it’s been a few months since i last taught a class, but here’s footage of my latest piece to “together” by sam smith, disclosure, nile rodgers, and jimmy napes .  taught this for my strictly funk alum class in philly at upenn this past weekend .

pretty sure i had this track on loop for about 2 weeks when i first heard it . anything with disclosure or sam smith can do no wrong !

E.P.I.C. Motion’s 2nd place set at PRIDE 5 . so much love to the dance fam and to all those who supported us on our journey . had to work through alot this season- juggling missed time in the aftermath of Sandy with back to back long nights of rehearsal with the craziness of work and life in general but- we pulled through .

cheers to PD fam bam and Static Noyze for placing and the rest of the east coast dance community !

HUGE thanks to all of the beautiful and talented dancers who came out to the first ever Funks NY Auditions this past weekend. What an amazing turnout and a warm welcome!

Congratulations to the 2012-2013 Funkanometry NY Company and In-Training dancers!

2012-2013 Funkanometry NY Company…

SO honored to be a part of history . unreal . 

I was really hesitant in uploading this video.. this was a project I worked on some months ago that was very close to my heart . Made this piece as a gift for someone who was very special to me . haven’t watched it in a while since i’ve had it locked away . so strange seeing it now after some time . 

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as i enjoyed creating it .

Directed, shot, and edited by Alex Nguyen .

much love .

Passionately Yours,

Paolo
