Get StartedOur Instructor - Christopher Mercado
Chris joins us from sunny Southern California after finishing up 10 years with the Walt Disney Company. With Disney he worked as a dancer, actor, character performer and special events dancer (back up dancing for celebrities such as Corbin Bleu, Jodi, Benson, Mariah Carey, etc…). He spent 5 years at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando Florida, a little over a year on tour with the Doodlebops, and 4 years in the Disneyland Resort in California. Before that, he was on the Cheer Squad at Washington State University and is proud to be a Cougar. Chris has over 15 years working with children, whether it be mentoring them, tutoring them, or teaching them dance. His passion lies with creating a positive atmosphere where everyone can express their personality and not be afraid to be themselves. He is extremely happy to be a part of the Big Star family and is excited for the many adventures ahead!
