HOKUTO KONISHI

Emmy-Award winning movement designer HOK certainly had a very interesting and a unique path. With cultural roots based in 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. The discovery of the dancer better known as "HOK" became a national broadcast upon his audition for the television competition, "So You Think You Can Dance."

Although his appearances spanned multiple seasons, his impression was immortalized as a Season 3 cast member, in which he performed the iconic Emmy awarded dance entitled "The Flower and the Hummingbird" choreographed by the famed Wade Robson.

His passion has lead him to work with world renown artists such as USHER, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, and Snoop Dogg. After choreographing LMFAO's worldwide hit phenomena "Party Rock Anthem", he moved up onto directing their world tour & traveled the world performing and teaching all around the globe. From choreographing for NIKE to Directing commercials for JAL, he has broadened his horizon of creativity far beyond just dance & is always expanding his art further.

He continued to amaze the nation by taking home the championship title for "America's Best Dance Crew" with his dance company QUEST CREW not only once, but twice when coming back to compete for the all star championship season. He continued his success by winning an EMMY for outstanding choreography in 2016.
