Shaun Evaristo

Shaun Evaristo is a professional dancer and choreographer from California. He is only 27 but has already worked with several major artists, such as Omarion and Vanessa Hudgens, and also major Korean popstars like Taeyang, Big Bang, 2NE1 and Se7en. Could you guess? I love precision combined with his musicality.


Edit:
Shaun just wrote down the story of his life as a dancer << click >>. So, I'll update my post from last year (July 2011). There are many things I haven't known before.

He moved to LA in 2006, trying to succeed as a dancer. LA has always been the Mecca of all dancers. If you want to take classes, the probability of finding the best teachers is the highest over there... It only took a month until he started teaching for Millenium Studios (again this is THE place to go). It's also the time around when youtube started to evolve and he became famous... That's how he got to Kpop and to travel internationally to teach all over the world.

He now has his own dance studio Movement Lifestyle << click >> but it's much more than "only" a dance studio... it's a concept - evolving from dance, combining art and artists through dance, choreography, design, filming.

It is because of him and other major dancers that dance is truely a profession nowadays. Something one can really do for a living. Please don't laugh - apparently, that's making him angry when someone doesn't take his job seriously...

We're still far away from that point in Germany but it's a great start...
