Aus who's born in Texas and bred in Kentucky, is in town for a 12-week residency with local dance institution, Studio Wu. He'll also be one of the judges for the CODE:EDGE 3 Asia Dance Finals later this month.
He's choreographer and performer with The Imperial House of Waacking founded by his father Tyrone. As a dance style, it was birthed in the 1970s. Yes, the disco era, so that makes it about as old as I am!
Pretty high energy and adrenalin. Just watching the moves gets you hot and breathless. But it was a different kind of 'hot' when Trinity Lim let herself loose with some girls' hip hop moves. The Malaysian lass who's an instructor with Studio Wu (just like our other guest Andy Lee who doubles up as Business Manager) is also choreographer of her all-girl group Dancologists. It's easier reading the name than saying it aloud, but I managed. Give it a try! Dan-co-lo-gist-s. She was one half of the winning team for the group category at last year's competition. This year, her group is the only representation from Malaysia.
