Christoffer, or Chris, is a renowned street dancer with a decade of ballet training behind him. He’s a stage veteran at the young age of 18 and has appeared in theatre and opera, as well as on TV and music videos. Chris made both his stage and TV debut at the age of five, and by the age of ten, he was enrolled in the Royal Swedish Ballet School. 

When he was 11 years old Chris participated in Sweden's Got Talent and the following year he was invited to audition for The National Ballet School of Canada. He did and was accepted but chose not to leave Stockholm. 

Chris has worked with major choreographers such as Swedish dance sensation Fredrik ”Benke” Rydman, former member of renowned dance group Bounce. Chris has also taken classes with dancers such as Nick Demoura, Keone & Mariel Madrid (who’ve worked together with Justin Bieber). The young dancer has toured all over the world and choreographed and performed in music videos for artists such as Swedish artist Wiktoria and Sabina Ddumba. Wiktoria has entered the Swedish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen, on several occasions.

Watch Chris perform at Sweden's Got Talent in the video below.

In Prague Chris will perform a contemporary dance called Solo-X which is choreographed by Sigge Modigh. He will dance to a piece of music called Siblings composed by Jesper Hörberg.
