Nike and renowned NZ choreographer Parris Goebel invite you to a live dance workshop with ReQuest Dance Crew this Friday 22 May from 6-7pm AEST.
Hosted on ReQuest’s Instagram, the all-female hip-hop dance crew, who have worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, will take you through a live, high energy Nike dance workshop for all ability levels.
Taking a break from the world stage, ReQuest Dance Crew’s live Nike dance workshop is created especially for the living room, giving us a new and fun way to move while we continue to stay at home. Known for her groundbreaking choreography, including Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” music video, Parris has choregraphed the easy-to-follow workshop exclusively for Nike. The workshop is choregraphed in one of ReQuest’s signature styles – Dancehall, a powerful form of dance anchored in Jamaican music, with nods to female empowerment and self-expression.
The IG LIVE Nike dance workshop will be led by ReQuest members Corbyn Taulealea Huch, Ling Zhang and Kirsten Dogden, all featured in the video.
Speaking about the Nike dance workshop, Corbyn said:
“It has been super inspiring to see how people have continued to keep active and positive while at home over these past months. Like us, Nike are encouraging people to keep moving, and so we are very excited to be collaborating on this together.”
“The ReQuest Crew and I want to empower girls and women to move, and to feel confident about themselves when they do it! We want to show how dance is a fantastic outlet for movement and self-expression. During this difficult time, virtual experiences like this can also help us stay connected and positive. This class is such a great opportunity for us to bring people together and create a community to uplift and support one another.
“We will be teaching a fun and feminine Dancehall routine, one of ReQuest’s signature styles. We will be hitting all the beats in the music and tapping into the lyrics, while having lots of fun. This class is not about getting every step right, it’s about taking that time to let go, move and enjoy yourself. Tune in this Friday to our Instagram to join us!”
The Nike dance workshop follows previous collaborations with the brand including Parris’ Force is Female workshop in Melbourne in 2018, which saw Parris mentor girls and young women through dance, and ReQuest Dance Crew’s launch of the Nike Melbourne Central store.
