I know, I know it’s been a minute since I’ve splashed on my website. In the midst of school and moving yes I’ve fell off. But what better way to break my silence than with The Rookies. The phenomenal international dance crew from France again with the assistance of World Of Dance blesses YouTube with another classic dance video shot in Black and White to enthuse that classic feel directed by Charlie Luccini. The “Spirit of Silence” is like a perfect marriage as Verbal Click laces the track with Indian Click and The Rookies provide the stellar movement to every flute, every bass line, every snare and every harmony. So Shhhhhh and watch the loud movement of intricate bliss.
Ian Eastwood goes back to home to Chicago to film this Justin Timberlake‘s “Strawberry Bubblegum” piece. Directed by Commonless who’s definitely making a name for their selves dropping quality videos. Choreography by Ian joined by dancers Ade Willis and Kris Rhodes displays his growth as a choreoagrapher and me myself enjoy the progress of this kid. Also I can’t go without saying that he chose a perfect female lead in the hilarious and beautiful Megan Batoon. This was a smooth and clean piece as usual. It looked like so much fun just as it did in the end credits with friends and family. And please after you peep the video please read Mr. Eastwood’s comments on dancing and life in general. It’s a perspective that I think people should practice in their everyday life. Enjoy people, friends and family while enjoying your blessings and it comes out in his performance in other words as a whole very inspiring.
Here’s conceptually fresh choreography and direction called “Is It Real?” from the kid Joe Ling at Auckland October 2011. Fluid has always been Mr.Ling’s forte and he doesn’t disappoint on a track just as fluid from Jhene Aiko featuring H.O.P.E., Lite and Roosevelt called “Is It Real Now” from the Mixtape “Sailing Soul(s)” (Which was reviewed by G Style Magazine’s own TeeJay so peep it).
The premise of the piece is it’s a house party where each partygoer interacts with each other throughout the party challenging the realness in their own lives while just touching the surface of the true personalities and character of acquaintances when meeting new people. The dancers and the performance are on point including Joe Ling, Alicia Li, Sarah Fry, Shalom Leilua, Sophie Journee, Jacob Cook, Jacob Yarr, Jordan Vaha’akolo and Jun Sawada. Videography by Kelly Moynihan along with Editing & DVD by www.archipela.co.nz. If you enjoy smooth dance choreography you’ll enjoy this one. Uno!
