KPop Performance Group

I've never been particularly good at hip hop, much less korean pop choreography. This was my first time joining with the goal of performing at University of Toronto's Festival of Dance to showcase what we had learn. With three months as the goal and biweekly practices, we met up at a yoga studio to learn new steps and refine our moves.

One of the girls, Helen, is particularly experienced and very good at analyzing and teaching moves based on korean choreography.

Many of our practices took place Sunday late afternoons to learn choreography and cleanup steps. 

Lovely practice facility: Yoga studio with a mirror.

Here we could work with spacing and test lighting before the big night.

Performance 2: End of Term Party 



It was such a fun experience and I didn't think I'd ever picture myself dancing to a kpop dance routine. Its something I wouldn't mind doing in the future, I think it would really be a lot of fun.
