Trevor Santos' Choreography Style 

Trevor Santos' style is commercial with a strong fluidity. Trevor's choreography often contains many weight transitions, challenging his students to improve their coordination and spatial awareness. Trevor emphasises the importance of enjoying what you are doing, ensuring that his students convey the intention behind the movement as opposed to merely repeating dance steps.
