Singapore – MTV is presenting a bumper crop of content for music and dance fans in Asia. Music video dance tutorial programme Ok Danceoke is a new music show which debuted in August while regional monthly artist special MTV ASIA SPOTLIGHT will premiere in September. Both Ok Danceoke and MTV ASIA SPOTLIGHT are produced in Asia. Next month, the network will also roll out two new music chart shows EDM Countdown and Viral Countdown, adding to four existing chart shows Chart Attack Top 10, Alternative Countdown, Asia Countdown, and Urban Countdown which went on-air since June.
Ok Danceoke, the ‘Karaoke of Dance’, teaches signature dance steps and moves in an interesting and creative manner. The weekly half-hour programme sees instructors breaking down the choreography of the latest music videos to help fans groove confidently to their favourite songs in the comfort of their homes. Viewers are encouraged to get active and dance along as they brush up on their knowledge of the names and steps of the dance routines shown.
Ok Danceoke is shot and produced in Singapore. Production began at the end of February and is ongoing. Instructors featured in the show are Melissa Lim (a.k.a. Cat Lady) from Recognize Studios, Mohammad Alif (a.k.a. Alif Aircho) from Danz People, and Chloe Jong from Limited Edition.
