Founded in 2015, K-Edge is a K-pop interest dance group at UVA.
We perform on-grounds and also create projects for our YouTube channel!
During the Fall 2015 semester, founder Kianna Mckenzie (CLAS ‘18) started a Korean-pop interest dance group at the University of Virginia (UVA) with no idea of where it’d go—just “a whole lot of hope.”
With a handful of members, they started signing out practice rooms, learning dances, and practicing. But before long, this group found a home and community in a shared love and appreciation for Korean music and culture—and they became a family.
In just one semester, we became an official organization at UVA, added on a few new members, and named ourselves “K-Edge Dance Crew”—but didn’t stop there. In our first official year, we’d filmed a fully produced concept video featuring original choreography, organized a collaborative workshop with dance organizations from George Mason University, and held our first formal auditions. In our second, we doubled our member count, held our own showcase, and performed at Virginia Tech.
As of Spring 2018, just under three years since its founding, K-Edge boasts 20+ active members, a presence on social media, and a reputation for charismatic performances. With a commitment to quality, we aim to spread an appreciation for Korean music and culture through our performances On and Off Grounds.
But to us, this is still just the tip of the iceberg…so stay tuned. #kedgesharp
