Singapore – If you don’t know yet, The Whoosh, The Lookie or The Body Wave, you’ll soon find out as music video dance tutorial programme Ok Danceoke returns for a second season this June. Back by popular demand, Ok Danceoke Season 2 features signature dance moves from music genres ranging from K-Pop, to Top 40s, to House.
From the iconic twist, to the groundbreaking moonwalk, to the swashbuckling Gangnam Style, dance is universal and integral to the success of a song. Ok Danceoke Season 2 takes that a step further by helping viewers master the latest moves in a fun, creative and memorable way. Instructors break down the choreography of the latest music videos such as ‘Knock Knock’ by TWICE, ‘That’s What I Like’ by Bruno Mars, to ‘Solo Dance’ by Martin Jensen; into easy to follow steps so that fans can perfect their groove without constantly hitting the replay button on the player.
Ok Danceoke Season 2 premieres on MTV Asia on 6 June, Tuesday at 8pm (WIB), 9pm (SG/PH) and 10pm (MY), with each episode made up of six music videos. The next day, from 7 June, one selected video will appear online every Wednesday for nine weeks. K-Pop fans are also invited to try out MTV Asia’s quiz (http://mtvasia.com/news/sdsqbe/we-know-your-signature-k-pop-dance-move-in-8-questions) to find out their signature K-Pop move.
This season also extends the MTV Asia and Musical partnership from Season 1, and challenges users to perform dance moves from excerpts of Ok Danceoke Season 2 music videos. The top 50 videos, judged on their popularity and the accuracy of the dance, will be incorporated into ongoing promotions for Ok Danceoke Season 2.
“We’re in conversation with our audience and our research tells us that they are in constant ‘audition mode’ on social media. This continued collaboration with Musical.ly not only allows dance enthusiasts to express their flair from mobile to TV screens, but reflects MTV Asia’s commitment to continually engage fans in fresh ways”, said Simon Bates, Vice President, Head of MTV APAC.
Shot and produced in Singapore, production for the show began in early-May. Season 2 also sees an expanded dance instructor mix – with the additions of Felicia Cher, specialising in K-Pop and Street Jazz; and the Scrach Marcs team of Rachel Lee and Marcus Tan, winners of The Dance Floor Season 2 competition and the Singapore Dance Delight Volume 6. Meanwhile, instructors Mohammad Alif (a.k.a. Alif Aircho) from Danz People, and Chloe Jong from Limited Edition, return this second season.
