**This episode is best listened to with HEADPHONES!**
Keone and Mari are the epitome of dance powerhouses with ever so gentle voices so we did our best to boost the volume and balance everything as best we could. Its not perfect but the words said hold much value; its too good not to give a listen.
We talk about their dance origins and how deep their connections into Urban Dance or what the beginnings of were at the start of their journeys as International Choreographer/Teachers.
If you're ever in San Diego…and want to see what Mari was talking about regarding certain wall prototypes.
I searched high and low for those specific "Urban Legends" workshop classes that both Keone and Mari spoke about but it seems like everything seems to have been deleted before 2011 but in taking a look I rediscovered a lot of videos from super dope choreographers/dancers that are worthy of a peek:
I tried so hard to find a clip of the Coldplay piece that they said was the first song they ever collaborated on. Its so hard finding specific pre2009-2010. In the process you do find gems and if you go down their rabbit holes you'll find some pretty memorable and game-changing stories depicted in dance form.
Nghia Pham. Wow I think we've all seen the reposts of workouts that they do with Nghia and its crazy to now understand their mentality to working out has more to do with how they achieve the athletic movement they push themselves to do FOR DANCE rather than doing workouts to target cosmetic areas. I think we can all work a little bit harder.
Now lets all work even harder. Don't forget to check out Nghia's Instagram to see their current level.
He can we not address NBC's World of Dance?
Lets just show you.
