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 latest posts below, or browse through my dance and theatre blog.

Welcome and enjoy your visit!

    Growing up, I was always told: "Run from the police!" I'm not black. I didn't grow up in the US. However, the message is the same anywhere in the world. The police does not protect you. The police protects the system.

    The coronavirus can't stop the New York Dance Lab (virtual) Gala tonight. Cheers to an amazing organization that celebrates, promotes, and cultivates the art of choreography.
