Song: Frank Ocean - Thinking About You (Keumel Edit)
This was shot in Berkeley, CA right on the Marina. I thought that this scenery would look dope, and it eventually worked out thanks to the light post on the dock. Here i went for more of a hip-hop new school choreo/house feel. At the end i wanted to express my freestyle self as well. The concept was built upon what dancing is to me, and how it can be used in various ways like relieving emotional stress, and here is where it is portrayed. Hope you like it.

Class footage coming out soon. Two brand new pieces.
Check out the new silog. This one was fun to shoot. The concept popped out so quick along with what we were also doing with the choreography. The whole process took about 3 days, to come up with choreo, to teaching/staging, then to filming. I love how i can work so easily with others, and make things move quickly and productively. Will make more soon. Yee.
Hey Tumblr peeps! Check out me and my homie Law’s piece to Janet Jackson “Slolove”. Super fun piece, more connecting towards a house groove, and a build up throughout the piece. I liked how our collab turned out, and it looked super nice on camera. The concept we came up with for the video was easy for us to figure out, we originally were supposed to have three people dance, but one couldn’t make it, so we thought of a concept for two. I think it turned out well. Shout out to my homie Lee for recording and helping us edit, and get our vision across. Spread the art around! All for the love.
If you know me then you know me. But when someone says they know somebody, do you actually know them?
I won’t lie, at this point in time i am in a different place in my life than i was before. I regret the way i had portrayed myself, and regret some things that i did. But know the situations that were around me, and hopefully you will have a better understanding of where i was and why i was like that at that time.
I did things before and i can’t take that back. I will continue to live my life the way i want to, and be successful in the way that i want to be, which is for myself and not for others.
This piece to me is all about the club scene, and just going out with friends, having fun…being faded?! haha. But all in all mostly to have fun. I wanted to show off different ways of dancing to RNB songs, i think im doing an okay job. Still siloging on my style tho. I wanted the verse to be a good mixture of both groove and iso, once you get to the chorus your like ayeee time to get it. Haha. I got a good response from the SJ scene, they are dope peeps. I need to teach out there soon. NOr Cal Dance Art’s new studio is ridiculous. Hella nice ass spot. I wish i could teach there on a weekly basis…ahhaa. But yeah hope you enjoy the video…ROCKIN THAT THANG LIKe….haha
Varcity class i taught last Thursday. SUPER FUN! Got to catch up with people that i haven’t seen in a while. This piece felt very good, only because it flowed really well to me. Especially the second half. I will post up a concept to this, so stay tuned for more videos. Today i taught the first class with the kids at Pleasant Hill Elementary. Man these kids are a handfull, and are so funny to work with. Im excited. Peep and enjoy!
Marques Houston - Slow Dance Routine. Super super throwback. Taught a class for VarcitySF, the dance team at USF. Taught them a slow piece, i don’t really do too many of these but i really liked the way the music was interpreted here. I really liked Paris’ version to Keri’s verse, so i wanted to do the reply. A really heavy feel, at this time i didn’t like the way i did it. However the people in this video do this piece way more justice than myself, me as a dancer at that time had a different mindset. Again, you learn and you grow, thank you to my friends who rip this piece, and the opportunity Varcity has given me.
