Jazz Master Class: Jessica Starr (Ages 10 and Under)

  • Karen Sachs Academy of Dance 3 Main Street Reisterstown, MD 21136 USA (map)

About a year and a half ago, right before competition season, one of our own dancers was diagnosed with cancer. She went through a year of treatment and was told she was clear until a second diagnosis was made only a couple months after being in remission.

Through all her own trials, her spirits have been high and she even has started her own foundation. With Ari's Bears, Ariella makes and gets bears donated and delivers them to other children also battling cancer.

Jessica Starr is a choreographer based out in LA with a nonprofit organization called MusEffect. Her MUSERS (dancers) are aways supporting and dancing for a cause including dancers against cancer. Her mini musers have built about 40 bears and she is heading here to Baltimore in just 2 weeks to hand deliver them to Ariella herself! 

While Jessica is in town, she will be teaching 2 master classes to bring in more love and support to our beauty Ariella! On Tuesday, September 4th, she will be teaching a jazz masterclass for dancers age 10 and under from 4:30 to 6:00. She will also be teaching a Jazz Funk masterclass on Wednesday, September 5th from 5:00 to 6:30 for dancers age 11 and up.

Please join us for this event! All dancers are welcome as we want to show as much support to Ariella as we possibly can! The pre-registration price is $25 with a $15 fee per additional family member. Registration at the door is $30.

All additional proceeds from this event will either be donated back to Ari's Bears to build more bears for children also battling cancer or for cancer research. 

For more information or to sign up, call the Academy at 410-833-3733. The more the merrier! We hope to see many faces, not only of our own, but all dancers in the community! Our doors our open!
