You will also explore where ideas come from, discover and define what your dreams are, and then learn how to apply the steps to making them a reality!

Become the Next - THE MOCK AUDITION: What does it take to make it as a professional Dancer in Hollywood? Take part in a very realistic audition as it may occur in Los Angeles. Learn a quick combination from an Industry Choreographer and then audition it in front of a panel of celebrity judges. Afterwards, the judges will share their personal experience and insight with you. By the end of this audition process you will know exactly what it takes to make it in the Industry.

Dance Projects:

The Group Video Project: Ever wanted to be a part of a dance video project, something that can be admired by the Boogiezone Community global Network and shared with through social media?
