Through Phunk, Reia Briggs-Connor has combined her teaching degree with her knowledge of the Hip-Hop culture, to create a positive instrument for change and encouragement to the younger generations to thrive. Phunks impressive resume includes collaborations with: MTV, NBA, NFL, WNBA, Disney World, and performances with Britney Spears, TLC, Run DMC, No Doubt, Jessica Simpson and Alvin Ailey.
Today, Phunk Phenomenon has grown far above and beyond what co-creators Brian White and Reia Briggs-Connor ever imagined possible. The studio currently has 300 students and is home to the Boston Celtics Jr. Dancers, “LilPhunk” (ages 5-13). Reia Briggs-Connor and Brian White are also making plans to take Phunk Phenomenon to a national stage, by partnering with the charitable organization W.A.R.M 2 Kids (We are All Role Models).
