Born and raised in San Diego,Ca., Chavia made his big move out to the Big Apple two year ago. Before his move, Chavia had beenÂ dancing all along the West Coast for 10 years. Known for his funky, creative, high energy style, Chavia is always one to make sure that everyone is having funÂ while dancing. He is inspired and movedÂ by the simple things in life, and found ways of incorporating that into his dancing. Chavia has dancedÂ within both the competitive circutÂ and apart of professional companies. The teams that Chavia has performed with are; AXS, Formality, Funkanometry San Diego, and Culture Shock San Diego. He has also choreographed for Formality, Funkanometry San Diego, and some high school teams; Kinections, I.D.K., MPULSE, and In-Trace.
Immediately after his arrival in New York, Chavia was choreographing,Â teaching workshops, and performing. Debuting in CARNIVAL: NEW YORKÂ 2009 with the Dennis Caindec’s Project. Shorly after, working with Jonathan Lee in Teen Vogue’s Justin Timberlakes Frangrance Launch. World of Dance New York, Sirens Assasians: After Dark 2010, and Young Choreographers Festival, were just a few his performances.
Chavia is back in San Diego now teaching regularly and continues his efforts to keep dancing alive, hype, and most importantly fun! His family, friends, and love ones, are his biggest inspirations.
