Daniel Phung (UK)
Daniel Phung started training in breaking and popping in 2006 after being inspired by his older brother, B-Boy LB, and teacher, B-Boy Diggady. During his training in hip hop styles he would battle and perform extensively across the UK with Rationale Productions as a co-founder and performer. Whilst touring he found a yearning to gain more knowledge in dance, going on to study and graduate at Leeds Metropolitan University studying BA (Hons) Dance and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance studying on the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) where he became an apprentice for Company Chameleon, touring nationally.
His choreographic practice focuses on conceptually bridging the gap between hip hop, contemporary dance and theatre, aiming to make work relatable for different audiences whilst staying true to his artistic integrity. Choreographic and performance credits include Rationale Productions, Tino Sehgal, John Ross Dance, Autin Dance Theatre, Tall Tales Big Moves, Balbir Singh and Lo-Giudice Dance.
