WE OUT HERE!!! Dancers Alliance is representing outside the The class co-created tonight's piece of art. Tonight's lesson was Inspiration. Vulnerability. Courage. The students would let me know if they were inspired to create the next part of the song. I also had @qburdette film class to add to having courage to speak up when inspiration hit. The energy of co-creating something with the class is so rewarding. 
Thank you to everyone in class for being open and experimenting w me! @kaifai35 @jennawalasek @rootedinlove1987 @knee_c 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 #dance #class #freestyle #choreography #create #music #art #inspiration #vulnerability #courage #2016 #YesLife #THANKYOU TONIGHT 4.11.16 | #MasteringTheArtOfDance | @drdancestudio | 7-8:15p | @blocteachla ***Notice*** @qburdette will be filming the whole class.

#thebeatfreaks #beatfreaks #ml #dance #choreography #freestyle #2016 #YesLife #THANKYOU #ACIM today's read... It's really difficult to explain how magical class was tonight... The lesson was Direct, Lead, Create. I randomly selected one person at a time to direct/ lead the class in creating a section of choreography. In the end, the class collectively created this work of art. This snippet does not do justice to the experience we all shared in creating the choreography together.

Thank you @janetlanger @okikoyala @alessandrastenta @sonic_llh_entertainment @nicolasquinten @jessica_nicole_cornejo @revel_day @mike102194 @lolomarie5 @pernillesoe @shanie_12  For sharing in this experiment!!

Teresa Espinosa was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Growing up she was inspired by watching Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Prince. She started her dance training by attending a performing arts junior high and high school, where she was awarded a scholarship to California Institute of the Arts. After receiving a BFA in Dance and moving to Los Angeles, she began to pursue her dance career in earnest. This led to her big break dancing with Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope world tour. Teresa's work as a contributing choreographer garnered her an Emmy Nomination for Janet's HBO Special. Teresa accomplishments throughout her career have included both dancing and choreographing for numerous artists: Britney Spears, Pink, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds Concert in 3D. Her lasting desire to create and share her love of dance with others can be seen in her work with The Groovaloos and The Beat Freaks featured on ABDC Season 3. When in the Los Angeles area, Teresa can be found teaching at the legendary Debbie Reynolds Studios.
