Today Lila led us in a really unique Jazz Funk workshop. We started off by doing a round of introductions where we shared what animal we would want to be and why. Then, Lila explained what Jazz funk really is for everyone. We learned about the individuality of this style of dance and where we have seen this style before....

"It's been so wonderful to watch the kids participate-i've loved seeing them step out of their comfort zones as they explore new forms of artistic expression, and it's incredible to watch them connect with each other and make new friends through performance as well" - Delilah (Workshop Leader and Volunteer), California
"10/10 experience! I will definitely come back!"" -Azania, Minnesota
"The games are really fun and we can interact with different people and get to know them." -Mackenzie, Oklahoma
"I like these classes because it's fun and I get time to dance and have fun. I love the teacher, they are very nice and help me get better." -Zayuri, California
I get so much joy from teaching these intelligent and hardworking dancers. They never fail to impress me whether it's through how fast they pick up choreography or their ability to establish their own dance styles at such a young age. The learning environment with ITP is just so special as there are always volunteers to make the students feel comfortable as they express themselves with various styles of dance and arts. Each class is so unique and memorable and I can't wait to meet new dancers and have even more fun in upcoming classes!! -Emily (President), California
