TOP 5 DANCERS YOU SHOULD BE FOLLOWING ON INSTAGRAM

Beyond all that dancing~

We attend classes and dance till we drop...
No doubt we need to practice to improve on our skills but sometimes our mental power and body energy drained out so horribly that one just loses the optimism to carry on. 


So instead of just the dance... how about looking a little further into it?
Try getting your daily dose of inspiration from Instagram?

Everyone needs some motivation and we often turn in to people we admire most to get inspirations.
You've probably caught them in action on Youtube!
Be it dance concept videos, regular dance classes, performances, as guest judges in renown dance competitiions/battles, as backup dancers or choreographers for Celebrities.
Now, lets have a closer look the inspirational talents!


Here are my TOP 5 DANCERS/CHOREOGRAPHERS [in random order of my choice] to follow on INSTAGRAM and why:




1) @Keonemadrid and @Marrrrriel



Name: KEONE MADRID & MARIEL MARTIN
Back up with powerful foundations in dance and individually strong as dancers in their own styles. This humble and inspiring couple appeared on the Ellen Degeneres Show and they definitely sweep people off their feet with collaboration filled with chemistry and heartfelt feelings.

Alongside Shaun Evaristo, Keone Madrid and Mari Martin 
has done choreography works for popular Korean artists in YG Entertainment [2NE1, Se7en, Taeyeng].
Follow the couple on instagram where they’ll open you up to their humble life despite the limelight in the dance scene!



2) @parrisgoebel











Name:
 PARRIS GOEBEL
The South Auckland dancer and choreographer is known for her outstanding Hiphop skills and dominating female power in dance. Her Hiphop influences derived from New Zealand’s culture and heritage brought about her style known as  ‘Polyswag’.Just 22 years old, she has been known as the choreographer behind Jennifer Lopez's Dance Again World Tour and is also the woman behind Bigbang-Taeyang’s Ringa Linga choreography!

Awarded Female choreographer of the year at the World of Dance Industry awards 2014, follow her on instagram if you are also a STEP UP Movie fanatic to catch updates as she will be appearing in the upcoming Movie Sequel Step Up All In’ hitting the cinemas in soon!
Yahooooh!3) @Kylehanagami

Name: KYLE HANAGAMI

I’ve been a pretty big fan of Kyle Hanagami’s dance pieces and it was after watching his videos on Youtube a few years back that sparked my growing interest in choreography.
Letters of love: A project initiated by the big-hearted choreographer himself. People from around the world to write in letters according to the given theme and for every 10 letters received, Kyle will donate $1 to cancer research.
This is the second year on the project after an incredibly successful one in 2013 with over 14 000 letters received!
Be sure to get inspired by his hardworking spirit that never fails to remind oneself to work pass your comfort level!4) @Quickcrew

Name: THE QUICK CREW
A Norwegian dance crew based in Oslo, watching just this 3 member crew dance is just as entertaining as[or even more than] watching a class of 20 dancers on stage!

With crazy swift movements in their choreography that will actually make you miss out something in a blink of an eye, they never fail to impress with the amazing teamwork.
They just take synchronicity to a whole new level~ jaw drops.

Away from all the seriousness, their quirky personalities on instagram will definitely remind you that dance is an enjoyment [totally]!



5) @chachigonzales



Name: OLIVIA “CHACHI” GONZALES

Not even 20 years old,  Chachi has already made several marks in the dance and entertainment scene.  You’ve probably heard of her in the dance crew I.aM.mE, the winner of American’s Best Dance Crew Season 6 Winner! 


Acquiring so much recognition at such young age doesn't prevent the amiable dancer to stop continue striving and growing!
The pretty and talented lady also recently started her own clothing line called Dotheads by Chachi.

Equipped with skills, style and endearing personality, Chachi is c
ertainly an ideal role model for the young generations!

Take a step back, put your worries aside, tell yourself that it’s just gonna be you, your movements and the music at it’s purest form today!

Recall the reason(s) why you started dancing and remember the feeling you got out from dance.

Dance is a never- ending-learning journey, don’t forget the process just because you are too focused on the goal!
Look around you, watch, listen and feel with your heart and have fun growing!

Phewww…I have a whole lot more of dance idols so it’s really tough to short list 5 only!! Feel free to share who are your dance idols and why they inspire you as well!!

SINGING - at the heart of CJ

[ NEW Vocal Classes this MAY | JUNE! ]


Understanding that everyone is different, CJ's unique vocal program is a powerful combination of vocal techniques and vocal science that serves to customize in our approach to help you achieve your vocal goals! 

