This genre of music, originating in South Korea, has taken the world by storm and has gained popularity on various music charts. K-Pop Dance Covers emerged around 2011 as part of the cultural storm of Korean pop culture. K-Pop cover videos have become one of the highest forms of tribute that fans use to honor and support their favorite artists. In this workshop series, you will learn choreography from popular Korean artists, BTS and others.
