karma krew

established 2018

Karma Krew is a Houston based K-pop Dance Cover group, founded in 2018. Beginning with just 6 members, Karma Krew has since expanded to over 20 active members, all united by a love of K-Pop and dancing. From the beginning, Karma Krew strived to be inclusive and diverse - open to members of any dance background. Recently, they have shared this message to the Houston K-pop community through affordable K-pop dance classes.Over the past four years, Karma Krew has hosted dozens of free, accessible K-pop events by teaming up with local small businesses. In addition to games, raffles, and random dance challenges, Karma Krew performs a variety of K-pop dances at their own events. The group also performs at other Houston events, such as Snap2Official’s K-pop Skate Nights, and more notably, the Houston Rodeo 2022.

More recently, the group has begun competing in global dance competitions, making it as far as the finals for the Houston Chapter of the Korean World Festival. They have even had the opportunity of opening for K-Pop solo artist AleXa, traveling to Dallas to perform prior to her exclusive Q&A session. In the future, Karma Krew hopes to continue hosting free events to the general public and expand their performances to even bigger and brighter stages.

We will require a one (1) minute long, one-take video of the song you/your group plan on performing at the event in the planned outfits (to avoid wardrobe malfunctions).spacer
Performances will be outdoors on concrete, so please plan outfits and choreography accordingly. Performances may be up to 4 minutes in length (if a remix/medley) or 1 full song.

our COVID-19 procedures

spacer
We, Karma Krew, do not wish to downplay the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Houston, there are still hundreds of new cases each day, and new strains of COVID-19, which the vaccine may or may not protect us against, are continually being discovered. Hospitals are severely overwhelmed which impacts all of us. We highly encourage everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to stay vigilant in preventing the spread of COVID-19 by staying masked at all times, especially indoors.
spacer
Given the global state of the pandemic, we will try our best to hold online random dance challenges. Please note that we are all full time students and thus find it hard to find time to make and host these events during the school year.
spacer
Based on current COVID-19 cases and Harris County vaccination percentages, we recommend that all attendees of our events wear masks and take the appropriate safety precautions required to protect their own health and the health of others.

We, Karma Krew, do not wish to downplay the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Houston, there are still hundreds of new cases each day, and new strains of COVID-19, which the vaccine may or may not protect us against, are continually being discovered. We highly encourage everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to stay vigilant in preventing the spread of COVID-19 by staying masked at all times, especially indoors. One of our members contracted COVID-19 in May of 2020 (and has been healthy and testing negative for several months), and another member's parent works in the COVID-19 sector of a hospital, so we know first hand the impacts of this virus.
spacer
For those who wish to remain remote, we will continue to hold online random dance challenges to the best of our ability.
spacer
Based on current CDC guidelines and Harris County vaccination percentages, we have decided to begin hosting in person events again with the following restrictions which will be heavily monitored and enforced:

  • all persons must wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status*

  • group performers who are not fully vaccinated and all audience members must be masked, even outdoors

  • all dancing will take place outdoors, and when distancing is not possible, all dancers will be required to wear masks

  • participants in random dances will be spread at least 3 feet apart

spacer
Vaccines are available to all persons age 12 and older. At our events:

  • dance groups/soloists who are fully vaccinated will have precedence over other groups/soloists to perform

  • fully vaccinated persons' song requests will be weighted thrice that of partially vaccinated or unvaccinated persons**

spacer
*unless eating or drinking, which is heavily encouraged to take place outdoors
