Dance Cover Showcase: Gaia
Could you tell us who you are, where you’re from and why you have chosen this dance cover as your showcase?
Hi! I’m Gaia, I’m from a little town in northern Italy and I’ve chosen “Tail by Sunmi” as my showcase, because I think this is the style that suits me best!
(interview continues after the dance cover)
So how long did you have to study the choreography?
For this cover, it took me about an hour to study and clean the movements of the choreography.
How long does it normally take for you to memorize the choreography?
It normally takes me an hour or an hour and half, but for the boy-choreographies it could also become two hours, because I have to focus more on every single movement. However, it really depends on the difficulty of the choreography: if a choreo is easy for me, in 30 minutes I’m done studying it.
What was the most difficult part of the choreography?
The most difficult part of the choreography was at 00:12.. I struggled to do that move! I had a hard time coordinating my legs, arms and head. Another difficult part was the ending, it requires a lot of balance and practice.
Were you surprised that the choreography was easy / difficult and why?
Yes, I was surprised that the choreography was quite easy. Seeing other people doing the cover made me think that it was a super difficult choreo, but when I studied it, I just had to concentrate and I made it easily.
How did you come up with your outfit?
I always try to be as similar as I can to the original outfit and make-up. For this cover I had a body that was pretty similar to the original that Sunmi wore, so I added some knee socks, wore heels, did the same make-up and recorded!
Are there hidden bloopers / secrets in your dance covers?
Yes there are hidden bloopers! I had to record the cover several times, because I couldn’t do a pretty ending without falling. I kept falling because I lost my balance!
If you could give one positive message / advice to anyone out there who loves to do K-pop dance covers, what would it be?
If you love what you’re doing don’t stop, because nobody has the right to stop you.
And last but not least: If you could give a shout out to another K-pop dancer, because people need to see their showcase. Who would you like to give a shoutout to and why?
I think that every single person that loves dancing, does it in an unique way. Everyone is amazing if he/she does that with effort, passion and love; so, I won’t tag anyone in particular and I really hope everyone one day could be happy and satisfied with what he/she has made.
