Kevin Qian

Kevin Yuanjie Qian also known as “ K-ching“ artist started dancing when he was still in high school in 2010. He was looking for a more physical way to express his emerging artistic impulses. He came from a small town in the suburbs of the Montreal metropolitan area. The dance studios around him did not offer the knowledge he was looking for. So, he moved every day in Montreal in order to perfect his art despite the long distance to cross. He had first started with several styles: Hip Hop, Popping and Bboying. Eventually, he found the “Bboying” suited him more because of the more dynamic nature of the dance. He fell in love with the Hip Hop culture and practiced tirelessly. Then, he began to participate in all possible urban dance competitions. During the international competition, Bust A Move, his performance was noticed by Bboy Afternoon who invited him to join Deadly Venoms crew. He is nicknamed “Kching” because during a party, he forgot to empty his pockets and when he began to dance all the money that his pockets contained fell on the floor. We recognize the style of “ Kching“ by its very intense and sometimes even crazy character.
K-ching describes his experience in Bboying as the lighthouse that guided his way through the storm of his adolescence. He felt alienated by his entourage which included a poor cultural diversity. Since then, he has traveled with the goal of performing and competing in several cities in North America including: Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Saint-Sauveur, New York and more in the future. In addition, he met extraordinary people who came to enrich his experience of Kulture Hip Hop. Bboying allowed Yuanjie to become a citizen of the world and to grow on a personal level.
