STREET DANCE FEST IN HAWAII
Pan-Pacific Festival presents the Annual Street Dance Fest in Hawaii! Dancers and enthusiasts of hip-hop and jazz-funk dance styles in Japan practice year-round for this opportunity to perform in Hawaii at this exciting event. Likewise, local dance crews from Hawaii enter the Dance Fest to show off their newest, talented moves in the trendy dance phenomenon. Participants from both Japan and Hawaii will showcase their dance skills as they enjoy wowing the crowd!
Our Commentators will be kazuki and NOPPO from the famous Japanese group, ST kingz, a pioneering performance & choreography team that celebrates 12 years in the industry. Appearances include dancing for Mariah Carey (2008 MTV Video Music Awards Japan) and winners for 2 consecutive years (2010 & 2011) at “Body Rock Dance Competition”, a highly acclaimed dance competition in the U.S. Also a stellar performance at 2018 World of Dance (season 2) on NBC.
The group has conducted workshops around the world, visiting over 20 countries. ST kingz has performed at the world’s leading Big Maison HERMES fashion show (2016) and the music festival “West Gigantic City Land”. As an official partner of Sony’s “Motion Sonic Project”, they participated in the world’s largest technology festival “SXSW”. The project won the bronze award in the design category of the Cannes International Advertising festival, the world’s leading advertising award.
Kazuki and NOPPO will comment on technique, style and execution in this relaxed and friendly exhibition. Then on Sunday afternoon, ST kingz and the guest dancers will present a special routine to celebrate the final event of the 3-day festival weekend. Come and see this exciting performance just prior to the start of the Pan-Pacific Parade, in front of the Moana Surfrider Hotel viewing stand.
