On July 8, two days before the annual hip hop dance festival “The Big Groove 2011” that was held in Singapore, Rino Nakasone met up with xinmsn to talk about her career as a choreographer.

Rino Nakasone is known for choreographing numerous title tracks for SM Entertainment’s artists, including Girls’ Generation. Some of her works include choreographing for “Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)”, “Oh!”, “Hoot”, and “MR. TAXI”.

In order to gain ideas for a dance, she reveals that she listens to the original music for “about a hundred times” before deciding the choreography. Because of her constant meetings with the artists, she started to share stronger bonds with a few of them. Quoted from Rino, “They are the people I talk about dance the most with; like SHINee’s Taemin, Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon, and f(x)’s Amber.”

When asked about her favorite choreographies, she mentioned SHINee’s “Love Like Oxygen”, TVXQ’s “Maximum”, which she choreographed alongside Shim Jaewon, and lastly, Girls’ Generation’s “Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)”. She was quite surprised when people started to make up names for her choreographies, such as the “shuttle-kicking dance” for the leg-kicking move in “Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)”.
