Founded by Patrick Santos and Francesca Balagtas in July 2017, K-Pop-Up is a San Francisco-based dance class and cover group that strives to bring diverse groups together through the magic of our shared interest in Korean Pop music. Our classes are inclusive for all ages, all dance levels, and all backgrounds.



Through our bi-weekly dance classes, we work to promote inclusivity and support everyone, wherever they may be in their dance journey. As a cover group, we are a team of passionate individuals who carry on the mission of the class by creating positive and uplifting dance content for our YouTube channel and performing at both cultural and entertainment-focused live events.


We are a volunteer-run organization that has now expanded to dozens of members across the San Francisco Bay Area, and we maintain an active and thriving online community to help organize and share our love of K-Pop dance.
