Please Read before you search for your school below

 

This page serves as an easy reference tool for  scheduled dance classes through your home dance studio. Here, you will be able to view your class time as well as a clickable link that takes you directly to the class meeting page.  Please continue to follow up with your studio for updates to the schedule, news, information on re-opening, tuition, & more. No payment for class is handled via this page. Each class listed below is part of registration with a number of dance studios.

The ZOOM platform for virtual meetings & classes now requires passwords to access all classes in order to provide additional security and safety of students. The links to each class listed below will take you to the meeting page, however you will likely need a password to join. Check your emails for your password. If you have not received the password, you may reach me directly at JohnBarrella13@gmail.com with class details so that I may provide your password. This password is specific to the HIP HOP PROGRAM at your studio and does not grant access to other classes or other dance studios.

These classes serve as a temporary replacement for standard dance classes. No information is available here regarding recitals or dance competitions.  With the intention of returning to the studio in the near future and completing the school year  as well as preparations for the recital, my focus in these virtual classes will be to continue each program as efficiently as possible. I am happy to share

Each dance studio follows different procedures for their current program. Depending on their preferences for format and safety, your scheduled class may not  include a link just yet. Keep checking back in the event that changes.

Links & passwords are established as permanent and will not change weekly.  If we need to change any information for any reason, an email will be sent out.

Class links will be made available for all participating dance studios by Tuesday, April 7th. When activated, the ticket next to your scheduled class will take you directly to the virtual class!

        We were able to host John recently in our studio for two student workshops divided by ages, an adult class and a teacher training. I had followed him on social media and had always been impressed by his level of knowledge and passion to teach REAL hip hop. We were blown away by his knowledge once we met him in person and his training-in addition to his curriculum-has shaped our hip hop program in our studio! I highly recommend using John as a resource however you can, whether it is his curriculum or a live session. He is truly one of the best out there!

        I had John out to my studio over the summer for teacher training. I am so glad that I had more than just my hip hop teachers in the room as his tips, exercises and approaches can be used in all genres. They are true teaching tools. John gives a true foundation and education on hip hop culture and brings you back to where it comes from and the why. His personality is infectious and his passion for not only his art  but educating others is evident. He has made himself available  to be a mentor to one of my newer staff members and we have purchased his curriculum for our studio. I can't say enough about him except he is the real deal.

     John Comix Barrella has visited our studio twice since 2018 and he has inspired, educated and infused excitement into our hip hop programs.  Not only does he deliver memorable and current class work, he is authentic.  He studies so he can share and inspire with so much knowledge.  Our hip hop instructor uses his teaching material to continue to develop a strong and growing program at our studio.  After year one, our dancers looked forward to learning new styles that were presented with so much detail that they could retain the information and build on John's workshop visit throughout the season.
