Choreography with Pauline CasiñoBio: Pauline Casiño found her love for the arts of dance and performance at the early age of 8. Moving to NYC at the age of 12 allowed her to begin dabbling into various disciplines of dance and train with Hip Hop Theory under the mentorship of Moe Dean. She slowly began integrating herself into the NY community circuit and later found herself transitioning into the professional industry.
Pauline is currently signed with Clear Talent Group and has worked with brands such as Adidas, Nike, Adorama and Glow Recipe, and appeared in the Apple TV+ series "Little Voice". She was also a part of Candace Brown's Soul Spot production, BTS' Love Yourself NY/NJ concert, and is a Monsters Cast Nominee for the 2022 show.
Choreography with Esosa OviasuBio: As a choreographer, teacher, and dancer, Esosa Oviasu was largely self-taught in Popping and Breaking by 2007. It wasn't until the following year, that he moved back to New York City and began to formally train in these styles, under legends such as Jazzy J and Boogaloo Kin.
