Day 101/366 – It’s gotta be the red shoes…on the dance floor!

Name: Lorena

Hometown: Torreon, Mexico / Currently residing in: Portland, OR

We crossed paths at Element Dance Studio in Hillsboro for Don Flores’ hip hop class on Monday’s at 730pm. It was an awesome class, by the way. I highly recommend dropping in if you’re looking for a quality hip hop class!

Lorena has trained in hip hop, jazz, latin funk, house, lyrical and dance technique. She teaches at Groove Nation in Vancouver, WA and MVP Dance Elite in Beaverton, OR.

Kicks on Lorena’s feet: Air Jordan 1 Phat in Varsity Red/Cool Grey-White

While snacking on some Gushers after class, Lorena mentioned that she received these sneakers as a Christmas gift from a student at MVP. She loves that they are red and that they are comfortable to dance in. She prefers dancing in high’s rather than low’s; they just fit looks-wise and are much more supportive.

If Lorena could be a wingman to any choreographer, it would be: Jaja Vankova (from I.aM.mE. crew, ABDC 6 champions). She combines a variety of styles into her movement such as popping, waving and tutting. Check her out in the video below…red shoes and all…
