Want to bust out moves like BTS?
If you’ve ever dreamt of dancing like your favourite K-Pop star, now’s your chance.
K-Pop Academy returns to Abu Dhabi for 2019 with a six-week choreography course that will perfect your moves to those insanely catchy K-Pop anthems.
It’s totally free and open to applications from anyone aged 14 or over.
Starting on 29th June, the weekly sessions will be led by trainers from the Korean entertainment industry. These include Roh, who has danced on stage with top K-Pop talents including Winner, Black Pink and Icon.
Applications for the experience are open from now until 23rd June. Classes take place at the Korean Cultural Center Abu Dhabi, from 29th June to 8th August with three weekly timings to choose from.
Organised annually by the Cultural Center, it’s the capital’s K-Pop Academy’s fourth outing.
So far 200 students have completed their K-Pop training, as passion soars for the genre in the UAE. Korean boy band EXO even saw one of their anthems added to the repertoire at popular attraction The Dubai Fountain, following a visit to the emirate in 2018.
To apply for the K-Pop Academy, you must be aged 14 or over. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
