    ED classes are divided into 7 categories. See below to check what they are and choose one to begin with!  KPOP Essentials Did you know that great dancers have an arsenal of basic moves they use on repeat? This is where it all begins! KPOP Essentials classes are an easy, fun and essential guide to dancing and the classes focus on the breakdown of foundational dance moves such as steps, turns, body isolations and waves.  Any Level A trainees out there? These classes are designed for those who just started dancing or are looking to work on the basic dance skills.     Start by going through a fun dance routine for the basic moves, designed by world’s best KPOP choreographers: DX, Youjin, Minjung, Sooyeon and Patt!

Style Dance There are many different genres and forms of dance. Our instructors specialize in different genres and forms of dance and teach different styles of choreography. Recognize the color of the choreo through their ED live classes!     What is Popping? Have you ever heard of the dancing technique Popping? Even if you're not familiar with this style of dance by name, you have probably seen it in the moves of iconic dancers like Michael Jackson, and even mixed into the choreographies of more contemporary dancers. KYO, one of our instructors, is the dancer who pioneered the field of popping in Korea. Watch a Q&A interview with him below (링크 또는 유튜브 넣기), where he talks about how he started popping, what inspires him, and other aspects of dance.   Popping instructor KYO    @dancerkyo A world-class popper, KYO (a.k.a Crazy Kyo) has danced, choreographed, and trained KPOP stars for more than two decades.

Tutting is a dance style that utilizes the body’s ability to create clean lines and sharp angles with your arms and hands and keep your body form as you move. Originally inspired by the art of Ancient Egypt, Tutting is not that far off from walking like an Egyptian, but on a different tune.  Rather than a dance style, tutting started gaining attention as a trend when it was first introduced as a type of architecture and was featured in magazines. Now it’s one of the most popularly seen dance styles among hip-hop and popping dancers today. Tutting instructor Spella    @_spella Spella is the most famous hands choreo expert in KPOP. As the choreographer and personal trainer of many girl groups like Red Velvet and IZ*ONE, she will introduce the diverse genres of Waacking, Voguing, and Tutting. - Red Velvet Irene & Seulgi Choreographer - Kwon Eunbi Dance Trainer   What is Waacking? Waacking is an expressive form of dance with splendid arm movements, which is created in the LGBT clubs of Los Angeles during the 1970s disco era. The dance has also been known as “Punking”, with some of the originators claiming that the name was a way of taking ownership of a negative term (as the term “punk” was a derogatory term for LGBT men in the 70s) and giving it a positive connotation. The dance includes a lot of Arm Twirls, Chest Extentions, and Poses. Click here to take YE-G's basic Waacking class in order to get the detailed instruction and drills!   Waacking instructor YE-G   @_yegkim_ YE-G has won many Waacking contests and is currently working as a dance professor in a college and a judge for different events.
