K-pop Dance Popular New Trend at Charlotte Dance & Fitness Studios
The K-pop craze is catching on worldwide and in the Queen City. Now some local dance and fitness studios are teaching the popular dance moves.
“K-pop is able to hit every nail on the head when it comes to culture and being diverse and making sure it’s a safe place for everybody,” Svay says.
With groups like BTS getting so much attention and performing at major events like the Video Music Awards, Ebb & Flow owner Lauren Childs added Svay’s K-pop class only a few months ago.
“I think a lot of the younger crowd is really familiar with it, and then the older crowd that was there was like ooo… something new, and I haven’t heard of this, maybe I can give it a go,” Childs says.
She says the classes are great for K-pop fans or people just looking for a fun way to exercise.
“No matter your age, it’s a great outlet. It’s challenging mentally and physically. It’s a good emotional release,” Childs says.
Right now, Ebb & Flow is only offering private K-pop lessons due to the pandemic, but plans to return to full classes soon.
