Ki S.

Englewood, CO

I will teach whatever you're more interested in: Powermoves or on your feet liquid style dancing. You will become a great dancer. I don't really like categorizing the style because I incorporate many. I will choreograph moves centered around your personality and dance style.
I teach also a feminine side of Hip-Hop for the ladies, some call it liquid, flow, pop n lock, or animation, which is also for the guys.

I've traveled around the world dancing and I'm going on American Ninja Warrior for the 3rd time.
