During a Mini BREAKS class, students and their adults follow along as teacher Anna Banana Freeze demonstrates a variety of breakin’ (break dance) moves and concepts. Participants are invited to share their own dance moves and express themselves during cyphers, dance games and practice session time. It’s totally okay with us if students (and adults) choose to sit back and observe, rather than actively participate. We know that each individual (young or older) learns and processes information differently – please encourage, rather than force your child to boogie. At the very end of class, Anna Banana Freeze chats with each child and gives them a Massive Monkees sticker!
Classes will be held at the Massive Monkees Dance Studio: The Beacon (664 South King Street) in Seattle, WA’s International District.

CLASS TIPS FOR ADULTS
Hello, adults! We ask you to remain with your child during class – to offer encouragement, support and supervision! Please keep in mind that our studio can get very warm during spring/summer and cold during fall/winter, so we recommend you and your child dress accordingly. Also, bring a water bottle with you to stay hydrated. Regardless of the climate, we end up getting a little sweaty!
One last thing – we’d like to repeat that there’s no pressure for you or your child to dance. Sometimes it might be intimidating to put your heart out on the dance floor in front of others, sometimes we might not be playing the song that gets you in the mood, or maybe inspiration is just not striking you at the moment. No worries! We get those days, too, and not dancing during the first (or second or third) class doesn’t mean you are not a great dancer!
We hope to see you and your tiny dancer at our next class! 😉
