Weekly Music Video

This week's video is The 7th Sense by NCT U. They are a brand new Korean boyband, fomed this year and the first group to be launched by South Korean S.M. Entertainment since EXO in 2011. Their name stands for Neo Culture Technology and the whole group is made up of unit based in different countries.

The first unit is NCT U and it consists of members Taiel (full name Moon Tae-il)*, Taeyong (Lee Taeyong), Doyoung (real name Kim Dong-young)  and Jaehyun (Jung Yoon-oh) who are all Korean, Ten (real name Chittaphon Leechaiyapornkul) who is Thai and Canadian Mark (Mark Lee). They are based in Seoul, South Korea. The other units are set to debut in Tokyo, Japan and China. They were all part the pre-debut group SMRookies.

The 7th Sense is NCT U's first single which came out on 6th April and they also released their second single WITHOUT YOU on 9th April. There are two versions of WITHOUT YOU, one Korean and one Chinese but I think The 7th Sense only has a Korean version.

There's also a performance video for The 7th Sense, check it out here:

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.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
