Funk in Focus Workshops
This video is a sample of the Funk in Focus Workshops with Urban Artistry's Artistic Directors Rashaad Pearson and Ryan Webb. Their partner work has traveling the globe spreading the knowledge, culture and education of the urban dance styles of popping, strutting, boogaloo and the robot among other funk, soul dance and hip hop dance styles that these amazing artists have the ability to teach. Their choreography, performances and workshops never fail to impress and their ability to bring this knowledge in an age appropriate manner to students of all ages sets them apart from their competition every time.
Their workshops and performances have been featured at Jam On IT in Smolyn, Bulgaria, IllReality in Philadelphia, PA, The World Dance Coliseum in Japan, various events throughout Korea, Canada and the West Coast of the United States.
Performances entitled "Funk In Focus" have also appeared at the above listed venues and at the 2010 VelocityDC Festival (see article here http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/08/AR2010100806271.html), The Kennedy Center Open House Arts Festival for 2009/2010, The Smithsonian Musuem of African Art, various school shows with Class Acts Arts and many other locations throughout Washington DC where they are currently based.
