New Resident Choreographer

Dance Alive National Ballet is proud to announce the appointment of Brian Carey Chung (choreographer, poet and nurse) as Resident Choreographer for the 2019-2020 season. Mr. Chung brings to the table an extraordinary wealth of experience in both classical ballet and contemporary dance.  He was founder and artistic director of Collective Body Dance Lab, performed with LINES Ballet for 7 years before joining Complexions Contemporary Ballet and Armitage Gone! Dance where he was principal dancer, rehearsal director and assistant choreographer.  His first ballet for DANB, premiered in February 2019, ‘Touch Me Closer’, was a work of deep beauty, using highly trained classical dancers in a new and original way.  This was so successful that Kim Tuttle, Executive Artistic Director of Dance Alive National Ballet asked him to create a full length ballet for the spring of 2020.  “His title of choice is ‘Athletes of God’, inspired by quote from iconic modern dancer Martha Graham and set to music by Bach.  His respect for dancers is boundless, and we look forward to moving Dance Alive National Ballet forward with grace and enthusiasm”, said Tuttle.
