My favorite dancer is Jongup Moon from the Korean boy group BAP

He's my favorite dancer because he's a phenomenal dancer. He always works very hard, and he doesn't let anything keep him down.

Bring Me to Life by Evanescence

The dance I cherographed is contemporary as well as hip hop.

Contemporary dance is similar to modern but contains elements from jazz, classical, and modern.

Hip hop is a street dance that formed with the hip hop culture and music. It consists of moves such as popping, locking, and breaking.

More Info About Me and Dance.

I've always loved dancing since I could walk. I've been told that my first performance was when I was 3 at an impromptu talent show before a PTA meeting. I sang and danced my own choreography to Complicated by Avril Lavigne. Choreography I still somewhat remember today. When I was 5 I was in ballet for a little bit before I joined soccer and after I joined soccer I wanted nothing to do with ballet and still don't. However, I didn't stay away from dance for long because a year or 2 later I was in jazz. I did jazz for 2-3 years before I quit. When I started middle school, I developed a habit of dancing any and everywhere. A habit I still have. My sophomore year of high school, I discovered that there was a dance class I could take at the school and I started taking the class.


The music I dance to is mostly Kpop (Korean pop music). In Kpop the artists are expected to dance these amazing dances that I like to learn. Even if a song doesn't have any choreography, the songs are very catchy and I enjoy learning about the Korean culture and the language.
