Jill Strauss, a well-loved jazz dance teacher in Los Angeles for over fifteen years and Upper School faculty in the Crossroads School Dance Department, is branching out to give kids a great dance education in the tradition of the New York City schools where she grew up. Jill was a protégé of jazz dance master Luigi, eventually becoming one of his top dancers and on faculty at Luigi’s Jazz Centre, New York City.  As a performer, Jill brings to her school the magic of being on stage, the joy of connecting to the art and the classical training of a true dancer.

Kendell Shaffer’s Neighborhood Ballet at Electric Lodge has brought ballet and Broadway dance to Venice kids for the past three years. She also studied jazz with Luigi beginning at the age of twelve.

Marina Blanche Munoz joins the team as dance teacher. A recent graduate of AMDA American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles, Marina has performing in and around Los Angeles exciting audiences with her powerful style and flair and has been an instructor at JillyJazz Kids Dance Workshops for the past two years.
