Chris Kumre- Who He Is

Instructor/Competitor/Choreographer/DJ/Judge


First of all, I want to get this out of the way. I am the baby out of 7 kids. I was born and raised in Monterey, CA. I spent several years working as a computer tech until I got tired of the hustle and bustle of the fast lane. For the last 3 years, I have been working in a western store. For those who do not know, I am only 26 and I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, Kayla.

How I got into western dancing....
I have always been fascinated with all kinds of dancing and music. I used to dance at all kinds of different clubs and do exhibitions with friends for fun and free passes. I got into western dancing back in early 94, when I was dared to by a cute girl and I was hooked. I have spent a lot of time dancing at the Moose Lodge in Salinas. I was convinced that I should compete for the first time at Pismo in 94. I have been competing every since.

Accomplishments....
I have choreographed many dances but the third dance that I ever did (Rednex Stomp) was my first success world wide. I have competed in line dancing, couples, teams, duos and choreography and have won numerous awards. I have choreographed for many teams, duos and coached many line dance competitors.
I DJ many of the CWDI events as well as many other functions. I also have done choreography for high school dance teams. I have been very involved with the CWDI dance organization. I have worked very hard on different committees to help better the organization.

Inspirations....
I have had a lot of inspirations in my life. One of the people that inspired me the most to do choreography was Neil Hale. The two people that inspired me the most as far as competition are Rob I. and John Burton, because they always did their own thing and always had their own style.

What I like most about dancing....
Probably what I like most are the people. Last but not least what I would like to say to anyone that is thinking about competing is just remember to have fun and go out there and do your own thing.
