Artistic Director / Choreographer / Dancer
Peter Chu, originally from Cocoa Beach, Florida is a distinguished artist who strives to push the physical bounds of dance. Peter began his training as a competitive gymnast and continued as a cheerleader. He nurtured his artistry at Dussich Dance Studio where his evolution into dance began. As a BFA student at The Juilliard School (under direction of Benjamin Harkarvy), Chu was pushed further as a technical mover and began an explosive journey into choreography. Upon graduation he was awarded the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Choreography.
Chu is a remarkable and multi-faceted artist; as a performer he has danced with BJM _Danse, EZdanza, as the lead in Christina Perri'sJar of Hearts music video, in Celine Dion's Vegas spectacular A New Day, and has danced extensively with Crystal Pite's Kidd Pivot.
In 2008, Peter formed his own company chuthis. Most recently the company performed their wildly popular show, Nothing Sticks in Vancouver, BC.
As a choreographer he has created for Naomi Stikeman's, Çaturn (consulted by Robert Lepage), ARTV series in Quebec: Meneuse de Claques and was awarded the honour of being the choreographer for the Perry-Mansfield New Works Festival (directed by Linda Kent), among others.
He is also the recipient of the prestigious 2010 Capezio A.C.E. Award for Choreography.
Peter's upcoming projects include the 24 seven dance convention and creating a new work for Orlando Ballet Theatre, under the direction of Robert Hill.
