KOREO, a student hip-hop fusion dance group, performed April 20 and 21 in Warner Main Space. KOREO started off as an effort to bring K-pop music to the annual Oberlin Korean Student Association banquet. The organization has transformed over the years into an integral part of the Oberlin dance community. KOREO now hosts experienced dancers, workshops, and several performances every year. The troupe still performs at K-pop events like K-pop Night at the ’Sco. The event last weekend included guest performances from student a capella group Pitch Please and another hip-hop dance group, Kinetique.
