Being an Artist (Entertainer) was a destiny that dancer/choreographer Christopher Tyler could not avoid. His mother, who performed as a back-up singer and dancer for James Brown, introduced him to the stage at an early age. Chris discovered his love for performing as a child and his talent was undeniable. Chris has danced, taught, and performed with many artists throughout the years. Chris has also diversified his talents to become an accomplished teacher, choreographer, and agent. He is also a successful musician, having more than a dozen albums of hip hop/dance instructional music. He has taught at The Pulse Dance Convention, NYCDA, SADM, Dance Masters of America and more. He continues to travel nationwide teaching workshops, master classes and providing presentations to thousands of students aged two through adults.

Zonda Dance Virtual/Online Setup
Audience: PreK-12 Capacity: 300 or more
Presentation Time: 45 minutes
Prefer split younger/older but not required
Platform: Zoom preferred, others available if school sets-up and hosts
Presenter will: set-up and email Zoom link as late as the week prior to your show date. Please anticipate meeting presenter in the Zoom meeting 15-minutes prior to your start time so they may enable you/school representative as a co-host and accommodate any last-minute details/instructions.
We think this assembly was even better as virtual due to the fact that it allowed ALL students to interact individually on a Zoom. They could dance from home or at their desk. I think if they were in a group assembly they would not be able to dance themselves. So we loved it.
Theresa Whisenand – Office Manager
Excellent energy. A lot of fun!
Brea D’Angelo – Principal
Christopher Tyler, like all of your talent, was amazing! Kids and teachers alike loved the Virtual Zonda Dance Party. Feedback has been that the kids, regardless of age (We are Pre-K to 8th grade special needs) were up and dancing and moving the entire time! Great show, great diversity of music and style. Wonderful time.

This was amazing! I was worried about a dance assembly being virtual but Chris did an amazing job. Our students were engaged and left with big smiles on their faces. He was flexible and professional. He worked with us to reschedule after a hurricane hit our town and he smiled and kept the party going when we lost power in the middle of the assembly. I cannot express how great this was, we will be returning customers!!! Thank you Chris!

This was the email I sent to Chris after his virtual show for our Father Daughter Date Night: “Wow! Wow! Wow! Chris – That was amazing!!! The energy and fun had by all was incredible! I’m already getting a ton of messages about how great of a time they had. Thank you for helping us to continue our Father Daughter tradition in a year when so many were afraid it would be lost. That was just what we all needed!”

Zonda Dance by Christopher Tyler was beyond our expectations! He was absolutely amazing, the kids and staff were so engaged! My daughter came home raving about Mr. Tyler from Nashville and how much fun she had! He is a 5 star entertainer and we’re so lucky we had him!

I had a great time! I enjoyed the dancing and the host had great energy! Do you do staff events?! I would love to do this again.
Danyel Boliaux – 4th Grade Teacher
This was such a fun assembly for the kids and the teachers! Everyone was actively moving. You could just tell that everyone was having a great time. The students were having so much fun doing all the different dance moves. Even if they did not know how to do a dance move that was being presented, they still just danced their hearts out. I would recommend this assembly to other schools. The presenter was energetic and inspirational. He truly made it so much more inviting and fun. When the students and I were back in our virtual classroom, they could not stop talking about it and how fun it was. They even said that they were going to try the challenge of the dances on TikTok!
Taylor Haevers – Teacher
Wow! That was a very nice show! Mr. Chris was very fun, constantly had everyone moving, and engaged. Students could not stop talking about the program ALL afternoon!
Kim Kidd – Teacher
I really enjoyed the Zonda Dance virtual assembly! Our students love to get up and move and this was a great way to expose them to different forms of dance. As a former dancer myself, it was great to get back to my roots and teach my students that yes, even your teachers have moves.

Loved the audience participation. It kept the students and staff entertained and had a good message. High energy and interactive. The show was wonderful! Very engaging for our students, despite being virtual this year. He got the kids up and out of their seats. They were dancing, laughing, and having fun! This was the perfect program for virtual learning, the kids sit most of the day and this was the perfect program to get them up and moving around! He was great and kept things moving and knew exactly how to hook the kids and connect with them with current topics relevant to them.
Louise Disch – Assembly Coordinator
