Koharu Suguwara came across my feed last week, and I've watched all the videos of her that I can since then. I haven't found much intel, other than she's a Japanese dancer and choreographer who has been featured at the prestigious Urban Dance Camp for the past couple of years. Anyone know anything else about her?
What strikes me strongest is how emotional and passionate her dancing is. (She even dances to "Emotion" by Mariah Carey in another great piece.) She uses her facial expressions and body to convey feelings in such a raw and authentic way, while also just killing whatever choreo she is doing. That's a really powerful combination.
There's also something reminiscent of another pair of street dance stars Keone and Mari. Her use of tempo changes, hand expressions, and joyful movement echoes that amazing pair. It's interesting to compare them by watching Keone and Mari perform some of Koharu's choreo here.
Keep an eye on Koharu!
