2017 Artists Share their experience

Yuki Hasegawa – Choreographer – Azul Dance Theatre

It was a very exciting and memorable experience for me and Azul dancers to be a part of StylePointe 2017. I was also so happy to meet and work with the young talented designer Angelia Lin.

At the first moment when I saw her dresses, I fell in love with them! However, the challenging thing for me was that there were two different styles: two long dresses and two short dresses. So, I have been thinking, thinking, thinking,,, about a month. How can I use them together in the one dance piece. Finally, I came up with the idea of the story and the props: a treasure box, a key, and a rose, so that the audience can stay with the theme of the dance.

Fortunately, I have four lovely talented dancers in my company who perfectly fit in these dresses!! I choreographed and we rehearsed in July and August. We completed the narrative dance which included some contemporary dance movements with the dancers with short dresses.

We truly believe that Angelia’s dresses looked even more beautiful with dancing, music and lighting on the stage at the show!!

StylePointe 2017 was an experience of a lifetime!! Who doesn’t want to be a part of New York Fashion Week?! Not only was I apart of it, I also got to do my number one passion, “DANCE” in it, as well! So much fun and all the artists were extremely nice! I hope to be a part of this for years to come!! THANK YOU!!
