We are excited to announce we are now running classes in Portland! Book us at your school!
Funky Divas & Dudes have created a rockin’ world where children can let their personalities shine! Our After-School Enrichment Dance Program is offered to Preschools and Elementary Schools throughout Los Angeles. We offer a variety of dance classes including Hip-Hop/Jazz, Music Video, So You Think You Can Dance, Cheerleading and Fairytale Hour. We've developed a curriculum that is designed for children to have fun, learn the basic techniques of dance, explore expression through movement of the body, gain self-confidence, and over-come their fears of stage fright. We teach dance routines to age-appropriate music and put on a performance in costumes (that we provide) on the last day for family and friends to come enjoy. We believe that our program truly enhances the lives of young children, and that we are positive role models for them. We feel that we could be a great benefit to your program.

AFTER-SCHOOL ENRICHMENT DETAILS:
Our classes are one hour, once a week. Preschool classes are typically 45 minutes. Sessions are pre-set dates between 8-14 weeks, depending on your schools calendar. We typically split the kids into separate age groups of your choice (ex: PreK-1st & 2nd- 5th) or we can do one combined class with all grades (ex: Kinder-3rd). Our class is most popular with Preschool- 3rd Grade. We can offer classes back-to-back for the different age groups if your schools schedule allows for that.
We have a highly experienced and reliable staff of instructors that have been trained to teach our specific curriculum. All instructors are FBI/DOJ live scanned and have TB clearance/waiver. We have liability insurance, and would add your school as an additional insured.
We can handle all registration forms and payments (if the school doesn't handle this). We are flexible in pay structure and price.
