They stepped on it, moved it, and grooved their presence for a legendary day in Dubai. On the 25th of May 2012, famous choreographers from all around got themselves together for a spectacular workshop and ended the event with
performances for all the passionate dancers and fan followers in Dubai.
They started the workshop at 9:00am, which carried on till 5:00pm and shortly followed a brilliant evening packed with fabulous performance at 8:00pm at “The Venue” in Downtown Dubai. They had Blake McGrath, a Canadian professional dancer, pop singer and choreographer, who is best known for being on the first season of So You Think You Can Dance in 2005, and also pursued a music career and released his first single ” The Night (Only Place To Go)” in 2010. He won the heart of every soul at the workshop with his soulful jazz routine.
Kenny Wormald, an American professional dancer and actor who is best knownfor his appearances on the MTV network show and acting skills, splashed Dubai with a Hip-hop routine of a Bieber song (Boyfriend). He not only swept
every girl’s heart with his performance during the workshop but also taught all the techniques to the dancers who attended it.
Also on board we had other extremely famous choreographers like Laurieann Gibson, a creative director, award winning choreographer and Emmy-nominated director. She is best known for her work with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. The workshop shook in ecstatic vibes when she performed Lady Gaga’s Born this Way routine.
Carmit Bachar, an American singer, dancer, model, actress and showgirl. She was a member of the successful pop/R&B group, “The Pussycat Dolls” and one of the main vocalists of the group, along with Nicole Scherzinger and Melody Thornton. She left the group in February 2008 and started solo. Her stupendous guest performance during the workshop where she performed a fusion of most dance styles, set wild fire in the hearts and minds of all audience.
But this evening would have been incomplete without the heart- throbbing performance of Shontelle. After most tiring day was coming to an end for the choreographers and the dancers, Shontelle hit the stage with the right note in her voice and got everyone on their feet and dancing. She retired with her famous song “Impossible” which made it a memorable day for every soul attending the event.
