Below are just a few reviews we have received about Daquan:
“Daquan did a good job of doing a brief skills assessment and instruction prior to beginning choreography that really helped to provide choreography that will push our team, but is also attainable. He also was very accommodating to suggestions/requests and provided options during the process. I liked the creative stunt entrances, dynamic pyramid and visually interesting and unique dance sequence. The choreography also does a good job of integrating our teams wide range of tumbling skills.”
