Adrianne Chu Biography

Adrianne Chu, a New York City dancer, began physically interpreting music since her lumbar vertabrae solidified at the age of one. At the age of three, her parents put her into dance classes where she could express herself more coherently. She proved to be a special child when she told her parents her dream to be a fly girl rather than a prima ballerina like her fellow classmates. With her unique vision and gravitational stage presence, she grew to become a nationally award-winning competitive dancer.

Chu went on to earn a BFA in Modern Dance with honors from Marymount Manhattan College under the direction of Katie Langan. With plenty of training under her belt, Adrianne started to pound the pavement in Manhattan and has been fortunate enough to be working ever since.
