Another late vlog from awhile ago. Day 12 or something? Anyways Haeni Kim and Shaun Evaristo definitely shaped how I want to dance. Their teaching style definitely showed how passionate they are about dance; it doesn't matter if you get the choreo as long as you get the feeling. My vlogs are more irregular now … Continue reading LA Training Day 12: Haeni Kim & Shaun Evaristo Master Class
On a side note I totally forgot to upload this a couple days ago, too many SF adventures. Anyways like I said before in my other instagram post, Ellen is such an inspiration. She is down to earth, a great teacher, and a fun person to be around. I'm surprised not that many people were … Continue reading LA Training Day 11: Ellen Kim!
LA Dance Training: Day 10, Foundations. Started the day with a basic pooping class, which felt harder than the advanced popping class I took the other day. This just shows how the class difficulty gap is way off. A good teacher (same guy taught twice) would be able to easily differentiate between a basic class … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 10, Foundations.
3 classes today. Took a choreo class with Boy Boi Tena, which reminded me of one of those dance videos where you watch people go awf. I attempted to go full out and I really didn't care what I looked like, which is the point of class right? I then took a basics floorwork class … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 8, Exhaustion.
My first class of the day was a contemporary class; I've never taken contemporary in my life. There were a lot of spins, jumps, and floorwork. I was definitely a fish out of the water, but some girl said I did pretty well for my first class, I guess that's something. I then took a … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 7, Trying Improv Acting and Contemporary Dance
I went to the gym early in the morning to work on legs and back, so more squats and deadlifts. Later on I went to Kinjaz Dojo to take Esai Ramirez's class which was a technical and swag piece which I did okay in. I felt like he rushed teaching the choreo during the last … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 6, Kinjaz Dojo
A good day for choreo. I took Haeni Kim's class which was very chill and I do love me some acoustic covers of popular songs. Her style is very patient and smooth, definitely a new fan :). (Video on instagram). Next I took house but I felt meh about it as usual. Third class I … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 5, Choreo & Chicago Footwork
Today I went to the gym to work on arms and chest, which went successfully since my body is sore. Afterwards I went to Movement Lifestyle to take a house class, where I pretty much had the same experience as before; bad teaching. However, the next class I took was more intimate. The class was … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 4, Getting the Hang of It
Today at Movement Lifestyle for the first class I took Sean Carb's rhythm and movement class. It was a cardio filled class as usual. House was next, but it wasn't that great. The teacher didn't explain the moves and just expected us to understand what to do. We drilled the moves but if you aren't … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 3, 4 classes at Movement Lifestyle
Day 2: I went to 24 Hour Fitness to start week 6 of my Kizen Training program. Since I had to do deadlifts and squats, I did not look forward to taking Krumping and Beginner/Intermediate choreography. The classes themselves were fun, but krumping took a toll on my body because I'm not used to the … Continue reading LA Dance Training: Day 2 Movement Lifestyle, Gym and Water Lifting
