A little something about Alicia...
Although Alicia started as an urban dancer and still is one, her interest in K-pop began in 2012 when she was introduced to Korean dramas. Very soon the dramas led to music videos and since K-pop is mostly dancing and awesome fashion what’s not to love? Alicia has been teaching K-pop classes ever since and has made a little niche for herself in the community. In 2013 she helped to found A.O Crew, which has speedily become one of Australia’s top K-pop crews. Her credits with A.O Crew include dancing back up for K-pop star Eric Nam at his 2014 Brisbane show and also appearing as special guest performers at the 2014 Korean Wave Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia. A.O Crew had the honour of representing Australia at the 2013 K-pop Cover Dance Festival in Gangwon, Korea and they hope to do this again soon. Their YouTube videos have hit over 500,000 views in total and grow steadily by the day.
In addition to A.O, Alicia also belongs to the Collektive, an urban crew who were first place winners and first runner ups of the 2011 and 2012 Australian Hip Hop Championships respectively. Prior to that she belonged to DVP (headed by Etienne Khoo and Shane Clarke), who were first place winners of the 2009 and 2010 Australian Hip Hop Championships, and who represented Australia in San Diego at the prestigious Body Rock in 2009.
Alicia trained overseas in Los Angeles in early 2014 where she also participated in renowned choreographer Gigi Torres’s “Establish Your Empire” programme. The programme gave her the opportunity to perform at Collaboration: Urban Dance Competition & Showcase and at the famed LA Carnival Choreographers Ball.
