Crash first started taking hip hop classes at the age of 10. Shortly thereafter, he trained in tap, jazz, and contemporary, and competed in these styles all throughout high school. Crash also began teaching hip hop and contemporary at his local dance studio in his hometown, Wenatchee, Washington. During this time, he was awarded choreography and dance awards, including an award from Seattle’s The 5th Avenue Theatre.
Crash took a gap year after graduating high school and studied ballet as a foreign exchange student in Graz, Austria. He then moved to San Diego to study marine science and German at the University of San Diego, where he was a member of the USD Dance Company and Culture Shock San Diego. Crash hopes to one day be a respected dancer and choreographer within the dance community.
