Dance Program/Broadway Dance Team

The Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley launched its Dance Program in 2007 and then launched its Broadway Dance Team in September of 2009. Dance includes Hip Hop, Tap, Pop, Contemporary, a beginner’s class and a Competition Broadway Dance Team. Each year, six dancers between the ages of 10 and 17 are selected to join the prestigious dance team. The majority of these young women have not had any formal dance training, which makes their list of accomplishments even more impressive:

  • 4 years National BGC Talent winners performing at BGC National Conference (an unprecedented record)
  • In 2010, 2011 and 2012 our team was chosen to open the RAWARDS in Hollywood
  • In 2013, our team was selected to perform at LA Live's Holiday Event
  • In 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 our team performed in the Toluca Lake Open House
  • Featured in Super Deafy, a newly released movie
  • Opening/closing numbers at BGC of Burbank Annual Creative Arts Showcase

The Dance Program is under the direction of Creative Arts Director Sherry DeLizia. Michelle Bouse is a Board Member, volunteer and former NYC dancer, who dedicates her time to the dance team acting as their choreographer as well as their dance teacher. She works with the Broadway dance team twice a month while they practice in the Club’s Dance Studio the remainder of the time.
