BB JUNIORS & TEENS INSTRUCTOR

CHRIS LUMBA

Chris Lumba started dancing in 2005 as a push from his mother to break out of his shyness. It wasn’t long until like turned to love and love turned into purpose. His early days consisted of performing at Filipino parties and festivals. Eventually, he made his way into the SoCal junior competitive circuit with a team called IDK based out of the South Bay. Later, he spent nine years on an adult competitive team called 220, in which he co-directed for five.

Within the past decade he has been blessed to coach, teach, and mentor dance within multiple age ranges and skill levels. From school clubs to competitive junior teams to weekly classes all throughout San Diego, being able to help others to grow through movement has always been a big part of his journey. He has also been fortunate enough to share his craft up and down California and across the East coast.

Currently, Chris Lumba co-directs 220’s junior team 110 and teaches multiple weekly studio classes in San Diego. Within the Building Block Academy Teens program, he hopes to mold the next generation of dancers not only as amazing movers but well-rounded individuals.
