Other than walking, public speaking, and showcasing our talent, one other very important portion of the competition is the opening dance number.
Today we went to Flying Dance Studios to take our very first dance class, taught by Secciya Ying Ying. Ying Ying is a famous Youtuber who posts Kpop dance covers, and I was actually already one of her students prior to getting in Sunshine Nation! A renowned dancer, Ying Ying has performed with various stars from Asia, and she was a Sunshine Girl waaay back in 2008, who received "Best Talent" and "Most Popular" awards in her year. She is a terrific instructor, and I am so excited to learn our opening dance number from her!
Our opening dance is a cover of Miss A's "Only You." Although I have learned quite a few Kpop dances, this one was more difficult than I thought! After two hours of madly swinging around, we barely grasped half of the dance, but it's okay because we will practice extremely hard! We will have another class tomorrow and I will be dancing my feet off until then!
