So Bianna, we heard that you like to dance
Before I started being a Viva talent, I was a dancer in Banana Sundae. Nagge-guest din ako minsan sa ibang shows to dance with groups. I had no professional training going in, but I have been dancing ever since bata pa lang kami ng mga siblings ko. We all used to dance for my papa's boss at parties. Nadala ko na lang siguro paglaki.
So do you want to continue dancing on television as your career or are you more into acting now?
I'm looking forward to acting, but I really love dancing and if I can do both naman, why not? I'm really hoping this year na magkaroon ako ng break.
Do you have any favorite dancers or idols you want to collaborate on a dance video with?
I would really like to have the chance to dance with Yassi Pressman. Ang galing niya at sobra niyang ganda.
So you also dance hip hop?
Yup, genre ko yung hip hop. Though, I think more on "sexy hip hop" siya. Kasi sabi nila kahit boyish daw yung sayaw, lumalabas pa rin yung sexy sa galaw ko. For me kasi, yung sexy na sayaw is something you feel.
Do you post your dance videos online?
I want to actually. Yun yung pinu-push sa akin ni Boss Vic. He wants me to post dance videos, baka sakaling mag-viral daw. I haven't started talaga doing it consistently pero I have some videos na pang personal lang.
Why don't you make a YouTube account and upload your videos there?
I have this personality na medyo shy pa ako pagdating sa pag-upload ng videos and photos, which I understand is not okay for my showbiz career di ba? Pero minsan kasi nahihiya ako kasi I'm not that type of person na iniisip na "ay sure akong magugustuhan 'to ng mga tao." Kailangan talagang may mag-push sa akin minsan.
Why do you think you're shy to show your dance videos to other people?
I don't know. Maybe I'm just not sure kung ano magiging reaction nung mga nakakapanood.
Why? Have you heard some negative feedback towards your videos?
I posted this one video of me dancing and it went viral. I was with my friend and we were headed to China Town and the driver and my friend were pushing me to dance while we were in traffic kasi we were so bored. I didn't expect the video to go viral kasi ang daming social media pages na nag-reupload nung video. There were hundreds of thousands of views tapos ang daming comments na minumura ako.
Oh, why were they so hostile towards you?
Sabi nila may gumawa na raw niyan tapos hindi ako original tapos wala naman daw talagang traffic. Medyo nakatabingi din kasi yung video kaya hindi halata yung traffic kasi syempre ako naman dapat yung focus hindi yung mga kotse di ba? Ha ha!
Were you hurt by these comments?
Hindi naman ako nainis, actually it was very funny kasi dun ko lang nalamang may mga tao palang ganun.
So, it was your friend who uploaded the video?
Oo, kasi yung mga friends ko yung laging nagsasabing mag-post daw ako online pero ako lang yung laging nag-aalangan. Meron akong YouTube channel pero wala pa siyang videos kasi I'm still thinking what I should post as my first video there.
