Yes Body travels nation-wide teaching community dance classes and hosting arts jams for people of all ages and abilities.

Yes Body, formerly known as SoulFunktion, was founded by Dance/Music Artist Millie Heckler, DJ Schi the God/Sound Engineer Schivona Johnson, and Executive Producer Dion Evans in the Fall of 2017. Yes Body serves as a ‘traveling party’ dedicated to relentless self-progression and the pursuit of fearlessness. Hosting parties and events, teaching a variety of dance classes, and performing original works, the company advocates for embodied responsibility, upholding values of creativity, individuality, innovation (R.H. Laws of Hip Hop), social equity, and inclusivity at all costs.
