About Me

Choreographer  Dancer  Dance Educator 

Nix Cheek began dancing at the age of thirteen after he was exposed to street dancing and was trained in this discipline for three years. A fated opportunity came at the age of sixteen, where he happened to attend a contemporary dance performance and instantly fell in love with this dance language. The following year, he joined Batu Dance Theater and was trained in Ballet, Contemporary, and Chinese Dance . After graduating from high school, he pursued a major in contemporary dance at the Chinese Cultural University (PCCU) (中國文化大學) in Taiwan.  

Besides dancing,  he is passionate in choreography and was an Artistic Gymnast in University. He has participated in many dance and choreography competitions and won several awards including: Best Choreography Award at the Taipei Phoenix Art Festival 2010 for his debut work, Seek Color (舞顏·覓色) and Best Choreography Award at the Chinese Cultural University Dance Choreography Competition in 2011 for his second work, Das Ende Die Zukunft (未·末).

After Returning to Malaysia in 2012, he joined several dance companies including: DPAC Dance Company (DDC) as a project dancer and Mythical Oriental Dance Company (MODC) as their resident dancer in 2014.
