Below are a list of recent client reviews who have worked with Chris:
“Our only dislike – we couldn’t keep Chris longer! We enjoyed having Chris work with our teams. Having worked with him for our second year, he has an understanding of our athletes, teams, and performing ability. Chris not only delivers a fabulous routine, but offers additional knowledge to coaching staff by responding to choreo questions, legality concerns, or even just for added fluff. Both our staff and our athletes are receptive to his coaching style and I think he’s a great fit for us. We look forward to working with him again! Camp experience is great; we truly feel like our teams have accomplished so much by the end of their experience with Chris. He works well with our teams, never providing them with skills that are out of their reach but always offering a twist for upgrades. #teamspiritfx #teamchris”

“Chris was extremely professional and gave us an amazing product. We were very pleased with the outcome. We loved that he was able to be patient with the teams that didn’t learn choreography as fast as others. We were VERY pleased. We loved Chris’s sense of humor. It kept us all going after a VERY long week of choreography. The product was great as always.”
