Mr. Chen’s dedication, communication skills and rapport with his students is exceptional. He is professional, patient and is always prepared for his classes. He is detail oriented and his concern for each child to enjoy and be successful is the class is obvious.

“He is an inspiring virtuoso of the art of dance, full of exhilarating energy, and is always willing to reach in deeply to reveal, as well as, display beautifully the gift inside of every student. I have had the honor of taking his classes and performing his choreography and can honestly state entirely that he is a creative genius and a wonderful motivator for anyone that he works with. The grace, beauty, and authority with which he moves is rare and transpires into his teaching and I gladly recommend him for any task where great skill is needed!”
