So fun putting this choreo together for @nature.nchworld!! And so rare that I get to see the reactions of artists I choreograph for remotely, so this makes me happy ? I’m def more accustomed to creating for male artists/groups simply because they gravitate towards me more (although I’d love that standard in the entertainment industry to change one day…? cause if you’ve seen or followed my body of work, ladies look AMAZING doing my stuff ??), but it was still fun to dust off another side of me for this one ✨
Sorah Yang is rather new into the K-Pop choreography scene as recently she had choreographed for girl group, NATURE ! Seeing how her moves are getting positive reactions from many fans, they also hope that they will get to see more of her participation in the near future.
