His early experience was as a competitive dancer at Break The Floor competitions, where he was later hired as an assistant. Working at Break The Floor gave him the opportunity to travel the country with some of the dance industry’s most talented teachers and choreographers. Christian is currently signed with Bloc LA Talent Agency and his commercial dance work includes dancing on “The Ellen Show” and the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, and appearances on the TV show “Saved By the Bell.”
With a strong value of hybridity, Christian is earning a BFA in Dance at the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance exploring a scholarly approach to dance while furthering his deep passion for artistry. During his training and education, Christian trained in various forms of dance forms and styles while gaining knowledge of the rich history behind each of them. He aspires to work in the commercial dance world and to choreograph for film and stage projects. In this pursuit, he aspires to change the standards of treatment for dancers and put dance artists at the forefront of the commercial industry, rather than in the background.
