What we're about

Dance/exercise class for those wanting to learn dances from the 60s & 70s to Soul, R&B, and Funk music. This class is especially designed for older people, needing exercise, and something fun to do on a Friday nite. Young people invited also. Young folks really enjoy learning the authentic dance culture, and the original music. This class is created, trademarked, and taught by Actress, Ella Joyce, (from the TV Show "Roc", and the movie "Set It Off"), who is originally from the soul city of Detroit, and the South side of Chicago.

Do the Boogaloo, the Camel Walk, Monkey, Mash Potatoes, the Jerk, the Bop, the Slop, the Twist, and more. This class dances in socks: SockHop style, just like the old days. Class meets every Friday at 8PM (1 hour) in North Hollywood. It's strictly an easy follow-along class, providing fun memories, recreation, and soul. Beginners welcome. Skills not necessary. Partners not needed, but feel free to bring friends or guests from out-of-town. Tourists especially seem to love the class because of its uniqueness.

It's a fun hour of recreational routines to some of the greatest American music of our times. Be prepared to sweat. Bring your own bottled water & towel. Must sign a waiver to dance. Must be able to dance in socks. See website for more info: www.Funkacize.com.
