Chachi Gonzales

Dancer and Choreographer

Olivia Irene Gonzales, better known as Chachi Gonzales, is an American dancer, choreographer and occasional actress. Chachi started taking dance classes at the age of six and was initially trained as a ballet dancer. At the age of nine, she discovered hip hop and began taking classes. Eventually, Chachi joined forces with the members of Marvelous Motion to create a new dance crew, I.aM.mE., which went on to win the sixth season of America’s Best Dance Crew in 2011.

Since that victory, Chachi has become one of hip hop’s youngest and most popular choreographers and dancers. She has taught classes and workshops around the world and has a substantial international fan base. Currently, Chachi is also promoting her new clothing line called DOTHEADS by Chachi.
