Heyyyy, in this workshop, we will do a K-pop dance cover together! Beginner-friendly!
In the warm-up session, we will stretch-up and use the different body parts to do some simple Jazz/Hip Hop movements, which always appear in K-pop music videos. Then we will try the “killing part” of the choreography from famous K-pop groups (for example Blackpink, Itzy, aespa, Red velvet, Exo). My method is to learn each movement separately and then dance with the music from 0.5 speed to full speed. In this process, we can clearly feel which part of our body is moving and motivating the other part of the body to move. Definitely, we will add our unique facial expressions to show personal styles! I think “dance cover” doesn’t mean “dance copy”, we are not required to dance exactly the same as K-pop dancers do. Feel invited by this culture and explore your own way to dance!
