“Way of the B-GIRL” – a new b-girl class starts this week!

What’s up, Massive Monkees community!? I’m starting a b-girl class at The Beacon!

"Way of the B-girl" is an introductory b-girl dance class taught by Anna Banana Freeze! Classes will take place during select Thursday evenings (8-9pm) in July & August 2013. Ladies - discover yourself through hip-hop!

 Do you or any other ladies you know want to LEARN TO BREAK as well as practice WITH OTHER FEMALES?

Then CHECK OUT this introductory B-GIRL dance class taught by Massive Monkees’ own, b-girl Anna Banana Freeze, for a LIMITED TIME only!

In this class, YOU will become empowered, be stronger and feel good as well as:

1.) Learn basic moves (toprocks, drops, footwork, freezes)
2.) Explore breakin’ concepts such as originality, style, character, battling, etc.
3.) Build strength and stamina as we continuously drill moves and sweat out stress during class!
4.) Discover truly awesome music
5.) Learn about b-girl history and discover b-girl role models from around the world
6.) Engage in discussion topics such as ‘how to ignore males’ and ‘you are a b-girl and an invididual’
7.) Have FUN!

What are you waiting for?! SHARE this event and COME THROUGH on the following 5 class dates:

– July 11
– July 25
– August 1
– August 8

Peace & <3: Anna Banana Freeze 😉

Thanks to 335 wonderful people, our campaign to Keep The Beacon Lit raised an unbelievable $32,256! We set out to raise these funds to build out a studio where we can continue to serve and bring community together. Over the next year we will be providing our current  classes at the Beacon, as well we will add additional programs to better serve you, our community. Your contribution allows us necessary heating, office space, electrical upgrades, security & safety installations, the ability to host events and more….   YOU made this possible! We give you our wholehearted gratitude and will thank you by continuing to grow the Beacon into a creative space where all are welcome and all can grow.  From the Massive Monkees and partner teaching artists at The Beacon,  MUCH LOVE & THANK YOU!

KEEP THE BEACON LIT!

It’s kinda crunch time, friends… Only 66 hours left to help “KEEP THE BEACON LIT!” We are gratefully accepting donations $5 and up! A generous little 3-year-old at our Renton Tech show today handed us $5 herself – THANK YOU community for your continued support!

Campaign to keep Massive Monkees Studio: The Beacon open is now live!

Massive Monkees, along with partner teaching artists are asking for your help to KEEP THE BEACON LIT!

With nearly 400 students already signed up at The Beacon and more signing up every day, we want to continue growing and serving our community through our fun and unique arts based programs.

We have some major plans for expanding the studio to offer a larger variety of classes as well as a plan for conversion of The Beacon into a multi use performance, event and studio space.

Please take a moment to watch the video linked below, learn all about our plans for the future, and how you can help Keep the Beacon Lit!

Thank you so much for your time and continued support of Massive Monkees over the past 14 years!
