K-Pop Dance Migration Party!

Korean popular music’s dance and dynamic choreographies are integral to K-Pop’s success as an international phenomenon. This workshop will look at the explosion of K-Pop dance migration by exploring a medley of current K-Pop dances notable in cultural connections, then focus on a K-pop bellydance fusion piece, and end with a K-Pop dance party of all the choreo!
