I have been in BCAI for around 5 years in almost all of the classes taught there. BCAI means a place I can basically just be myself and meet other people too. My favorite part is meeting new younger kids and being able to teach them some things I know myself

Bboy-Ninja (Dawson PG)

I’ve been at bcai since I was nine 1/2. I am now 16 and BCAI has always been a safe place for me. It’s a family and you’ll meet a lot of brilliant people who you can trust and count on. We have tons of fun but you also need to keep in mind that this is a dance team. Sometimes we need to get serious to get work done and if everyone is on the same page it’s easier.


My name is Juin and I’ve been dancing at BCAI for 6 years. I love dancing and doing other activities and I plan to do more. Working with other people with different skill sets and skill levels plus exploring interests is what BCAI means to me and I love that. My favorite about being here is interacting with kids my age and getting the opportunities/experience I can get from amazing leaders and teammates.


My name is Eu’Nique White. I been at BCAI for about 5 years now! This has been a very safe space to me. It gave me many connections and resources to make my move for college. Not only did I become a talent dancer , I also learned many life skills along the way such as resume building! My favorite part is being a big sister to my peers and the coaches leaving a life changing impact on me!
