Jake Chustz

Dance Teacher

Jake has been performing since age 10. He started with a local community theatre where he came out of his shell and found his passion. He went on to attend the Orange County School of the Arts for 6 years where he studied voice, acting, and commercial dance. While at OCSA, he was part of the dance company called Dot Comm and the prestigious performance group, Montage! The group performed at several events in Orange County including the South Coast Plaza Tree Lighting Ceremony, The Gift of History @ Angel’s Stadium, and at the Segerstrom Center of the Arts. He has worked with choreographers and directors such as Chris Judd, Mark Meismer, and Karen Culliver. Most recently, Jake sang and danced his way around South America as part of the production cast for Norwegian Cruise Line. Onboard he created, directed and choreographed a main stage production alongside a fellow cast member. He is currently pursuing a career in entertainment and is excited to help young dancers grow!
