Calvin Lu started dancing in 2013 and quickly became a regular at UC Berkeley’s weekly outdoor venue, dancing as both a lead and a follow. There, he learned about having fun, being musical, and not taking himself too seriously. Now, as a teacher, competitor, and choreographer, he takes that spirit of playfulness into all of his dance endeavors. His classes emphasize feeling comfortable when you’re dancing, accessible learning curves, and coming to each dance with a playful attitude. He is also one of the organizers for The Switch, a workshop about de-gendering dance roles.
