Contemporary dance reigns supreme at International Dance Academy Hollywood, where the highly qualified instructors train amateurs, professionals, and celebrities—think J-Lo, Natalie Portman, and Lady Gaga—alike. But that doesn’t mean they’re limited to just one genre. The staff teaches an eclectic mix of styles, including Bollywood, reggae dancehall, lyrical hip-hop, and crunk hip-hop.
GROOV3 founder, Benjamin Allen, seems drawn to dance floors. At the school parties and bat mitzvahs of his youth, he was always showcasing his moves. Though he earned a degree in business and communication from Arizona State University, the call of the dance floor proved stronger than that of the corporate world. Soon after graduation, Benjamin moved to Los Angeles to devote fully himself to the art of the groove in numerous TV commercials, musicals, sitcoms, and stage performances. Benjamin shares his passion for dance with students at GROOV3 during non-competitive cardio-dance classes.