Just as no two voices are alike, with the increasingly varied songs (and in different languages no less!) students sing in classes and in preparation for the stage, the knowledge and application of vocal technique are fundamental to being versatile, confident singers. 

Our vocal instructors are obsessed with music & the voice, and are natural cheerleaders for their students! The vocal learning journey is a well-trodden path and our instructors walk closely with their students, with dedication, passion and patience. 

CJ was always meant to be a music-centric powerhouse, with singing at its core. 

We welcome you. :)

Saturday 1PM Choreography Class and Introducing Eugene!

Hello Everyone!

Last weekend, Jojo finished up another round of choreography for her Saturday 1pm Choreography class, and we'd like to share the video with you!

Jojo's take on Ed Sheeran's "Sing" showcases a different style from her previous choreographies, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as our students enjoyed challenging themselves with various styles and genres of dance. :)

You can watch the video below!




We would also like to announce that Jojo will be away for the next few weeks, and while she's away, her Choreography class (Saturdays at 1PM) will be replaced by Eugene!

Come join us in Eugene's class as he injects a fresh vibe into our series of Open Dance Classes!

See you in class!


Check out Eugene's video below!

Round-Up of March and What's Coming Up in April!

Hello Everyone! (:

We're back with lots of exciting news and updates that we hope to share with you!

1. Check out our latest dance covers! 


The girls got together last weekend to present to you two short covers of Red Velvet's Ice Cream Cake and Miss A's Only You, both fun and catchy songs that many of our regular girl MV class students are sure to enjoy dancing to as well!


Jojo and Joanna also did a short cover of SHINee's Your Number a few weeks back! (: It's a Japanese release so many non-Shawols may not have heard of it, however, the dance choreography by Nakasone Rino (who also choreographed other SHINee songs, such as Replay and Juliette) really got the two 'Jo's itching to dance!


We are opening classes for Red Velvet's Ice Cream Cake and Miss A's Only You!

Red Velvet - Ice Cream Cake: Wed 8pm, commencing 22 April
Miss A - Only You: Thurs 8pm, commencing 7 May

(Drop us an email at hello@celinejessandra.com if you are interesting in reserving a slot for these classes!)

We hope you enjoyed watching both covers! (:

2. Hello, Cedar Girls' Secondary School!


We headed down to Cedar Girls' Secondary School early in the morning on 10 February and 7 April to conduct an hour-long workshop with the lovely and enthusiastic students from Cedar Girls'!

The first time round, we taught the girls GD & Taeyang's Good Boy~


We were invited back again, teaching two songs this time round: Come Back Home by 2NE1, and Crazy by 4Minute!


Thank you girls for your enthusiasm and active participation so early in the morning! We had a lot of fun, and hope you guys did too. :D

3. Presenting...CJ Students! :D


Regular CJ students will probably know that we have a practice of filming down our students during the last class of every MV course! We believe that its a great way for our students to showcase what they've learnt over the past few weeks and to also have fun dressing up and imitating their favourite idols~

Our instructors can see the effort they put in to practise and perfect their steps before class every week, and we're so so proud of them! Well done, everyone! (:

Here is a highlight reel of some of our students! It was a really tough choice trying to pick which classes to include in this video (There were too many!) :P



4. Lolita Pop course by AhLee (:


Our first Lolita Pop course by AhLee ended a couple of weeks back in March! We really love her choreography, and her students are really working it in this video! Fiercely sensual and confident at the same time, AhLee's choreography to "Bang Bang" and "Boyfriend" can be viewed below!



Video Credits: AhLee and Shipei

5. Jojo's choreography to "Hot in Herre"!


Check out Jojo's choreography from her Saturday 2pm choreo class!

The students spent 4-5 weeks learning this piece of choreography, cleaning up the steps and finally, filming it down :D Its really awesome seeing our students grow and improve as dancers over the weeks, and they really did justice to Jojo's choreography!

We'll be opening two classes for this song at the following time slots:

Bringing the girl power back with Gfriend's 'Glass Bead' and 4Minute's 'Crazy [미쳐]'!

Our girls are back with two dance covers, Gfriend's 'Glass Bead' and 4minute's 'Crazy [미쳐]'!

If you're a fan of Apink and/or Girls' Generation, you're definitely in for a treat! From youthful and vibrant dancing to catchy melodies, 6-member rookie girlgroup, Gfriend, is set to shine with their debut song, 'Glass Bead'. Have you missed dancing to girlish yet hardcore choreography? You won't want to give this a miss!

4Minute has also finally made their comeback with Crazy [미쳐], exuding a fierce, charismatic aura. 
Its been quite some time since we last got a taste of their strong, hard-hitting dancing and girl dominance concept, and we're totally digging it. 

Check out our cover below!
