Jason Chuang

I moved to New York City in 2015, to be part of the dance capital of the world. On most days, you will find me dancing, attending a dance performance, or both.

I am currently a jazz and contemporary lyrical dancer. Previously in California, I learnt vintage social dance at Stanford University and was a member of the Academy of Danse Libre and Decadance. Check out my dance page for more information.

I am also a dance photographer specialized in live performances. On my photography page, you will find my work covering a wide variety of dance forms including ballet, modern, contemporary, vintage, social dance, and theatre, as well as my more recent activities in New York City.

I started a dance and theatre blog in May 2017 to help myself remember the many wonderful artists and amazing performances that I’ve had the opportunity to experience. Check out my guide to discover dance or browse through my dance and theatre blog.

Welcome and enjoy your visit!

    Three choreographies by Crystal Pite. I love how Crystal creates the connections between the dancers... from our relationship with ourselves to 14 dancers working together and in contrast with each other.

    What a stunning program tonight!!! Hubbard Street presented "Decadence/Chicago", a collection of excerpts from choreographies by Ohad Naharin. I am completely overwhelmed by the creativity, ingenuity, and the power of Ohad's work.
