Dance Moms- Chloe

Chloe Lukasiak was my favourite dancer on the TV show Dance Moms. She left the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) at the end of the 4th series/season due to not being able to cope with treatment by the dance teacher Abby Lee Miller.  Now, Abby seems to like to pick on people (although she claims everything she does is for the good of her dancers) but Chloe seemed to become a particular target, largely because Abby doesn't like Chloe's mum Christi. One incident that I thought was particularly nasty was when Abby refused to call Chloe by her name and instead referred to her as "that girl over there" or something similar. It seemed dehumanising to me.

I think that regardless of how you feel about your students' parents, you should never bring it into class and take it out on the students. Last year they showed the UK version of the show (called Dance Mums) with actress, dancer and singer Jennifer Ellison as the teacher. When Jennifer had a problem with one of the mums she got her student's grandma to bring her to classes instead. Abby could have done something similar or just asked Christi not to come in. (To be fair, Jennifer later had a problem with the grandma as well!). Since shows like this are edited, we don't know what's really going on but Abby appeared to treat Chloe horribly at times.

Chloe had been dancing at the ALDC since she was 2. Her favourite types of dance to perform are lyrical and musical theatre. She is now dancing with Studio 19 and has started a feature on YouTube called The Team Chloe Dance Project.

Here's Chloe performing her solo Follow You.





Also here's a link to a video of her new dance Almost Lover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXRO_6lnu0

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 …

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.
