ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Amber Divina is a passionate dancer and choreographer whose ear for musicality and ability to capture the emotion of songs through lyrics and beats makes his dances unique and in a style of his own. He has over 20 years of dance experience, starting at a young age in a small town in the Philippines. After moving to America in 1995, he continued his dance training through his high school step squad and by joining a collegiate dance team while a high school senior. He later began working for a local record label, Kamikaze Records in San Francisco, as a back up dancer for one of their touring musical acts.
Amber has trained with companies that include Funkanometry San Francisco Dance Company and VIP directed by Greg Chapkis. He was a founding member of Mix'd Elements, a team that appeared on America's Got Talent, won KIIS FM's Summer Dance Crew Competition in Los Angeles, and earned second place at World Of Dance San Diego. He has also performed at some of the biggest dance stages in the United States, from Choreographer's Carnival in Hollywood, Body Rock in San Diego, VIBE in Irvine, World of Dance Bay Area and San Diego, Elements in Boston, and Main Event in New Jersey, to name a few.
As a student of dance, he has been recognized by some of the industry's best choreographers and has been awarded scholarships to Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood. He once received an invitation for a private audition for Janet Jackson's earlier projects after taking master classes from Janet's choreographer, Gil Duldulao.
As a choreographer and dance teacher, Amber has taught classes and workshops all over the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and Alhambra in California. He has also taught at Boogiezone New Jersey, Boston University, Brown University in Rhode Island and Static Noyze Company Class in Boston, Massachusetts. He is currently a staff member at City Dance Studios in San Francisco where he teaches weekly classes and performance workshops.
Amber vows to remain a student, to learn different styles, and to grow as a dancer and choreographer in hopes of sharing his knowledge with others he meets along the way on his journey of dance.
