Brian Tong

Dancer and Choreographer

“The best kept secret is Ottawa. Open the right doors and you’ll find the good things and that’s what inspires me.”

Brain’s journey began as a performer as he worked to incorporate dance into festivals like Winterlude, Escapade and WE Day. He grew into a creator, choreographing hip hop routines in studios across the city. And he thrived when he brought the Canadian Hip Hop Dance Championships, the country’s biggest hip hop competition, to Ottawa as part of his current role as a head executive for Hip Hop International.
