AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL COMPANY-  The Exposure Movement teams up with AgencyEA (agencyea.com) and OSIP's Walter Cunningham Jr. on a 3-day event production in Denver, Colorado.  The spectacular stage and sets were custom-built by AgencyEA, as were the lighting production, mag screens, graphics, and more.  Exposure Movement provided the choreography for the ensemble dancers and singers, along with assisting in styling, costumes, and directing!  Celebrity artists that were in attendance included Kelly Clarkson, Remote Kontrol, Steele Sisters, and Big Head Todd.  We were so blessed and fortunate to work with such a crazily talented crew.  Some of the many collaborations of both  AgencyEA and OSIP:   Oprah's Farewell Spectacular,  Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama, Harpo Productions "Trip of a lifetime," to name a few.





EXPOSURE L.A.-  keeps growing and growing!  Another amazing week at a place that feels more and more like home, as Hollywood sets as the "City to BE" during the summer.  Getting ready for pilot season, a lot of simmering ideas and opportunities are just underway...our recent graduates are more than prepared to embrace it all!!

First day, just landing at LAX, and off to Nappytabs Dance Studio for a private workshop with "So You Think You Can Dance" choreographer, Sonya Tayeh!  Her assistant is none other than Melody Lacayanga, from Season 1, and the dancers are up for an incredible challenge that is overwhelming, and leaves their bodies sore and emotionally drained, which is how we like it!  For the rest of the week, the talent and training never stops, as they go back-to-back-to-back, from one studio to the next, Edge Performing Arts, Debbie Reynold's, Millennium, and Movement Lifestyle.  They take from choreographers that are the creme de la creme and the attitude is the s
ame through it all.  Hungry, with an appetite for anything dance...ballet, contemporary, jazz, breakdance, hip hop, and the fusion of it all!

Towards the end of the week, the dancers film their first DancePlug Demo, and work with the director and videographer to create an HD video that shows off their best skills!  Check out their individual DancePlug sessions!  Thank you Anh for being so informative and accommodating!!  Lastly, Exposure L.A. would not be the same without a high intensity show to end the week...Monsters of Hip Hop presents "The Monsters Way," at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, a dance production with a crazy cast and choreographers.  Awe-inspiring!

ANOTHER EVENTFUL TRIP TO LOS ANGELES!  Even more talent and more passion than before...living in a historical Hollywood Hills home for a week, can't top that!

This year, the dancers come out and learn from a variety of different teachers as usual, but then they also experience a couple of add-on features this time around.  One being, a private workshop with the one and only, Chris Jacobsen, who drives down one early morning to teach them at Debbie Reynold's studio!  From Edge Performing Arts Center, Millennium, Debbie Reynold's, and yet now another dance environment, in the space of Movement Lifestyle...the girls' schedule is packed with the best of the best choreographers.  Tony Czar teaches to "Dance," by Big Sean, the hit song of the summer and one of the girls' favs, then onto Nick DeMoura, and the precision and techniques of Matt Cady and Kyle Hanagami, to name just a few.

At the end of this week, one of the best Monsters of Hip Hop shows yet!  Danceplug presents "Full Circle," at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, a dance production with a crazy cast and choreographers.  Speechless and more Speechless, every year!  Check it out!

DANCE CHICAGO selected Lauren Garner's "Lux Aeterna," to showcase in the Young Voices category.


August 3, 2010 - August 8, 2010


ONE OF THE BEST TRIPS YET!  So much talent and so much passion...with no perfect words to describe all the images in our heads, the only quick comment that comes to mind is that it's been completely Raw and Uncut.

Stepping off the plane and right into the studios with Laura Edwards, Tony Czar, and Jobaris for one day at Debbie Reynold's studio, then onto the next one as David Moore teaches to a Chris Brown oldie, "I love you."  Getting to take class right alongside Tucker Barkley as Ian Eastwood subs a class at Millennium, then bumping into a couple people from SYTYCD as the choreography changes direction in Lashaun's class.  An unexpected gift as DJ Guthrie's name is put on the list at the Edge to teach a class, and it ends up being one of the most dynamic pieces of the week.  Rushing into class to Krump with Miss Prissy, and Paige Niebling is pulled out to battle the best.  Definitely not overlooking being able to still take from the longtime favs:  Joaquin Escamilla, Leslie Scott, Denise Leitner, Rei Aoo, Eddie Garcia, Yusuf Nasir, and Andre Fuentes, just to name a few. 

Best of all, what a way to end the week by watching the unearthly and most-inspiring duo ever to set a hip hop piece on stage, as Tabitha and Napoleon direct the best Monsters Show yet..."I'm A Monster."  Yes...Raw and Uncut.

HYPE 2010 AT DEPAUL UNIVERSITY-
HYPE has been the premier dance competition in Chicago since 2005 with their campaign to Save Darfur.  HYPE combines the rich pool of creative, artistic, and organizational talent along with the fresh and urban presence of young adults at DePaul University.

Special Guest Performance by Endiskize as they sang "We Don't Back Down" live after intermission to start off the second half of the show! The Exposure Movement provided the back-up dancers and choreography for this event.



April 16, 2010


WGN-TV NEWS came to interview and shoot the behind-the-scenes action of music video "We Don't Back Down," by Endiskize.  Music video was filmed at Deerfield High School.

Both Emmy award-winning anchor Ana Belaval and producer Terry Barthel were on the premises and announced The Exposure Movement's first television pub, as presenting the choreography, which was set on the featured dancers in the music video.  Ana stood by and learned some of the choreography and performed a little of the piece during one of the live commercial hits on April 27, 2010.  She's a quick learner! Nice job!!

Thank you guys for coming out and showing support!
