Chris Fonseca

Dancer, Choreographer, Educator

London, England, United Kingdom 

I am a professional dancer, choreographer, teacher and global deaf ambassador, specialising in Urban dance technique. I am based in London, and work extensively across the UK, and overseas, as I often receive international invitations and commissions.

It can be said that my earliest inspirations are credited to actor Michael ‘Boogaloo Shrimp’ Chambers, and Old Skool dance techniques such as; Electric Boogaloo, Popping, locking and B-Boying. I am a founding member of Def Motion (2011-13), an all-deaf dance group affiliated to Deaffest – the UK’s annual Deaf Film Festival, during this time I graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a degree in Graphic Communication.

The proceeding ten years has offered me a diverse spectrum of experiences and accomplishments. In 2012 I appeared in the Paralympics opening ceremony (London 2012, UK) illuminating my talents as an accomplished dance artist and creator. More recent activities include; The Black Collective: Black History Month, (2015) Smirnoff: Ice keep it moving campaign, LinkedIn Chase the great campaign (2016), SKY1 what’s up TV BBC: The one show, (2017), BBC THREE: Amazing Human JBL: Sound to See, campaign (2018), BBC: The Greatest Dancer, Wind In The Willows Musical Theatre (Touring UK), CBeebies: Blue Peter (2019).
