HOK KONISHI

(featured image by Ryan Feng)


With cultural roots based in Yokohama, Japan, and his early youth refined in Oxford, England, Hokuto Konishi‘s diverse upbringing gave way to a creative formula in movement. From the age of 15, dance evolved from a primary activity to a pursuit of passion when college brought him across the world to the United States in 2004. Hok Konishi is now an Emmy Award winning multi-talented artist and best known for his eccentric style as a dancer and choreographer. He became a world sensation after his appearance on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” Although his appearances spanned multiple seasons, his impression was immortalized on season 3 when he performed the iconic Emmy awarded dance choreographed by the famed Wade Robson entitled, “The Flower and the Hummingbird” with QUEST CREW (which he co-founded alongside of his teammate Ryanimay Conferido). Hok, along with his fellow teammates from QUEST CREW, also won the all star season of MTV’s “Americas Best Dance Crew.” Their performances during the season lead Hok to be awarded an Emmy for outstanding choreography. 


As a natural born creator and collaborator, Hok is inspired by all that is beautiful. He believes “beauty comes in form, flow, color, light and idea,” and does not shy away from finding inspiration in things others might consider weird. Along with his love of dancechoreographyfood and art, his latest passion is directing. He recently had the opportunity to direct a commercial for Japan Airlines entitled “Everything Reverses.” 


No stranger to live performances, Hok has had the honor of choreographing the opening act of Madonna’s “MDNA” world tour,” as well as directing and choreographing LMFAO’s entire  “Sorry for Party Rocking” world tour. His music video collaborations include Chris Brown’s “Fine China,” LMFAO “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy & I Know It,” Lil Jon’s “Literally I Can’t,” Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock,”  R.Kelly’s “Bump N Grind” and Far East Movement, Justin Bieber and Redfoo’s “Live My Life.”


When it comes to television, Hok has an impressive resume that includes performances on “Dancing With The Stars,” “Little Big Shots,” “Good Morning America,” “Harry,” “The Ellen Show” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” just to name a few. His choreography and dance skills have also been featured in commercials for Coca-Cola’s ‘Fanta,’ Converse and Mountain Dew.


As of late, Hok performed with Nicki Minaj at the Billboard Music Awards and Demi Lovato at this year’s Grammy’s tribute to the Bee Gees. Currently, he’s collaborating with Nike HQ and continues to travel the world creating, choreographing, inspiring and teaching dance.
