YVHS students get dance tips from B-Girl Bonita Lovett of the Beat Freaks

Ygnacio Valley High Dance Director Kelly Cooper wants to share the news that her Advanced Production Dance III students had a very special master hip hop class last week, led by B-Girl Bonita Lovett — who is a member of the Beat Freaks, as seen on Amercia’s Best Dance Crew.

Lovett also performs with the Groovaloos and the Rock Steady Crew, Cooper said in a Sept. 10 email.

“She is a wonderful and talented professional in the industry,” Cooper wrote, “and the Warriors were excited to have her in to teach a routine they will be performing at our welcome back rally on Friday.”

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the rally, because I was on vacation last Friday.

I urged Cooper to let us know ahead of time if another master class like this happens in the future, so we can send our own photographer to catch the action — and possibly even videotape some of the students’ dance moves!

Based on the @YgnacioValley tweets after the rally, it looks like the whole event was a great success! :)

The Northgate Jazz Band class also invites master musicians in to teach clinics to students.

Does you school offer master classes?
