Agent / Manager / Producer
After many years of successfully teaching Dance and Performing Arts, Chris decided in 2008 that a change was in order, sold her studio and embarked upon her new career as an Agent, Manager and Producer of Dance-related concepts.
Having successfully work-shopped her Syllabus techniques for over a decade on her students, Chris decided to make ADTS an official training program. On top of that in 2009 she produced the ‘Triple Threat Dancer’ Beginner to Intermediate Top Tips for Dancers DVD to provide an at-home easy-to-use training program to students keen to advance their strength and technical ability for dance in the age range of 5 to 14yrs.
By 2010, Chris was sought after for her knowledge on employment in the Dance and Performing Arts Industry so opened her boutique Agency for Dancers, Singers, Actors, Musicians, Acrobats and Celebrity Choreographers – CJ DUNCAN MANAGEMENT.
Since 2005, Chris has been sponsoring US based Celebrity Choreographers to teach in Australia with a view to pushing the envelope of keeping Australian choreographic content very current and competitive within the International environment. This has positively influenced the standard of local choreography and brought our national understanding of current trends to a higher level. Over the past 3 years, Chris has undertaken extensive promotion and booking of numerous Australian Celebrity Choreographers’ tours and workshops with studios across the country.
