Everest Shi
(he/him)
Dancer - Movement Actor

BIO
Everest Shi is a dancer and choreographer based in Vancouver, Canada. He started dancing later in life as a student at the University of California Berkeley, directing his own competitive team "Identity X", which won Second Place at the World of Dance Los Angeles 2016 competition.

 

After university, Everest decided to pursue his passion for the arts and started working in the industry. He was invited to Thailand by Di Moon Zhang to the first Asia Camp, and danced in the commercial choreographed by Moon and Duc Ahn Tran. He then moved to LA, dancing for the K-Pop group WINNER, Shaun Frank, and many more artists and events, such as the Electronic Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. He also choreographed his first commercial for Cisco Systems.

 

Since moving back to his hometown Vancouver, Everest continued to choreograph, making another international commercial for Kit & Ace. He has continued to choreograph for local artists, charities, radio stations, burlesque shows, and urban showcases, while continually getting noticed by famous artists, such as Ne-Yo, who reposted one of his pieces on Instagram. He also began working in the TV and Film industry as well, working in shows such as Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. 

 

Everest also began teaching during this time, and has since then taught drop-in classes at many studios across Canada and USA, including Millennium Dance Complex Toronto and On One Studios. Experienced with teaching all ages and levels, Everest strives to ensure the best quality of teaching as he is extremely passionate about education and preservation and advancement of culture.

 

Committed to furthering his craft, Everest continues to train to become as versatile of a mover as possible, performing hip-hop, afro styles, waacking, and burlesque, just to name a few movement styles. He takes every opportunity to learn as much as possible in order to better both himself and his community.
