Dance Like Everybody's Watching: K-pop Cover Dance

Growl

The choreography for EXO's "Growl" set a new standard for K-pop dance choreography. Released in July 2013, the video breaks new ground with one continuous shot of the group performing the dynamic dance coupled with new techniques that divide up the 12-member group in various configurations.  Against an abandoned warehouse backdrop, the grey color palatte is punctuated by the color of the dancers' ties and shoes. Performances by cover dance teams seek to embody both the choreography and the styling of the video.
