Brendon Chan’s dancing talents have taken him to many countries. Now, he’s back home in San Francisco performing in the hit musical Hamilton. Brendon spoke to KALW’s Jenee Darden about what it took to reach this point of his career.

If I don’t want to do something I’m really not going to put that much effort into it, and the only thing I really enjoyed at the time was dance.

See Brendon Chan perform in Hamilton at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco.
