was born in Vancouver, Canada.
Kinsun Chan works in a range of artistic disciplines, which he calls Multium Design. His interests are in choreography, film and design, as its singular form or through their combinations. He studied Art, Graphic Design and Dance attending Virginia Intermont College, Georgia State University, University of Louisville, Atlanta School of Ballet and Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet.

He began a professional ballet career in America dancing with the Louisville Ballet and Cincinnati Ballet. He was a finalist at the Varna International Ballet Competition. Kinsun later came to Europe where he danced with the Zürich Ballet and Basel Ballet. He has danced a diverse repertoire from renowned choreographers such as Kylian, Forsythe, Duato, Spoerli, Van Manen, Wherlock and Balanchine. He made his first choreography “Above Ground” at the Zürich Ballet.

He was then chosen to attend the Swiss International Workshop in Choreography (SIWIC) and was also invited by Reid Anderson to choreograph for the “Noverre” at the Stuttgart Ballet. After joining the Basel Ballet, Kinsun had the opportunity to further choreograph new works, which received critical acclaim.
