Purfek Academy | FUNKtion Dance Complex

Purfek Academy of NYC moves to Partner With New Jersey Dance Company to Assist with Dance Program

The new Purfek Academy of NYC is in the process of establishing a partnership with the founders of FUNKtion Dance Complex of New Jersey. The partnership is the academy’s effort to enhance the dance program and to create an unforgettable experience for the participants of the programs. The founders of FUNKtion Dance Complex, Christina Rak-Samson and Eric Samson, are experienced dance program leaders and instructors who have more than 20 years of experience (each) in the business of dance, the education of dance, and the FUN of dance!

Purfek Academy is excited to bring on this dance company. They have been seeking an opportunity to expand into the NewYork City market which makes this union “Purfek”! Tyrone Taylor, Executive Director of the academy states, “I am extremely happy that FUNKtion is considering this partnership with us. We have some great programs in voice, piano, violin, and music production, and we are looking forward to adding such a great dance company to our programs! Christy and Eric are well accomplished and have worked with some of the best in the business. By adding the dance program, we also complete our artist development program needs. Therefore, so we are extremely excited.”

With Christy and Eric, the academy will now offer many dance program options such as urban dance, contemporary, stiletto heels, street funk/jazz, ballet, and much more. If you would like to meet the new team, join us on February 21 for our event with the kids from 1-4pm. You will see students demonstrate and exhibit what they are learning under our phenomenal list of instructors.
