Tales of the Strawhat Dancer | Kevin Paradox Oelen | Video



Once upon a time in Japan, a dancer was born. Here to share his silent tales of the beauty of life through the art of movement. A freestyle dance video created at the beautifull gate of Miyajima in Hiroshima. It is said that God walks throught the middle of this gate, you can't help but feel a sense of peace and energy. While i was shoothing this freestyle dance video I was really happy to dance and expres a different side of my dance. I usually go all out and bring an energetic and characterfull dance. But sometimes it is nice to actually let the dance, music and location speak for themselves.
