Dance Moms Music Videos

Two of the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) students from the reality show Dance Moms have released music videos recently. Following in the footsteps of former student Brooke Hyland and current student Mackenzie Ziegler aka Mack Z, Nia Frazier and Kendall Vertes are also launching singing careers.

Sadly the whole thing has been made into a big competition between the girls because the dance teacher Abby wanted to manage Nia's career but her mum Holly went "behind Abby's back" and contacted singer-songwriter Aubrey O'Day to arrange a meeting. Holly feels that Abby doesn't have Nia's best interests at heart. Since Kendall's mum Jill is happy for Abby to manage Kendall, it's turned into a rivalry. I don't think there's anything wrong with lighthearted competition, but on Dance Moms you can see the whole thing is affecting Nia and Kendall. So this isn't a "Vs" post, I'm just featuring both girls' videos here today. :)

I couldn't find an official upload of Kendall's, maybe its being released later. I'll post a clip for now and update it when there's an official full version.

Here's Nia's video for Star In Your Own Life. Star In Your Own Life Remix is available on iTunes now.

And Kendall's video for Wear Em Out. Payton, another member of the ALDC, is one of Kendall's back-up dancers.

Update 16/12/15: The previous video was removed but here is the official Lifetime upload.

There is a full length version but isn't as good quality. It looks like it was filmed at an event, maybe the video premiere? Here's the link:

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…

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 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.
