& Company Founder
Nicknames include: "Lou" "LouLou" "Louie" "Quannie" "Quan"
Louise is the Creator and Company Director of Love K-Pop Dance London and has been dancing for over a decade. She also had a 10 year career in marketing, working within the media and technology business world and was Director of Marketing. She achieved her formal dance instructor training in 2014. In terms of teaching, she has choreographed for London's 800 year old parade "The Lord Mayors Show", a leading children’s gymnastics team, and at various London gyms. Her dance experience has also taken her abroad for performances.
Louise has a few years experience in teaching K--Pop dance and has chosen to specialise in this area due to the fun culture and the sense of connection it brings. Her interest in K-Pop all started with the infamous 2NE1.
Outside of K-Pop dance, you'll find her training in commercial dance and teaching her own choreography in the Company's "K-Style Commercial" class.
Although she is an alumni of WAC Performing Arts College London & previously performed for various dance troupes (street dance and contemporary), companies and events in and outside of London, she still considers herself a late starter when it comes to dance and has found purpose in showing others that it’s never too late to learn and enjoy.
Louise truly believes everyone can dance if they are open, focused, determined and passionate enough about it - "With the right attitude, you can achieve anything!"
"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!
"Luda", "Liud" and "Milochka"
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.
"T" and "Tel"
Having enjoyed dance when she was younger, Terri has since trained at different dance studios in London while working as a freelance dancer. She has appeared in many music videos and on TV as a backup dancer.
She initially got into K-Pop a long time ago listening and dancing to BoA. But after moving to England, she then focused her dance training only on commercial and choreography since K-Pop was not popular at the time. Her passion was re-kindled once again when she joined some K-Pop dance groups and participated in London performances and competitions.
Terri achieved her teaching qualification in 2016, and began to specialise in teaching K-Pop dance, and has been really enjoying her K-Pop dance journey so far. She wants to share the joy and happiness of K-Pop music to as many people as possible and believes class should be about the students having fun.
After working for a few different venues and companies, Terri has finally set up on her own and currently runs her own regular K-Pop classes at K.ARC Dance.
"Potathao" or "Tae Tae"
Thao is currently pursuing her career as a Musical Actress from when she made her professional debut in London’s WestEnd at the age of 18 through open auditions. From then on she had the opportunity to understudy a leading role touring the UK & Europe and played different main roles in performance musical workshops.
Originally training to be a primary school teacher, she did not professionally train in the Arts, however has experience in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Bhangra, Zumba and Hip-Hop. She wishes to share her ongoing passion with her fellow students. Her key phrase is ‘to achieve anything, you must start from somewhere and remember to enjoy every moment of the journey’.
She was exposed to K-Pop through her school friends where she first saw ‘Gee’ back in ‘09 by Girls’ Generation. In her late teens, she used to do K-Pop singing/dance covers on YouTube which lead her to winning SM Entertainment’s 1st K-Pop Global Contest on YouTube within the singing category.
At university, she was her cheerleading team’s captain and participated in many sports such as trampolining/gymnastics. Outside of K-Pop, she often does arrangements with her Acapella group and works at a local gym.
She is known to be a happy virus, caring and super supportive. She believes that dancing should not be a product but a way of embracing fun and truthfully expressing yourself as an individual.
