Congratulations Chris A.! Chris is a member of the JAMPAK crew, and puts in countless hours at the studio practicing. If we’re open, Chris is here! Keep up all the hard work!
Any emails sent to us between 6:55pm and 10:40pm Monday July 12th were not received. Our server experienced an outage. Please resend any communique sent during that time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
We need 25 followers to launch our store!
We’re always looking for ways to spread the word about JAMZ, so we recently opened up a groupon merchant account. Please follow us at:
Once we have 25 followers, we can start deals. While I have nothing concrete at the moment, I expect to offer merchandise, tuition discounts, etc in the future. But for now, get us to 25 followers please so we can officially open the store!
I’ll mention this again in our next monthly newsletter. Thanks in advance for spreading the word!
Put out an email earlier with the new date, but not the new price. The price is only $10, not $15. Corrected image below:

Unfortunately, Billy Bell has canceled on us. I received the following message from his agent:
“Billy was just accepted to an international contemporary company and will be gone all summer. I know this is a huge bummer too, I am willing to work with you guys on this and find a suitable replacement FAST.”
Fortunately, while it is indeed a bummer, we have already (over)compensated, and signed two more talents. We’d like to welcome Kupono and Ashley Galvan to our faculty this summer. We will have our site www.soyouthinkyoucanJAMZ.com updated in the coming days. Please pardon us while we continue to distribute the 800 fliers we had printed up with Billy’s picture on them
The good news out of all of this, aside from picking up two wonderful instructors, is the interest from SYTYCD alumni in teaching at our summer intensive is strong… and I’ve had to decline interest from other stars from attending. Yes, I actually had to say, “no thanks” to some folks, and that I’d let them know should anything open up. Should we have any other cancellations (certainly a possibility), we will have no trouble filling the spots. SYTYCD loves JAMZ!
Unfortunately, we will be moving both the tWitch workshop and the FUNK BOX to Saturday, May 14th (one week later than originally planned). The times of the classes will remain the same.
I received the following email from tWitch’s agent:
Hi Jason –
I left you a message at the studio earlier.
Unfortunately I seem the be the bearer of bad news.
tWitch just booked a huge Gatorade campaign which would directly conflict with his May 6th – 8th dates. Is there any way at all we could push it to the following weekend, May 13th – 15th, and keep everything the same?
If you have already signed up, we will of course fully reimburse you if you cannot make the new date. Please call or email us for a prompt refund. My apologies for this situation, but there is not a lot I can do about it. I knew at some point we’d have to face a cancellation of a workshop (or in this case moving of the date), we’ve just been lucky up until this point. Now we know that Gatorade trumps JAMZ
We look forward to seeing you on the new date, May 14th. Rest assured, tWitch feels horrible about this, as he has worked with us in the past… so we’ll be sure to give him grief for you when he steps off the plane
