Controlla – Dancehall/Afrobeat

Been a MINUTE. Check out this amazing choreography by Shellee Samuels on Drake’s fire song “Controlla” (This is the first version with Popcaan. More dancehall flavours). Starts off with those island vibes and moves and then straight afrobeat. Enjoy!

Oliver Pineda & Kate Gutnichenko – On2 Salsa

Beautiful salsa dance from Oliver Pineda & Kate Gutnichenko. It’s got a lot of musicality fused in it and both dancers make everything look so smooth and effortless. This is a great dance to showcase On 2 because it’s very apparent that the breaks sync with the open slaps on the conga. It’s a dance that makes the dancers forget where they are because they’re hopelessly lost and present in the music.

Sensual and romantic. This is what salsa can do to you!

David Zepeda & Paulina Posadas [Mambo]

Check out this video of On2  Mambo World Champions David Zepeda & Paulina Posadas at the 2015 edition of Salsa on St. Clair in Toronto!

They dance with such effortless grace and precision. It’s crazy how easy and smooth they make everything look. And how on-time and MUSICAL it is. They incorporate dance as a form of storytelling and it’s obvious how much more effective a performance is when it’s not just a mash-up of “super-difficult moves” but an emotional tale of awesome exhibited through dance.

That “mi Amor” and cheeky kiss at 1:17 is EXACTLY what I’m talking about!

Check it out. World Class performance level salsa.

I ♡ CALI BOYS

I can’t believe I only just discovered the beastly Queen of Polyswagg Parris Goebel. She’s an amazing choreographer and dancer who puts 140% personality and attitude into her dances. Her dances are full of power, control and grace. And a few bucketfuls of effortless cool.

This dance showcases Parris Goebel and her crew’s interpretative and unique ways of dancing. Each dancer injects elements of their own personality into the choreo and it’s a beautiful blend of technique + emotion.

You know it, you know it.

Bitch Better Have My Money

I can’t freaking believe how good this choreo is or how DAMN FIRE these dancers are! Tricia Miranda’s choreography is on point as always.

Three seconds in and it’s shivers all around. That girl in the middle (Jade Chynoweth) is an absolute BEAST. The expressions. Body language. Attitude.

If you need some sass in your life. Watch this. Now.

Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
