Funky Divas and Dudes is not just a party program. It is so much more to the youth of our community than a simple after school program. We encourage kids to get moving and aid in their physical and social enrichment. Working with the children of Redondo has shown us just how important the development of self esteem and social skills truly are.
Funky Divas and Dudes After School Enrichment Dance Class
We have an extremely popular After School Enrichment Hip-Hop class at Washington School in Rodondo Beach, California. We started the program at Washington School in 2013 with only 6 (incredibly amazing) kiddos. Fast forward to 2017, and we are excited to report that we now have 2 sections, divided by age (Kindergarten- 1st grade and 2nd-5th grade) with just under 60 participants. Amazing, right?! Washington School parents are thrilled with Funky Divas & Dudes, and the PTA is a huge supporter of our dance class (so much so that the PTA president’s daughter is one of our participants.) The pride and trust the parents and community place in us truly touches our hearts and affirms our goals and desires to reach out to as many littles as possible through the power of dance.
The program is 11 weeks of fitness and fun. During our fall session, each group will learn 3 age appropriate dance routines with their groups and one grand combined finale where all 59 students will be involved. Throughout this combined dance, both age groups will have feature bits and solos so our little stars can shine. Past routines have been performed to Bruno Mars’, “24K”, Pharrell’s, “Happy”, Fitz and the Tantrum’s, “HandClap “and Disney’s Moana, “How Far I’ll Go” and “You’re Welcome”, to name a few.
They Take the Stage and Steal the Show
Funky Divas and Dudes takes the kids and their performance to the next level by providing the mini rockstars with personalized costumes for their grand performance. I can’t begin to express the joy I feel as these kids take the stage and steal the show. Dance is a great confidence builder, not to mention a super fun way to exercise. Funky Divas & Dudes are thrilled to provide a fun way for kids to stay active and promote a positive self image.
By learning dance routines in completion, and then performing it for an audience, children acquire the self confidence needed to help them grow. Funky Divas & Dude’s dance classes help children increase their self-esteem, gain better interactive social skills, improve their concentration, coordination, flexibility, strength, rhythmic ability and balance all the while having a fun, positive experience! The Funky Divas & Dudes team are a group of role models who are not only energetic and fun, but also possess a high self esteem, producing confidence through their contagious smiles!
