Chuby Dice

Dance artist / Performer / Choreographer / Dance creator /  Instructor / Jamaican Dancehall Culture Ambassador

Chuby Dice is one of the top dancers in Jamaica and leader of Jamaican dancehall crew Black Dice. He featured on the big screen in films including ‘Intent 2’ and ‘King of the Dancehall’ directed by Nick Cannon, and music videos for top artists including Vybz Kartel, Busta Rymes, Stylo G, Elephant Man, Shawn Storm and Australian producer Monkey Marc to name a few. His team Black Dice have gained much street cred and global recognition over the past few years for bringing the fire back to Jamaican Dancehall street parties with their pyrotechnic displays, and creation of popular party steps such as ‘Falla Fashi’, ‘Swing It’, ‘Move a Foot’, and ‘Tek Piece a It’ to name a few.

In Australia, Chuby has performed at festivals including MONA FOMA, JMFF, St Kilda Festival and Moomba, supported international touring artists such as Konshens, and judged the Australian Dancehall King and Queen competition. As a highly knowledgeable and sort after dance instructor he has delivered workshops in Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane and of course back home in Jamaican with students traveling from all over the world to learn authentic Jamaican dance from the source.

Now based in Melbourne Chuby Dice is teaching and performing regularly as part of the Jungle City team, as well as in schools educating the next generation of Dancehall dancers in Australia.
