The Chinese term “Yung” means courage or bravery. Yung Chris started dancing at the age of seven. At the age of eleven, he stopped dancing because it wasn’t cool anymore. For two years, Chris majored in marketing at Texas Southern University but then realized that dance was his true passion. At the age of twenty-two, which is considered a late period to start dancing, Chris played catch up by studying any dance he could get his hands and feet on. He later connected with Havikoro, where he learned Hip Hop, Breaking, Popping, and House. Ultimately it was House that chose Chris.
