A social media enthusiast and excited to be part of the team, Jasmine admits to being on social media 24/7 since she enjoys creating, editing, and connecting with different people from around the world and hopes to pursue a career in social media.
K-pop was first introduced to Jasmine when she saw NCT U "BOSS" trending on YouTube:
“I have been hooked ever since. I love the fact that all songs are choreographed and how each new concept tells a story. All comebacks are so unique and creative, and I am always gaining outfit inspiration from new music videos!”
Nickname(s) include: "Ati"
Atiti is a professional performer, choreography and dance teacher from Finland.
"I was first introduced to K-Pop through 2PM by my high-school friend group back in Finland.
Before I realised what had happened it was too late. There was no going back!
Since then, I have been dancing, teaching and competing in the world of K-Pop dance. I absolutely love the art of imitating someone's movement and putting your own unique twist to it.
I strive to be an encouraging and uplifting teacher. I find it important to create a challenging but fun environment where everybody feels comfortable.
At the end of the day, getting to dance together is something one should cherish and I'm so excited to teach for LKDL and can't wait to dance together!"
Yana is a professional dancer and choreographer from Ukraine.
"Throughout my 7-year experience in the dance world I had the chance to create and perform for various artists on national TV, solo concerts and music videos, hold regular Jazz-Funk and High Heels classes in the biggest studio of Western Ukraine and devoted a huge part of my career to competition dance teams - both being part of several crews and mentoring my own.
K-Pop grabbed my attention after my favourite choreographer Brian Friedman posted Itzy’s “ICY” on his Instagram. From that point on Itzy became my ult and I got more and more involved into K-Pop, from just listening to various groups to taking part in competitions and filming dance covers with our team.
I really can't wait to start teaching at LKDL and am so happy to be part of it and to dance with everyone!"
"I'm Juju, a London-based dancer and performer! My preferred styles are hip-hop, commercial and I often focus on K-pop and J-pop covers too!

Super excited to teach alongside LKDL and learn new choreographies with you all! See you soon :) "

"Judes" and "Judy"
Ju-Hyun trained in ballet, tap and jazz as a child and began training in jazz funk and lyrical dance after moving to Hong Kong for university. She joined a university dance team and also taught ballet classes part-time.
She came across K-Pop accidentally after graduation whilst trying to work on her Korean skills (she's half Korean and half Hong Kong Chinese) and ended up staying for the fun choreography and community.
Judy cites Taemin's "Move" as being her all-time favourite K-Pop dance with her favourite artists being Sunmi, Hyolyn and BLACKPINK.
Outside of K-Pop dance she works 9-5 in supply chain (not even a little bit dance related!) and takes commercial and lyrical classes on weekends. She firmly believes that dance is for everybody and the most important thing is to have fun in class!
Growing up in Toronto, Canada, Selina began dancing at 4 years old, starting out with ballet, jazz, and acro. As a preteen, she found a love for K-pop, which led her to start dancing hip-hop and commercial styles starting from age 12, which she hasn’t stopped doing since!
She became a K-pop dance instructor in 2017 after being asked to teach as a part of a K-pop cover team back in Canada, and over her time there, taught over 100+ drop-in and private classes to both beginner and intermediate students alike.
Teaching dance is one of her favourite ways of enjoying the hobby, as she loves helping her students gain confidence and improve on their skills over time.
TWICE is her ultimate bias K-pop group, but she also is a fan of artists like NCT, ITZY, Sunmi, and EXO (having been an EXO-L since their debut almost 10 years ago!).
Outside of class, Selina is currently finishing her undergraduate degree at UCL and you can often find her teaching weekly classes or in performances for UCL’s Kpop Society.
Choreographer / Dance Instructor
(choreography Class Guest/cover)
Venus is one of our teachers covering our “K-Style Commercial” class and she will be sharing her own original choreography with us in the dance styles ranging from Jazz Funk, Commercial and Heels.
Typically, you’ll find her training at BASE Dance Studios amongst other established dance studios and she is known for her full-out strong performances and amazing memory.
Caring a lot about her students, she really “goes for it” and always encourages her students to do the same so that they feel empowered when they dance and leave class feeling confident.
Venus came to London from Hong Kong 2 years ago to study theatre arts which has enabled her to become aware of body movements and “feelings” when choreographing dance pieces.
Having trained in the dance styles of Jazz Funk, Commercial and Heels, she favours these dance styles the most and says:
"Steps are not that important as long as you got your groove and can feel the song properly! Dance is a journey we take together and we will work hard to learn the steps and have fun!”.
Although Venus will be focussing on teaching in our K-Style Commercial classes, she is no stranger to K-pop having come across them from when she was in high school and had since became obsessed with Big Bang and of course G-Dragon.
She used to do girl group K-pop covers for her old dance group.
More recently she has been pursuing her passion for Commercial industry dance training.

Mila is a professional ballet dancer and choreographer who graduated from the Russian Academy of Theatrical Arts from which she moved on to join a Russian ballet company, performing in numerous shows which enabled her to travel the world. Mila also studied contemporary, jazz and latin dance styles. Her experience has led her to focus on teaching which she continued when she moved to London. She absolutely loves teaching, inspiring students to work on their progress and help them to become confident dancers. She has a track record of working with diverse groups of people across different age ranges and abilities, and has also prepared students for competitions and performances.
Her passion for K-Pop started after watching BTS’s “Blood, Sweat and Tears” music video.
Their stage presence, meaningful lyrics and choreography blew her away.
“K-Pop definitely brings joy and happiness to my life,” she says, “It’s something that makes my eyes sparkle!”
Mila’s students describe her as a very motivating, demanding, yet caring teacher with high-energy classes that are always challenging and fun.
