Adjunct Professor of Dance, Theatre & Dance Program
Born and raised in the DMV metropolitan area, Chris Law is a lover of hip hop who continues to study dance culture and its integrations with social justice. He has completed undergraduate and graduate studies from the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP), receiving an MFA in Dance and Choreography. As a devoted teacher and student of his craft, Chris’ knowledge of hip hop, martial arts, vogue, modern dance, and self-taught urban movement uniquely allows him to guide diverse students and audience members through a fusion of different movement forms. He is an alumni of DyNaMiC Hip Hop Dance Team, Culture Shock DC, and has showcased his work at cyphers, pop-up performances, and creative concept videos in the DC, Maryland, Virginia (DMV) area. He has taught and choreographed at various institutions including the Kennedy Center, Dance Place, Howard University, UMCP, Howard Community College, the Baltimore County Dance Festival, and The Lion’s Den.
Together with Ama Law, Chris creates work as Project ChArma, a project-based dance theater company dedicated to using art as activism; pronounced "karma" because it guides their lives. They most recently presented Chronicles of Nina… What Now? during the National Dance Day Festival at The Kennedy Center in 2022. Project ChArma will be presented at the Kennedy Center in April 2024 as the newest recipients of the Local Dance Commissioning Fund!
