Dance Videos

Recently I came across a dance video on YouTube (in my recommendations) of a girl called Kaycee Rice. I found this other video of Kaycee dancing with her partner Gabe De Guzman. It's called Monster and it's an interesting dance, it seemed a bit strange to me at first (lol) but it's good.

Kaycee and Gabe are in the 11 year old age category  in this video and the dance style is hip hop. Kaycee became an internet sensation at 10 when the video of her doing a solo called Werk (the one I was recommended) was posted on Twitter by singer Katy Perry. You can read the article and watch the video here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2345230/EXCLUSIVE-Katy-Perrys-Tiny-Dancer-How-superstar-turned-little-girl-internet-sensation.html

Kaycee is from Simi Valley in California and dances at Studio 13 Dance, which is owned by her mum Laura Rice. She does a variety of dance styles including hip hop, lyrical and jazz. Some of Kaycee's routines were choreographed by Tricia Miranda who has worked for music stars such as Missy Elliot, Jennifer Lopez, Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears and Beyonce.

Gabe (full name Gabriel) has won dance competitions at regional and national levels, featured on TV shows and video games and danced with celebrities including Bruno Mars and Will Smith. He's also done TV adverts and live theatre. I think he mainly does hip hop. Both Gabe and Kaycee auditioned for America's Got Talent in June.

I've also been watching the TV show Bring It! on Lifetime (it just started in the UK). It's about a dance team called Dancing Dolls in Jackson, Mississippi. They're taught by Dianna Williams (Miss D) and the type of dancing they do is called "hip hop majorette". It's similar to Dance Moms, the series follows the girl's rehearsing and performing each week.

It seems good so far. Dianna is a tough coach but she doesn't appear to be malicious, like Abby Lee Miller (from Dance Moms) can come across as sometimes. There is some drama, mainly with the mums, lol. Dianna makes them stand outside the studio if they want to watch! This was a dance style I didn't know anything about, so it's good to see something new.

Here is a video of the Dancing Dolls performing in Memphis at the Prancing Tigerettes Jamboree 2014. The Prancing Tigerettes are their rivals but this appears to be an event they were hosting.

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…

Christmas Round-up

In October I did a Hallowe'en round-up post. Since today is Christmas Eve I thought it would be cool to do a Christmas round-up. :)

Books

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (Narnia)

This is the 2nd book in the fantasy children's series The Chronicles of Narnia. Originally published in 1950, it's become a kid's classic. The series is about the magical land of Narnia which is actually meant to be Heaven. It's ruled over by the great lion Aslan (who is like Jesus). But if you're not religious (like me) it's still an entertaining story.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is about siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie who are evacuated from London to the country during the Blitz. They go to stay with Professor Kirke who lives alone apart from his housekeeper Mrs. Macready. While looking round the house the youngest girl Lucy discovers an entrance to Narnia in the back of a wardrobe. She comes out in a snowy…
