A few years ago, the TV show Asians commonly watched was “The Wade Robson Project.” Now recently, it is “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Asians absolutely, perhaps as equal as karaoke itself, love choreographed dancing. It is but one of the only things Asians are capable of being better at than other non-Asians. We can easily see this, as the top competitors on America’s Best Dance Crew are, you guessed it, Asian American crews: Kaba Modern and Jabbawockeez (with the exception of their lonesome black member).

If you look at most dance organizations on a college campus, or even dance organizations in general, the largest and more popular ones are founded and consist mostly of Asians. Not all Asians are able to do choreographed dancing, it’s just that most (exceptional) choreographed dancing is being done by Asians.

Moreover, Asians love watching choreographed dancing. They flip out in a moment’s notice if some event were to arise that involved some form of choregraphed dancing showcase or competition. Asians become significantly turned on seeing sexy dance moves, remixes, flips, and jumps, “isolations” and the like. Asians are even in love with the image that a dancer must portray. It’s quite tricky to maintain this image, but Asians find this incredibly attractive, let alone the ability to do choregraphed dancing.

Girls: Easy, just dress like a (hip-hop) dancer. You don’t necessarily have know how to dance. Just maintain a rythym. To accomplish this, just go to the beat, count in your head…you may captivate an Asian guy’s attention with your cool cute urban dancer outfit, but not having any rythym would drive them away.

You indeed also have to come with the same urban-dancer-hip-hop outfit, but you may also need to know some actual dance moves rather than just having rythym. Asian ladies love a nifty, fancy dancer and if you can pull this off, you’ve done more than enough to impress her. And do not under any circumstances mix “cool dance moves” with “freaking,” this does not qualify you as a dancer, but just another dirty hound in the club. You’re trying to impress, not harass.

And most of all, be sure to mention something about Kaba Modern or Jabawockeez being your favorite dance crews on A.B.D.C. Success is yours.

    I don’t just LIKE choreographed dancing…I LOVE choreographed dancing :D

    Asian artists typically have very skillful backup dancers who are practically ALWAYS in sync. It’s remarkable.

    maybe it’s due to our usually perfectionist” nature? =P

    i remember being the only asian american taking dance classes at Long Beach State or at Moro Landis . I am so proud of the many crews and dancers that are enjoying the art. wish there was a Pac Modern back in my days!

    We own ABDC (except for season 2 which was a rip off) and any other choreographed dancing so theres no question we like choreographed dancing

    I hate to be a stickler for detail but I believe the guy’s name is Wade Robson, not Robinson.

    Good insight on this. It’s funny how the only way to be faux-cool is to go ghetto. What happened to dressing sharp and being a gentleman?

    Funny. I went out last night and guys started break dancing and sure enough, they were Asian. I don’t know where it came from but yall got us on that one lol!

    I think the breakdancing thing is really big in the Fil-Am (Filipino American) community…great for the JB’s to break through. I think Filipinos have an affinity for something musical…notice that many of the “DJs” out there are Fil-Am (Qbert, Icy Ice, Beat Junkies, etc.).

    I think choreographed dancing has multiplied in popularity due to the rise of Korean/Asian boy bands such as DBSK, Rain, ss501, etc. It’s not a true Asian boyband without good choreography :) !

    Chanel Purses that dot the collection, they’re very taste-specific, but I could see some of the more subdued version working quite well with summery white linen or various bright colors for contrast. From Chanel Outlet

    @Kvietgrl,
    You, my friend, ROCK! I found just the information I already searched everywhere and just couldn’t find.
