Summer Instructor Spotlight: Ikolo Griffin

To celebrate the start of our second session of summer camp we are spotlighting one of our instructors, Ikolo Griffin, who is teaching his “Just Turns” workshop to the students this summer.

From the age of eight, Ikolo trained at the San Francisco Ballet School, taught by renowned master teachers from around the world. He has danced professionally for over twenty years with San Francisco Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Joffrey Ballet, Smuin Ballet, and the San Francisco Opera, among others.

His dancing and teaching speaks for itself.  Watch this clip from our June show to see an inspiring turning variation and learn the four fundamentals of turning.  Re-watch it whenever you want to work on your turns.
