Class Description

The Jazz Funk dance style was born in LA, and we are bringing it to Fredericksburg with Bring Da Jazz, Bring Da Funk! Jazz Funk is a fun dance style that is a combination of a few different dance styles: Jazz, Hip Hop, and Waacking. This dance class will help to bring out the inner dance diva in all of us. Each week we will study one of the different styles that Jazz Funk incorporates, while learning to put it all together in a combination for the showcase.

*The showcase date has not yet been confirmed for this class, but will possibly be held on Wednesday, May 22nd, or Thursday, May 23rd, location TBD.*

 

Teacher:


Ellen Konicki

I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, where I heard the words, "You could dance before you could walk," many times as a child. Growing up, I spent most of my time dancing, my heart out at South Buffalo Dance Academy, my second home. Where, later on, I fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a dance teacher. I attended the State University of New York at Fredonia; where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Education and Special Education. Throughout my time at Fredonia, I enjoyed being an active member of the student run dance company on campus, Orchesis. During my time with Orchesis, I had the opportunity to perform in and choreograph many dances. After I graduated college, I moved to Stafford, VA to become an Elementary Special Education teacher. I enjoy singing and dancing my way through the halls on the way to the copy machine at work, or with my students in the classroom. Over the past three years, I have had the honor of teaching lessons and choreographing pieces for the competition dance team at Gift of Dance Academy. I recently made my CYT debut, as the choreographer for Junie B Jones: the musical. I had a blast and can’t wait to see what CYT has in store for me!
