JULIJA NIKITINA

Julija has been dancing for approximately 20 years. She began her dance journey in the Flamenco style, which she pursued for 16 years. However, since 2019, she has immersed herself in the world of K-Pop. Her love for this style was sparked when she accidentally came across BTS's "Blood, Sweat and Tears" music video. Julija is drawn to K-Pop not only for the style itself but also for the positive impact of the music, which always lifts her spirits.

Although Julija started as a K-Pop student, she has been a dance coach and the leader of the LoVe2 Dance Crew since 2020. Together with her group, they have recorded several cover videos, which can be viewed on their YouTube channel.

AnNA KAVTARADZE

Performance has always been an integral part of my life, initially in theater acting and now in dancing. For me, dance is above all a passion, the ability to live a whole life in a few minutes, and the opportunity to make music visible.

The world of K-pop opened up for me with Blackpink's song "Boombayah," which inspired me to dance K-pop and changed my life for the better. K-pop classes are a fantastic opportunity to meet people with whom you can share your interests and perform together!

I believe that in teaching dance, the most important thing is to help students enjoy dancing and not worry about how they look while dancing. In addition to K-pop, I also dance styles like Hip-Hop, High Heels, and traditional Georgian dances.

But what is K-pop anyway?

K-pop (short for Korean pop) is a popular music genre from South Korea. Kpop, formerly known as Gayo (가요), started in the 90s, but became popular in 2000. K-pop is "popular music" in South Korea, the term is also often used in a narrower sense to describe a modern form of South Korean pop influenced by styles and genres from around the world, such as experimental, rock, jazz, gospel, hip hop, R&B, reggae , electronic dance, folk, country, classical and traditional Korean music. K-pop style is actually a broad style that varies from feminine movement to vigorous choreography. Our goal is to create a positive and free atmosphere in the class, where we can share the joy of Korean music and dance. We can try different choreographies, go to performances and competitions.
