“I’m not sure how the founders of our group stumbled upon [Visible Ink] but I’m glad they did. The staff are friendly and encouraging and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the space. We’re very grateful to the Vis Ink team!”
BKPFM are currently working on a range of dance covers, and whatever else comes their way. The group has frequented the Visible Ink space for years, building their ranks not only as a way to exercise and fun but to be social, meeting other people that have similar interests. It’s also a way for them to use the music they listen to in a constructive and creative way.
“I guess, because there aren’t many people that actively dance to K-Pop or even like it, it’s a way for us to reach out and say: Hey! We are fans and this is what we do!”
BKPFM want to create a space for those that aren’t as confident about putting their covers (dancing or singing) out there and meet other people that have the same interest, all the while putting Brisbane on the map in the K-Pop scene.
This diverse but tight knit group spend time together outside of BKPFM, socialising and showcasing their other talents and skills as aspiring writers, artists, musicians, biologists, dancers, zoologists, conservationists and the list goes on. If you’re interested in joining them, it’s as simple watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXs3oOiogY8.
“Just do it! Don’t be scared to try something new. If you want to put your covers out there, practice hard and learn from every video or event you do. It’s always hard at first even when you’re in a group but it’s all worth it in the long run!”
Natasha also says if you’re looking to get involved in Brisbane’s dance communities, it’s important to be humble “the people you meet can give you sound advice but only if you let them. Don’t view people as your competition but as your allies, you might end up with an amazing collaboration”.
BKPFM can be contacted via Facebook and are a welcoming group, so feel free to join in on the fun.
