We are excited to offer a master class with Mr. Leveron “Peanut” Washington. Mr. Washington has been dancing and educating youth for many years. His training includes the Alvin Ailey School and he has worked with artists such as Cameo, The Rolling Stones, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Gloria Estefan, and Julio Sabala. In addition to his performances with so many recognizable names he has performed with Fred Bratcher, Fred Benjamin, Dance Alive, and Dance America Dance Companies. After many years of touring and performing Mr. Washington began to turn his attention to training young dancers and giving back to them what he was so fortunate to experience. He has been a lead instructor for the dance department at the infamous French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts for over 20 years. Here he has inspired many generations of young dancers that have gone on to have impressive dance careers on and off Broadway including Mamma Mia, the International tour of West Side Story, Billy Elliot, and 13. Furthermore, many of his students have gone on to perform in the commercial arena with artists such as Miley Cirus. Mr. Washington continues to live within the greater Miami area and is looking forward to his visit to Philadelphia.
We will offer a Master Class on Friday and then Peanut will do 45 minute private sessions Friday night/Saturday. Space is limited for private sessions so please respond asap to reserve your dancer a space. Attached is a flyer with additional information.
