Untapped Dancer Story: Start Something Great

Michelle Kawpeng

Metro Malina • Philippines

Hip hop and street dance is very popular now in the Philippines. As a contemporary dancer, it was really difficult to find a place for me to keep dancing since after college, all the independent teams were street teams... All the contemporary dance companies I knew of all moved in a modern ballet way, which was beautiful but not my style. Then one day, I just decided that maybe I could create my own team... People I could be with... Who wanted to express themselves in a language we could all understand. I just started last year, and it's been amazing. Our number is still small but our heart keeps pushing. :) hoping for the best!!
