American singer-songwriter-dancer-choreographer Bobby Newberry will organise a ‘Jazz Funk Master Class’ in India in September.

“I have never been to India and it’s a country with such passion, love for dance and arts. I really felt that I should visit India and throw myself into their love and culture,” Newberry said in a statement.

“I want the dancers to grow as artistes and be stronger than they are now. So, for this I have initiated the method of dance workshop. I want the dancers to come in with open heart and mind rather than with any judgement, only then they will learn the real sense of dance.
