Directed by Natalie Vilos and produced by award-winning choreographer Marcelo Pacleb, "LIVE 3" tells the dramatic story of three characters living in the city that are brought together by fate and inextricably intertwined forever. Adrian, a young corporate climber, wants the success and fortune that Damien, a corporate leader, has, and secretly falls in love with the Damienʻs lover, Elle. We also meet Daphne, the child of an interracial marriage between Dimitri and Akemi, who longs for acceptance and love in a society that constantly shuns her because she is "different." A violent war sends Adrian and Damien off into battle while Elle and Daphne are left behind to deal with the drastic consequences of the war.
Hawaii has no shortage of talent, especially within the dance community. Marcelo Pacleb and his team have been instrumental in fostering that talent and considered one of the most successful studios not only in Hawaii, but also on the West coast. Most recently, some of the 24-VII talent that are shining brightly include current America's Best Dance Crews darlings, 8 Flavahs, who have been in LA strutting their stuff for the past eight weeks and now in the finals. Young dancer, Cole Horibe, has flown off to L.A. to try his luck at auditions for So You Think You Can Dance. And of course, there are Mark Kanemura and Kupono Aweau, who have gone on to professional careers (Kanemura is on tour with Lady Gaga, while Aweau is on tour with Madonna, respectively).
The newest 24-VII dancers to spread their choreography wings in LIVE 3 include Kayla Kamisato, Stephenie Kunz, Cheyenne Lawes, Cerise Marchan, Phylicia Murray, Joshua Ofoia, Spencer Weidie, Natalie Vilos, and Will Thomson.
