A famous choreographer has been appearing across multiple K-Pop stars’ social media platforms. His name is Kiel Tutin, and if you don’t know who he is, you’ll know his impressive list of choreography credits.
One of the many elements that make K-Pop so appealing is the choreography. From point moves that can easily be replicated at a club to moving multiple members through different seamless transitions to the acrobatics that are best left to the professionals. There is nothing like it when it all comes together with the outfits, stages, lights, and of course, the talent.
One key choreographer on the scene is Kiel, who was born on October 21, 1995, in England. After immigrating to New Zealand, Kiel began co-choreographing and teaching dance crews from The Palace Dance Studio. While at The Palace Dance Studio, he was part of ReQuest, a dance crew under the Royal Family dance umbrella.
The Palace Dance Studio owner and then leader of ReQuest is Parris Goebel (also known as Parri$), an award-winning choreographer, dancer, singer, director, and actress of Samoan descent. The powerhouse talent has choreographed for Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, 2NE1, BIGBANG, iKON, and 4Minute.
Kiel has worked with K-Pop artists such as Sunmi, Somi, BLACKPINK, 4MINUTE, TWICE, MONSTA X, NiziU, HyunA, STAYC, aespa, Girls On Top, and ITZY.
He has choreographed many iconic K-Pop dances, to name a few he has worked on BLACKPINK’s “DDU DU DDU DU,” Jennie’s “SOLO,” TWICE’s “Fancy,” and “More & More,” and aespa’s “Savage.”
Kiel recently visited South Korea, where he met up with TWICE’s Tzuyu, Momo, and Chaeyoung for a TWICE dance medley, and he was also photographed with TWICE’s Dahyun and separately with Somi.
His name is now all over the top 4th generation groups as he continues to be someone you should keep your eye on!
