GROOVAROO BAY AREA

About GroovaRoo Bay Area

Welcome to GroovaRoo Bay Area!

 

GroovaRoo Bay Area started in San Francisco and Walnut Creek in January 2017.

 

What is unique about Groovaroo in this location? GroovaRoo Bay Area classes serve families throughout the Greater Bay Area from San Francisco to Berkeley, and throughout the east bay in Walnut Creek and Concord.

 

* We are also happy to travel to homes of parents who would like to host a class with at least 5 other participants.

 

FUN FACTS: Classes are held at child-centered play spaces (SensationAll kids gym) and once a month we have class outdoors at a local park in Walnut Creek.

Bay Area Teachers

Anthea Yugawa

Certified GroovaRoo Teacher

Anthea believes wholeheartedly that music and dancing feeds the soul and is a natural stress reliever. She began taking classes in jazz and hip hop for recreation as a child and then competed in dance and cheer competitions from elementary school through high school.

 

Anthea was inspired to become a Groovaroo teacher after taking a hip-hop jazz class in the Spring 2016 that re-sparked her LOVE for dance. She feels that babywearing dance class is the perfect way to blend her passion for dancing to soulful music while connecting with her daughter, Hana and other parents in the babywearing community. Her goal is to connect, inspire, and share the sacred space Groovaroo creates.

 

Anthea studied Human Development and Psychology at UC Davis and completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California. She currently works at UCSF as the Deputy Director of the Center for Science, Education and Outreach where she provides academic advising and counseling for 1st generation, underserved, and underrepresented high school students in San Francisco.

 

Fun Facts: Anthea LOVES being active outdoors whether it is running, swimming, hiking, or having a picnic with her family and friends! She used to compete in triathlons for about 10 years and hopes to do get back into them one day. Outside of GroovaRoo dancing, she is a part of a year round Hula Halau. She has a sweet daughter who loves dancing which makes GroovaRoo that much sweeter for her!
