Describe what you do in town.

I’m a local dance choreographer that specializes in Hip Hop. With 15 years of experience, I’m now hosting Hip Hop WERKshops for Teens and Adults every Sunday at 3pm, $15 a session, at the Music Resource Center. Each session is an hour of nonstop fun with high-energy movement and fat burning cardio. Starting in June, I will start teaching children ages 5-10 at 4pm.

If you have been looking for the best Hip Hop workshop in town, look no further, Ike’s got you covered.

A Manhattan on the rocks from Blue Light Grill. Sweet, bitter, and strong.

Live Arts. Hands down, the best theater you will see in the area! And I love how they welcome new people
