• Hello & Welcome!

  • Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor

    -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


    Monsters Dance is thrilled to present its new eMpower Program, a fun and supportive hiphop dance class and party for dancers with special needs.


    Monsters tours the country with world renowned hiphop choreographers, plus auditions for thousands of dollars in scholarships, seminars, performance opportunities, freestyle battles, and much more!


    In keeping with its mission to provide dancers with real opportunities, these unique eMpower classes, held on Friday evening in as many cities as possible, will allow dancers with special needs the chance to express themselves in a fun and safe environment, free of charge.


    All are welcome to join our dance family with the goal to "eMpower" the artist within each individual. No previous dance classes required.

    Monsters Dance was started by Andy and Becky Funk with Becky’s sister, Angie Worley. Collectively, the three developed the unique concept for Monsters Dance based on Becky and Angie’s background in competitive dance, and Andy’s experience in business and marketing. They saw a need, took a chance and created a Monster!


    While Monsters has grown tremendously, the company always strives to maintain the family environment on which it was built.




    Yes, that’s really his last name! Andy graduated from Towson State University in 1996 with a double major in Mass Communications and Communication Studies. He worked in a variety of areas from freight logistics and non-profit development to baseball tour guide and major event planning.


    In 2002, he left his full-time job to run the family business, a dance studio in Maryland that he and his wife started three years earlier. The entrepreneurial bug would not allow him to stop there and with the help of his wife and sister-in-law, they created Monsters Dance in 2003.


    Driven largely by the experience of losing his brother, Alan, to Leukemia in 1990, Andy continues to work hard to make a positive impact and create meaningful opportunities for dancers and individuals throughout the world.


    Becky is the dancer in the Funk family and the reason why Monsters exists. Had it not been for Becky leaving her job as a Health Educator to open a dance studio, the idea would have probably never come up. Becky graduated from Towson State University in 1997 with a B.S. degree in Health Science.


    After spending so many years dancing competitively, she saw a need for more hip hop classes on the convention circuit and more career opportunities for hip hop dancers. This vision lead to the development of Monsters’ unique format and mission.


    In addition to managing two businesses and coaching tee ball, Becky and Andy love spending time with their three boys!
