    Our goal is to provide a professional quality dance education that brings confidence, discipline, and
    a strong sense of commitment to our dancers.


    We know you have options when choosing a studio, so why choose B. Funk?


    We are family owned and operated and carry those family friendly values and ideas in all we do. You are not only a dancer at our studio, but you become part of the B. Funk Family.


    The primary owner and artistic director, Laura Edwards, is accomplished and qualified in several styles of dance including hip hop, tap, contemporary, jazz, and ballet. She also is an award-winning choreographer and actively works in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. A Maryland native, Laura moved to Los Angeles in 2006 after dancing in the successful movie, Step Up, which was filmed in Baltimore. From there, her dance and choreography career thrived. Her other film credentials as a dancer include: Hairspray, Step Up 2, Footloose, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Hannah Montana, Big Momma’s House 3, Ghostbusters, and Sandy Wexler. Laura’s dancing experience includes working with Beyonce, Madonna, and Miley Cyrus as well as touring the world with Britney Spears on the Circus Tour as one of only four female dancers. She assisted with choreography for Jennifer Lopez, So You Think You Can Dance, Sean Kingston, and Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour and Believe Tour. Her television work includes Dancing with the Stars, Glee, America’s Best Dance Crew, Jimmy Fallon, Billboard Music Awards, and a Grammy’s Target commercial. Now residing primarily in Maryland, Laura instructs hip hop, jazz, and contemporary classes at the studio. Laura also guest teaches at many studios and conventions around the world.


    Our instructors are highly trained and work very hard to maintain an appropriate balance of discipline and fun in each of their classes. A brief bio is listed below for our instructors.


    We offer a wide variety of dance styles that allow students to explore their individuality and excel in many dance forms. The numerous levels offered at B. Funk allow us to cater to the recreational to pre-professional dancer. We re-evaluate our programs annually and make any necessary changes to keep our curriculum fresh and current.


    In addition to our amazing B. Funk faculty, we frequently host master classes with some of the top choreographers in the music and entertainment industry.
