Yanis Marshall took YouTube by storm in 2013 when he posted his Paris High Heel Dance Video featuring him and his crew ferociously dancing to Spice Girl’s iconic song “Wannabe.”
It was such a huge hit that it became viral in a matter of days. To date, the same video has more than 9 million views all over the world (and still counting!). It also spawned many other videos that not only highlight his rare gift in performing but established his unique signature in his kind of art: his heels!
Do you want to know how Yanis Marshall did it? Filipinos now have the chance to see him in action when he comes to Manila for first time this June.
Moovz, the global social network for LGBT, in cooperation with the Philippines’ premier celebrity dance group G-Force, is bringing French choreographer and international dance icon Yanis Marshall to do a show and a series of dance workshops in the Philippines.
“We couldn’t be happier!” exclaims G-Force Dance Company Artistic Director Georcelle Dapat-Sywhom everybody simply calls Teacher Georcelle. She proudly adds, “It is an honor to be part of this collaboration and we are very proud to be working with the LGBT community and championing their cause.”
G-Force Managing Director Angel Syalso states, “We are very much excited about his coming to Manila and we are looking forward to doing the show and the lessons Yanis will be able to share with so many dance enthusiasts in the country.”
“This collaboration is a result of our vision to reach out to the international LGBT leaders and connect them with the local members of the community for the purpose of uniting the gay communities from all over the world around common LGBT culture," expresses Moovz Regional Manager for Asia & the Pacific Boyet Dalisay.
