Neko DC are a casual dance crew that aim to have fun and share their passion for dance. Off the back of their first performance at the BrisAsia Festival this dynamic group answered a few questions about getting involved in dance, hanging out and following their dreams.
What does Neko DC do and what do you love about it?
We are a casual entertainment group that makes various videos on YouTube and occasionally perform live. We offer dance and reaction videos, vlogs and many more fun videos. We aim to spread our passion for dance and music and hopefully get Brisbane more recognition. We mainly showcase K-Pop but we will be working on some J-Pop and hip hop covers! We really wish to cover a lot.
What are you currently working on project-wise?
We just successfully completed our first performance for BrisAsia Festival, Taste of Asia and started making YouTube videos. We are now focusing on more video projects such as dance covers and hopefully a few more performances in the future!
How did Neko DC hear about Visible Ink?
Our members are a part of various dance groups around Brisbane that has always come to Vis Ink for space. Visible Ink provides a great happy and safe environment that we absolutely love. The meeting room is a great place for us to hold meetings and to record our videos and the rehearsal space is a really great help for our dance covers and performance preparations! Apart from that, Vis Ink has a nice kitchen and living area that we can relax in.
Speaking of relaxing, what does Neko DC get up to in your down time?
Hmm~ does karaoke and eating out count? We love to eat. When we have the chance we will eat and go to karaoke. One of our members, E, loves karaoke so we always go! Everyone loves food, so eating food always make us happy.
What would you say led you to where you are today?
Having a great number of people supporting us and being surrounded by great friends really makes us work harder to achieve great goals. We hope one day we can travel together and hold dance workshops, meet and greet our amazing supporters. We have so many big dreams that wish to accomplish. We’ve only been together for about 2 months now and we feel like we’ve achieved so much and we’re very thankful.
Is there any advice Neko DC would give young people wanting to get involved?
For those who want to create videos, dance or have something you wish to start but are afraid, don’t be. Just start it straight away, if you want to do it with a friend, then grab a friend. If you made a video or want to do a dance cover, record it and upload it straight away. Getting your work out is one of the best feelings! Of course you won’t be recognised straight away but you will slowly and it’s great. We honestly felt that our channel wouldn’t have done well if it wasn’t for the support from our friends and family. Having support is really helpful. We know you can do it! Be positive and just start.
How would you suggest young people get involved with Neko DC or any group in Brisbane?
Find a group or start searching for opportunities. If you see an opportunity advertised for performance or something that you know you have skills in, take it! Always try so you won’t end up regretting it. VisInk is really helpful when it comes to opportunities but it’s good to search around as well.
If you’ve read this, we hope we’ve inspired you start what you love to do or at least have given a good read. We’re very thankful for having VisInk and we hope you can continue to support them and us! If you would like to get to know us a bit more, then please visit our social media sites below.
