4 Choreography Tips from Jonathan Sakas (VIDEO)

He's basketball player-size tall. He's lanky. And he's bearded. He may not look like a twinkle toes, but drop him in a dance battle, and Jonathan Sakas can throw the f- down. The local electro pop musician might not have a traditional dancer's body, but in his music video for "Saturday," he proves he can shake it. In the clip, Sakas, backed by four hottie female backup dancers, throws down moves hotter than *NSYNC. It's way more choreography than usually hits the local music circuit, and it helps the song is super-catchy. Check out the video here, and scroll to 0:53 to see Sakas in action.

But don't think Sakas' fancy feet are all natural talent. There's a lot that goes into honing the craft that is the magic of his moves. He broke down his training regimen in Vine video format after the jump, and stay tuned for a live concert announcement from Sakas.
