Phunk Phenomenon WestCoast: Over the years Phunk Phenomenon has cultivated many worldwide friendships & relationships. One such relationship began in 2006 between Phunk founder Reia Briggs Connor and Tara (Taz) Treacy (Streets Ahead) from Ireland when noted similarities between their styles of teaching, their ethos and their dancers were made although their dance studios existed 3000 miles apart in separate countries. Over the next 8years, The Ireland/Boston connection continued to build. Various members from Phunk Phenomenon visited Ireland to judge the Hip Hop International Irish National Championships and to teach workshops & Taz came to Boston to judge at Prelude New England in April 2014. When Taz moved to California, it was only a matter of time until the next step became clear...... PHUNK PHENOMENON WESTCOAST has arrived! The History Of Phunk Phenomenon: In 1995, Reia Briggs-Connor (former New England Patriot Cheerleader) created R&B Entertainment, a full dance theater company. After three successful seasons as a Patriot Cheerleader, Mrs. Briggs-Connor returned to her professional dance and entertainment industry roots. Mrs. Briggs-Connor, a seasoned artist, has over 15 years of diverse entertainment and performance experience which includes the following: a recording contract with Cornell Brown and Maurice Starr of New Kids on the Block and performances with popular artists Bel Biv Devoe, Four Fun and Savion Glover. With the assistance of Corey Israel, (long time Alvin Ailey student) Ms. Briggs developed Phunk Phenomenon as a satellite of R&B Entertainment. Phunk Phenomenon is Boston's only full service dance and promotional arm. Composed of New England's (the Tri-State area in particular) finest male and female dance and promotional talent, the Phunk Phenomenon combines these unique multi-ethnic, multicultural urban artists to create a intriguing blend of modern and traditional dance styles. The end result is a provocative dance performance with a unique synthesis of style and appearance. And, Phunk Phenomenon's signature is its cross-cultural fusion of traditional, contemporary "street" dance formats with highlights of modern dance, ballet, tap and various music forms (jazz, house, hip hop, tribal, and Latin). Under girding the creative and artistic aspects of the performance is a bedrock of thought-provoking positive messages. As a multi-cultural organization that honors our diversity and celebrates our individual ethnic heritages, Phunk Phenomenon endeavors to promote community, ethnic and personal empowerment. Through its work, Phunk Phenomenon encourages individuals and communities to raise their unique 'voices and views' to create constructive changes personally, locally and globally. This type of social entrepreneurship is reflected in Phunk Phenomenon's mission, values and leadership. JARED'S FIGHT - 'HIP HOP FOR HOPE' Meet Jared Connor. He is the six year old son of Rick and Reia Connor owners of Phunk Phenomenon. Jared has been diagnosed with a rare disease know as Sanfilippo Syndrome. Children with Sanfilippo are missing an essential enzyme that breaks down a complex body sugar called heparin sulfate. These sugars slowly build up in the brain, stopping normal development and causing hyperactivity, sleep disorders, loss of speech, dementia and typically death before adulthood. There is no cure …. yet. Our mission and goals as Phunk Phenomenon member, dancers, and teachers is to raise as much awareness as we can about the rare disease. HIP HOP FOR HOPE has been a brand that we represent while teaching or performing using our dancing as a platform to shine as much light as we possibly can on this terrible disease. If you would like to help, or would like to inquire more information on Sanfilippo Syndrome and Jared please visit http://www.jaredsfight.org/

Hey OC friends, some of you will know that my attempts to open a dance studio in Aliso have proved challenging to say the least due to issues beyond my control. In the meantime, until I figure out a path forward, I would love to build a student base. I am considering starting a dance class or 2 in Aliso either at the studios upstairs from the gym or in a close location. I would love your feedback on this. Drop me a message with interest, questions or suggestions. Thank you kindly 😘

Aliso Viejo Update: A year on from when we were supposed to commence classes at 4 Journey, we are disappointed to announce that the City of Aliso Viejo cannot grant us a permit at that location. We are now looking at a few different choices for locations and hope to have an update really soon. In the meantime, please add your email to the mailing list so that you get the information as soon as it's available. Those on our mailing list will receive FREE REGISTRATION when the studio opens.

A big thank you to Ross Chun Aliso Viejo City Council who leads a regular 'coffee with your councilman' session in Aliso Viejo. I met with him today to discuss the delays we are facing in launching our new Phunk Phenomenon dance complex & the problems with securing the necessary permit. It was a very promising meeting & a great opportunity to learn more about our city and meet some great people in the process. I look forward to having more news for you all really soon and hopefully announcing a much anticipated start date!

Thanks to all who participated in the Coffee With Your Councilman this morning at Bagels and Brew. Questions arose about the upcoming Soka Holiday event, the District Attorney's investigation into the recent campaign violations, and a productive discussion from a new Aliso Viejo business who is working through the city process for establishing her dance studio near the Aliso Viejo Library. Good luck to our new business and neighbor!

Lil Hustlers Got to Dance

What's the Irish connection in Phunk Phenomenon West Coast?? Manager of the West Coast studio will be Taz (Tara) Treacy, former owner of Streets Ahead Dance Studios in Dublin, Ireland. Take a look at this video for an idea of what to expect at Phunk in Aliso Viejo. This is Lil Hustlers Crew from Ireland. Taz formed Lil Hustlers in 2007. They were (and still are) a hugely successful dance crew in Ireland, winning back to back national titles, and even making the podium at the World Championships in Las Vegas in 2010 (Hip Hop International), making many tv appearances including the semi finals of the UKs 'Got to Dance' which you can see here.
Remember that online registration is open for all phunk classes in Aliso Viejo at http://PhunkPhenomenon.Studioware-Online.com/
