduated from University of Bedfordshire with a BA in Dance and Professional Practice where he learnt other technical dance styles like ballet and various styles of contemporary. He pushes his movement by thoroughly feeling the music, or depending on what kind of intention he chooses to tell. As most of his life, he has always trained by exchanging movement such as freestyles and friendly small scale battles with other groups of people – this has influenced his training and given him his own style, helping him find different ways of showing movement, textures and grooves.
