BACK TO TOP

"I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the unbelievably great experience I've had. When I walked into my first class last year, I had not one minute of dance training, almost no knowledge of hip-hop, and a real apprehension for what I had signed up for. From the beginning you set the tone and made it clear that this class was not a museum for people who were already cool, but a way to learn, a lab to experiment, a place where we can accept and celebrate each other's freakitude, laugh about screwing up, and keep trying 'til we get it right. Outside of class, SarahAngel has been a fantastic and very patient teacher in our private lessons. She clearly loves what she's doing and does such a great job finding ways to translate clearly between dance vocabulary and something I could easily understand. It's not an exaggeration -- my experience with Funkmode has been a huge part of my life, and I will carry with me the newfound joy of moving to a beat, an ever-growing love of hip-hop, and the sure knowledge that there are great people spreading the message of ALL LOVE in a divisive world." - Thomas A.

BACK TO TOP

"I enjoy your class. I think I need to get out of my head, relax and feel the music more to be able to dance hip-hop. Very different mode from the technical ballroom stuff I do and teach, but this is really good for me. I am excited about the journey :-)!" - Linda C.

"I loved your encouraging message. I've wanted to take a Hip Hop class for a long time and haven't because I didn't believe in myself.  But, if I put aside what I see on that show 'So You Think You Can Dance' about judging, and just enjoy the fun of dancing, I will truly love learning." - Lolo M.

"Thanks for returning my email. Antarctica loves Funkmode!!!! Even the penguins are rump shakin! I love dancing so much. Every day at work I'm blastin' my stereo and gettin' down. I also cannot get enough of your Funkmode videos! My group here on base watches them and then teach ourselves the dances. The videos of our performances are on my Facebook account. We've done your 'Hello, Good Morning' dance (mixed with 'Like a G6' and the Pink Panther Theme Song where we all dressed as old time gangsters and made a car that we rolled up in) and the 'Show Me What You Workin' With' dance (mixed with 'Sideways' where we dressed as cowboys and combined some boot scootin' with some bootay shakin'!!!) I really enjoyed the E-40 'Show Me What You Workin' With'. That choreography is HOT! I would love to send you some pics of life down here, if you'd like to see them. When I leave here in October, I get the amazing opportunity to travel the world. Gettin' some sunshine and some warm weather will be great! I'm feelin' a lil vampirish not seeing the sun for months and need to thaw. I plan on going to southeast Asia, South America, and would absolutely LOVE to visit you guys in the Bay area and join a class or two, if you guys would have me. That'd be a dream come true! You guys all seem to have a really good time, and I'm all 'bout that! I've actually considered moving to the Bay area once I'm done with the Antarctic experience. Hope to hear from you soon!" - Travis G.

"Yesterday as you talked about making the class accessible to all different types of people I was reminded of my first Funkmode experience about a year ago. You may find this hard to believe based on how great I look in class on a weekly basis these days, but I came in without any prior experience. So what compels a guy to Google 'hip hop class 94598' at 2am on a random weeknight? Who really knows, but I knew I had to sign up before I talked myself out of it. Week 1 rolls around and pretty much everybody I know said, 'WTH are you doing taking this?' I definitely had some serious doubts stepping into the studio, but the entire crew and everyone in class made the night uber enjoyable. Plus choreo to an E-40 song? Awesome. I'll probably never know exactly why I signed up, maybe I had that 'do it anyway' mentality you mentioned that night, but I'm glad I did. Keep up the good work because I enjoy learning new things from you all." - Curtis C.

"I was at a wedding of a college friend last night and hit the dance floor for 4 hours straight. Everybody was loving it and I was not even thinking, just dancing and had a great time. Time of my life. Thank you so much for everything. If I went before our classes, I would have sat down all day and would have been bored. But, after these classes, I just had an awesome time. Can't wait for the rest of our private lessons." - Obaid S.

"I miss all of these people! If there was ever a studio I belonged to where I felt the freedom to be me without judgment, it is FUNKMODE. I have been on dance teams and other studios throughout my life where it's about what you know and how well you know it ... cliques, judgments ... but FUNKMODE will never be that, for it does not have the capacity. I don't normally get all gooey but I really wanted to give a shout out and say I miss you guys, you are the best, and I hope to see you when I'm home next month." - Nikki C.

He was concentrating so hard it cracked me up. If he were able to focus in school the way he did watching you his teacher would be thrilled! You are exactly what I wanted to see! You seem to really enjoy the kids (if not, you fake well enough for me) and your selection of music was great. It was obvious that you had a plan set up and were completely prepared. I was really impressed." - Shawn K.

