WHAT: FunikiJam is part class and part live show - with kids in the starring roles! Starting with a high-energy warm up and hello song, they play instruments, sing, dance, and laugh their way through seasonal celebrations from global destinations giving students the chance to solo on featured instruments, jam with the group and sing into a microphone.
