First Super Junior, now SHINee…

It was one thing for one SME idol group Super Junior to jack Lyle’s (two) choreo’s … now another idol group, SHINee (one I like) has done it…

This is interesting. My friend Sam from North Carolina (raise up, take your shirt off, spin it like a helicopter) brought it to my attention.  This  video is of a Korean boy band doing my disturbia choreography to the song “just dance” by Lady GaGa. This was probably taken from our WOD Pomona video. You can see the actual choreography from that video here (starts at 3min)

This whole thing kind of boggles my mind. How can the “choreographer” take pride in their work knowing it isn’t really theirs? I mean congrats you copied the choreography dead on, but that’s about all you really did. I bet it would have been easier to come up with simple yet affective two steps for these “talented” dancers than taking the time to learn my routine off of youtube anyway. If you like the choreography that much then why not do it to the song it was intended for? There was a lot of thought put into the movements that directly correlated to the actual song. Now the choreography means nothing at all. I mean sure it gets the job done but it’s just movement now. No meaning, no depth, no substance, just movement. From the looks of things they have a pretty big budget so why not just ask me to do something for the artist. I would be more than happy and being that i am not considered a big name i would have probably been cheaper than anyone else.

In the end there is little to no chance at all of me getting compensation let alone any credit for this. It just sucks that those who take the time, effort and hard work to create can go over looked by artist and labels. In the end we are small fish in their pond and as of now there is little we can do about it. Thank God for Movement Lifestyle…

Super Junior jacked Lyle’s choreo

Just like the title says.. SuJu jacked Lyle Beniga’s “Mic Check” choreo.

0:25 mark

2:17 mark

If you’re gonna jack someone else shiz at least do it right. Not to mention the fact that it looks like they totally carbon copied Jabbawockeez. I mean masks are whatever, but the movements and what not are so jabba.

SuJu fans probably think it’s ok, but I don’t think it’s right for an artist to use someone else’s choreo unless they asked permission and/or it was made for them. This was something he did in the studio and while others probably learn it and put it on youtube, they’re not famous and are not on national television. Especially when the show is title “Star Dance Battle 2010” and it wasn’t made specifically for them.

Shaun Evaristo on Pacific Rim Video

Choreographer Shaun Evaristo was interviewed by Pacific Rim Video for Alexis Avila and Sheroes’ Dancing For Cause Work shop to benefit Gawad Kalinga of The Philippines. The workshop was on Friday 11/20 at Team Millenia’s The Bridge Studio in Fullerton, CA.

If you’re not familiar with Team Millenia, you may remember them from ABDC and every summer they have their Summer Intensive workshop. You all should be familiar with Shaun, especially since he choreographs for YG Entertainment artists.

TaeYang is asking WHERE U AT?

TaeYang just released his new digital single, “Where U At?

I’m not going to go into details other than Lyle Beniga and Shaun Evaristo totally kill this choreo. So does TY.  So it’s safe to say that Shaun wasn’t only doing GD, but TaeYang’s project while he was in Korea.

What I want to know, is how come they come up with sick choreo’s for TaeYang, but when it comes to GD, its just not as intricate or looks just as awesome. Oh well. Here you go.

Enjoy the coolness of this song and the choreo because the choreo is sick. And the fact that Lyle and Shaun are both in it makes it cooler. That means the level of skills were all up to par and not lacking.

While I’m at it, here’s a piece that Lyle did for the movie FAME. It’s the Halloween piece.

Also a Lyle with s**t kingz workshop tour in Tokyo. This is just too cool not to show. I always love how you can tell if an American choreographed it as opposed to a Japanese.
