Dance Performance | Funkanometery SF | TEDxUCDavisSF
Funkanometery SF shows us a great display of urban dance.
Funkanometry was founded in 2002 by Emerson Aquino and Kyle Wai Lin, when they saw a need for quality training, accessible dance classes, and youth mentorship in the Bay Area.
For over 10 years the organization was run by talented volunteers and staff, namely former Executive Director and current Board President, Gina Mariko Rosales. Over that time, Funkanometry SF won numerous awards recognizing their leadership in the field of urban dance including the prized GOLDIE Award (Guardian Outstanding Local Discovery) by the SF Bay Guardian newspaper. The organization’s recognized programs include youth company Funksters, Funks SF Company Class, Funks First Sundays and it’s flagship community event, The Sockhop.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
