MYX TV, the premier Asian-American television network, united Korean pop fans and dancers alike by successfully launching the first ever K-Pop dance convention in the United States - K-Pop TaKeover! With the participation of audiences ranging from six to 48 years old, the convention consisted of twelve dance classes led by some of the dance world’s most trend-setting artists in the heart of Hollywood.
Participants learned the actual dance routines from K-Pop’s most well-known choreographers, Shaun Evaristo, Lyle Beniga, Mari Martin, and Keone Madrid of Movement Lifestyle and learned hip hop and pop to K-Pop remixes from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5 winners, Poreotics.
“This event really showcased the popularity of K-Pop and the impact that the music and music videos have on their fans. Seeing their dedication and excitement as they danced alongside widely respected choreographers and dancers really made the K-Pop TaKeover all the more special to MYX TV,” shares Miguel Santos, Head of MYX TV. “We are proud to have created that experience.”
The event culminated with a showcase where students were the stars, performing the routines they learned throughout the day. Movement Lifestyle was represented by the S**t Kingz, of Japanese pop fame. Choreographers Lyle Beniga and Shaun Evaristo came in full flair with a Taeyang lookalike, re-enacting the Where U At music video. Poreotics ended the show impressing the crowd with their signature robotic dance style and creative routines.
"It was great to be a part of MYX TV's first-ever K-Pop Takeover! It was a pleasure working alongside MYX TV and Movement Lifestyle in helping inspire all those dancers and K-Pop fans in the Los Angeles area, " said Danny Batimana, Manager for the Poreotics. “K-Pop is taking over!”
