JillyJazz Dance Arts resumes winter session at Electric Lodge Jan. 9

Friday afternoons in Venice isn’t only for hipsters and happy hours. There’s also a happening for the tiny set just behind Abbot Kinney.

Resuming its winter session on Jan. 9, inside the dance studio at Electric Lodge you’ll hear Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, old school Jackson Five, and see a sea of pink as JillyJazz Kids swings into action every Friday at 3 p.m.

Neighborhood children arrive by strollers, scooters, bikes, and by foot to dance with professional dancers Marina Munoz and Jill Strauss, who have been teaching adults and teens at Electric Lodge for 20 years.

JillyJazz Dance Arts resumes its Kids Dance Classes Jan. 9 to April 10, 2015, for its winter session.

JillyJazz Kids is the creation of Strauss and Kendell Shaffer, a local Venice mom and dancer, who always dreamed of an affordable neighborhood dance school for children in Venice and partnered with Strauss.

The two are both former students of dance master Luigi in NYC.

The Friday classes are full of spinning and leaping little ones who are often spotted at Abbot’s Pizza or Nice Cream following their classes.

It’s a great way for the children to spend a jazzy Friday afternoon in Venice.
