Hok, you think you can dance? Hok is currently collaborating with Nike HQ and continues to travel the world creating, choreographing, inspiring, and teaching dance. We caught up with Hok to have a chat. They treated us like true artists and I really appreciate that. Do you believe that everyone can be taught to dance? And is this how you feel when you express yourself with Dance? I am very anal about cleanliness, shapes and patterns and that has definitely come in handy when making things for the crew.
That piece will always have a special place in my heart. Wade was such a genius for that. When I first started dancing I absolutely loved it and lived for those moments.
One of my proudest moments with dance was when my crew and I performed the bench piece on Americas Best Dance Crew 8. We all collapsed into tears after we stepped off stage, there really are no words that can explain that feeling. Just by that moment in itself was worth the years of hard work that led up to it. Not to mention, we won an Emmy for it! I am able to be a part of the creative process for their visual presentation, which is usually about a year and a half ahead before the public sees a new product go on the market.
I choreograph the models and express how they want the concept to read with the product. Honestly everyone that I have worked with have all been amazing! All of them are hard workers and there is a reason that they become who they are today.
This year flew by so quick! Traveling to new countries will always be a must for me as well. My girlfriend and I started a passion project to spread love and are on a mission to snuggle around the world! You can follow our journey on Instagram Worldwidesnugglers. Photography by Ryan Feng.
