Daniel Lai - Judges' Choice Jan. 2015

I started dancing at the age of 20 and have been trained in various styles, including contemporary, jazz, street jazz and hip hop. I've always had a fascination with choreography that fuses different types of dance, and for me,  I aim to blur the boundaries between styles to create distinct and unique pieces.

I started experimenting with choreography about a year ago. The dancers in this piece all come from various backgrounds with different training and different styles of dance. Yet, they compliment each other visually and really took my choreography to another level. 

Everything inspires me to choreograph. Music, shapes, movements, words, sounds. I always try to keep an open mind to everything I see and hear.
