We are very happy to have Shaun headlining the festival this year, as not only he has tremendous success in U.S., he is equally if not more popular in Asia with his work with the K-pop superbands and Taiwanese artistes – which is the exact idea behind United We Boogie Singapore (UWBS) is all about “Exchange and Experience” – through our collaboration with Boogiezone, we hope to bridge and build the bond of the global dance community, to make new friends and help each other and the community grow.”

More About Shaun Evaristo:

Shaun Evaristo, award winning celebrity choreographer and dancer extraordinaire, is best known for this works with Korea’s super band Big Bang. His credits include choreography for other Asia’s top artistes, Tae Yang, G-Dragon, 2NE1, Se7en, Show Luo, Hollywood stars Omarion, Vanessa Hudgens, Travis Garland and NLT.

This Filipino American from San Francisco, started young. Mimicking Michael Jackson music videos from the age of five; forming dance group Gen2 in his garage with his cousins at 10; Shaun, by 18, just knew that dancing was what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. Moving to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams, he crafted his own style of slick moves to call his own, forging an early career in dance and choreography that quickly caught the attention of pop stars in U.S. and abroad.

While it is difficult to properly capture into words Evaristo’s style of dance – more complex than traditional hip-hop, there is a precise smoothness and intensity to his moves that elude definition, it is no doubt that his style has won over millions of fans across U.S. and Asia – evident from the overflowing praises posted on his Facebook, MySpace and YouTube accounts. Not surprisingly, the words “inspiration” and “amazing” pop up in almost every other comment.

Other than teaching workshops and choreographing routines for the stars, Evaristo is also the president and founder of Movement Lifestyle, a full-service choreography management company that represents artists like him.
