New.F.O. Praised by Beyonce’s Choreographer
The new girl group New.F.O. was praised by world-renowned choreographer, Tricia Miranda, for their dancing skills.
A rep from the group’s agency, Enter Arts Global Entertainment, said, “New.F.O. visited the States to work on mixing and mastering its first single Bounce in October. The members received individual lessons from world-renowned choreographer, Tricia Miranda, and she complimented the members on their dancing skills.”
Tricia Miranda has worked with global pop stars including Beyoncé, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am, and Will Smith.
The rep said the choreographer said that the members’ dancing skills were excellent by anyone’s standards and added that she was sure that they would be able to put on the best performance.
The rep stated, “All of members have extraordinary passion for dance. Soyi swept grand prizes and popularity awards in all sorts of dance competitions prior to her debut and she obtained a first-rate certification as a hip-hop & punk dance instructor.”
New.F.O. put on its debut performance of Bounce on the November 25 broadcast of KBS’ Music Bank and took the performance to the high level, particularly for a rookie group.
Earlier, the group became a hot topic as a video of the group’s main vocalist Mima singing in Times Square of New York surfaced. Hollywood actor Justin Chon (Twilight) also declared himself a fan of the group when the members were in America. The group’s leader JN and Danah also drew interest as JN was revealed to be Ji Sun, a former member of Girls Day, while Danah is the little sister of Ta Goon from BoM.
The five-member group is slated to perform live on the December 9 broadcast of KBS2’s Music Bank.
