Four E's Model
We introduce schools and students to the joys of hip-hop dance through one-time performances, assemblies, and beginner dance workshops to attract future participation.
School partners host afterschool BDCP clubs (affectionately called crews).
Crews learn foundational movement in 8-week, 16-week, or 32-week sessions.
Students may audition for a city-wide team for advance-level dance, choreography, and artistry.
An adult dance company of working professionals provide students with artistic and academic mentorship.
Collegiate hip-hop dancers organize college campus experiences.
Students that participate 2 or more years at the Engage phase can train to lead Expose and Explore programming as teaching artists.
Training incorporates the following 21st Century Skills: collaboration, communication, initiative and accountability, and creative and critical thinking.
