ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Funk Revolution is a kids & teens dance company and training program that runs like a studio or school, every September through May. Each level, the OGz (Beginner-Intermediate) and the VETz (Intermediate-Advance) meets once a week on Friday for two 1hr classes & every other Sunday for 90min rehearsals over the course of 2 semesters. The kids will take classes in a variety of styles, shoot video content, learn routines to perform in at least 2 conventions/competitions, get the chance to learn choreo from master guest teachers and participate in our Spring Concert at the end of the program.

 

Our educational focus is in Hip Hop foundational styles, Funk styles, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Vogue & overall commercial dance fundamentals. We preach & practice TECHNIQUE & FOUNDATION over "swag" & trends.

The company was founded & is directed by Eboné VanityZo Johnson, a veteran dancer/actress, choreographer & educator.
