My Name is… Chuck Maldonado

I atttended… North Carolina A&T University. “Aggie Born Aggie Bred and when I die…”


The reason you are reading about me is… Because I am an Artistic Director/Choreographer in Hollywood that have choreographed numerous Videos, Awards Shows, Commercials, TV Sitcoms, Tours, and Movies.

Right now I’m working on… Stomp The Yard 2 (Homecoming), Sprite Step Off, Nickelodeon “Fresh Beat Band” and a McDonald’s Commercial.

But if I wasn’t, I’d be… Teaching and Educating young dancers about the Entertainment Industry.

One thing I do every day is… Workout at the gym, eat healthy, and find ways to market myself for future jobs.

I can’t stand when people… Give up on there dreams.

But I love it when people… Work hard, and motivate and inspires themselves to be the best that they can be. Both as a person and in there career.

If you happen to run into me in the street… You will find out that I am a kind warm hearted, and very friendly person that cares.

The Best piece of advice I ever received was… Take the first Step in Faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first Step.

If I had to coin it, my message would be… Ask, Believe and Receive.

My future plans and projects include… Working on Producing future Shows.

Big Ups to… My family and Friends that always support me in all my endeavors. I am grateful to them.

  21. Wow Congrats Chuck. I didn’t know that you were an Aggie. I met you when I did the press for the Atlanta HipHop Film Festival while you were shooting Stomp the Yard. The cast came to our awards show. I believe publicist, Warren Thomas, introduced us. You arrived with Ci Ci.

    Anyway, great interview. I know we’ll bump into each other again.

    Aggie Pride!

  28. HI Chuck,

    Congrats on your great accomplishments! A&T was really good to you! 🙂 I was just wondering, when did you grauate from A&T? I know that you are a Kappa and I was checking to see if you knew my cousin Damon Wade. I graduate in 2002. I know that you were working on Stomp the Yard 2 here in ATL with Terrence J. That is so awesome! It’s great to see our Aggies doing well! Have a blessed weekend!

  33. Having just seen Chuck teach a master class with Monsters Dance Convention, I have to agree he has the ability to do many things and teaching Hiphop dance is definitely one of them. Good luck to your creative endeavors and just do what you do!

  34. Wow! We can say we knew you back in the Aggie days! We are so proud of you!! My hubby, Jeff Monroe, said – well done Aggie, well done! Keep doing your very best!

  35. The first time I saw you dance was in a movie I was watching with my family. I had to rewind a few times… because one of those dancers looked VERY familiar and I realized it was the guy I marched with in A&T’s Marching Band! Good luck in all your endeavors and AGGIE PRIDE!!!

  36. My family and I just watched Stomp The Yard “Homecoming” while planning for “The Greatest Homecoming on Earth” – NC A&T. While watching the Choreography section, saw your interview and said…”I remember that kid from the yard and “T’s” drumline!” Glad to see God has shown you favor. Remain faithful and stay strong. Stay true to self and to your craft. Keep up the great work. And as always….”Aggie Pride”!