"My daughter just loves Hip Hop. Since she was about a late 4 year old she wanted Hip Hop. Of course, that was hard to find for someone so young. Now that isn't a issue. She is so thrilled to go to your class every week. Many thanks for all your hard work." - Kim L.

"It's marvelously refreshing to watch and see your approach unfold. As a parent of four I have to choose wisely which activities my children will participate in. I will only taxi from here to there if the class is more than a babysitting assignment for the person I am entrusting my kids with for the hour. Very quickly I came to the conclusion that role models were more critical than the activity. As far as I'm concerned you're right on track on taking the kids development/education to heart. Keep up the good work." - Mary K.

I will definitely be returning to class soon, and don't be surprised if the new husband tags along ... I think you've made a new dancer for life!" - Juliana M.

"I wanted to thank you again for planning and choreographing such an AMAZING flash mob! It's crazy that I've only known you guys for a year and you've already been a part of so many of my favorite life moments. You are such fun people and I enjoy every second I get to spend with you guys. Anyway, I doubt you all are told enough the impact you have on the lives of your students so I wanted to let you know. Thanks again for all the fun you've added to my life!" - Casey D.

"I just wanted you to hear again how much my family enjoyed the show last night. My sons and daughters-in-law are not big theater goers, so when I asked for us all to go for my birthday, they were not excited. Everyone went along because the grandkids would probably like it. My oldest son was sitting next to me and 10 minutes into the show he said, 'Mom, this is fantastic.' Later he said, 'You scored Mom for picking this show for your celebration.' He went on and on all night. When we all talked outside after the show, both of my sons and their wives were trying to understand why they hadn't been coming to the theater - but are now planning to become users. Isn't that great? My third son lives in Portland with his wife and daughter. The three grandkids that were at the show kept saying, 'Madeleine should be here, she would love this.' Anyway, I could go on and on. The singing was great, the staging was fantastic, but the dancing MADE THE SHOW. I am proud to know you. Now I am going to check out your website." - Janet A.

"Thank you so much for the kind words. There are certain groups that exude professionalism, vision and respect that I have the pleasure of inviting into our space. These are the companies that I want coming back time and time again. Funkmode is definitely one of them. Your commitment to the end product, fun and energy is great to see. You focus on getting the best final product you can, without losing sight of the fact that it is still supposed to be fun for the kids. I hope that this relationship will continue as long as I am around and beyond so you guys will have a home here at the theatre." - David L. (The Village Theatre)

"I brought my grandson's great-grandma to see him and the timely show you put on 'No Bullies Allowed'. I've haven't been to a more rewarding, entertaining and timely performance in a while. All the performers were great and you're all to be congratulated on the choreography and dialogue you all put together. A great show and I'm glad I attended. You folks were right on and the audience was applauding the entire time, we all loved it. Congrats and keep up the great shows. My grandson is only 4 now but if I have any say in it, I vote to keep him in it for a long time and when his sister gets older she can join him!" - Maryanne L.

"Congratulations on such a successful show! We were all so impressed with the final show and can't wait to receive the DVD. Please know that our daughter has really enjoyed her first year at Funkmode and the show boosted her confidence tremendously. Her confidence tends to keep her on the perimeter; only dipping in a toe. Two weeks ago, however, she told me she wants to make dance a bigger priority. She was also excited to share some fun exchanges she had with other kids in the program this weekend. I can see her rolling up her pants and wading in (she's not a jumper). Thank you. Your commitment and dedication to enriching our children's lives are not overlooked." - Staci R.

"On behalf of our school and myself, I just wanted to say thank you again for a fantastic morning of dance instruction on October 26th. While your energy, skill and expertise were recognized by the students, our principal and I appreciated your organization, clear directions and positive motivation that you displayed. You connected immediately with the students, many of whom had never really tried Hip-Hop before. You made them feel safe and secure to try the moves and create their own. And by allowing many students a moment on the stage, you empowered them to have the confidence to try something new, in full view of their peers. All the while, everyone was having great fun, while they got a great cardio workout. So thank you once again for a great morning. Your positive, high energy class was perfectly matched to the needs of our fifth grade class." - John B.

"I've only heard amazing reviews about your session from the mini fling!! The boys were apparently a little against joining it but heard they ended up loving it more than the girls.

It was delightful to see him at the dance party interacting with the other B-boys and girls, clearly starting to feel part of the group.

I feel there's a wholesome and positive vibe in this company of teachers and students, and I would like my son to soak it up, even beyond his class time! Again, well done." - Gillian J.
