If it wasn’t for the Full Year Scholarship I was awarded, chances are I wouldn’t have joined illFX this year, and I wouldn’t have gotten to meet all the great people I enjoy spending my Fridays, Sundays and some Saturdays with.

Dancing with Katherine, Eddie and Cody has been the best part of illFX, because you all really push me to be a better dancer, and person.
— Kamisha
 IllFX helped me find an even deeper passion and love for dance and it’s supportive community. Regardless of my skill level, the instructors constantly pushed me to the limit and even past. Thanks to illFX I have grown so much as a dancer, and as a person, it’s made me so much more positive and gave me a reason to look forward to my future. I enjoy dancing with illFX because the community and it’s dancers are such genuinely great people all round that support you no matter what, push you and boost your confidence. I wouldn’t be the dancer I am right now if it weren’t for illFX.  — Moises

Having the opportunity to dance and train with illFX this past year, has been absolutely amazing! I look forward to going to class every week and getting to see my friends, and getting the opportunity try different styles of dance! I love dancing with illFX, because its always such a fun and encouraging experience. It’s a positive environment, where I can share my passion of dance, and learn and grow from my friends and teachers!

IllFX has really affected me by bringing me more into the dance community and it also helped me become a better dancer. For example, I pick up choreography way faster now and I learned how to really use my body when dancing! I love dancing with illFX because they don’t just bring hiphop onto the table but they give you a variety of different dances styles for you to try. Like House, Afrohouse, Popping, Locking and way more! Lastly, I love dancing with illFX because they are so welcoming and it really makes me feel like I’m part of a big happy family! ❤

illFX has given me an opportunity to grow not only as a dancer, but as a person too. I grew up involved in a lot of different sports, but nothing I’ve ever done has compared to dance - and that has a lot to do with illFX. I was hooked as soon as I started. illFX has an impeccable line of teachers, but the environment they create is equally as impressive. It’s welcoming and motivating. The directors and the rest of the faculty are all passionate about growth and are willing to go above and beyond to help each individual dancer. Throughout my involvement with illFX I have gained more self-confidence and an overwhelming sense of community. Above all, my favourite part is that hard work is valued. If you’re willing to put in the work, there is a place for you. illFX lives and breathes the fundamental values of street dance: peace, love, unity, and fun.
