Davis Club Dance Team
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee is proud to offer an amazing dance program at the Don & Sallie Davis Boys & Girls Club. In it, members learn dance techniques of various genres and rehearse for live performances at events such as the MVP Salute to Youth Dinner and Celebration.
Our Davis Club Dancers placed 2nd in their division in a regional dance competition this year, qualifying them for the Monsters of Hip Hop Unleashed national competition in Los Angeles in late July 2017, and we’re excited to say they placed 2nd in their group at that competition as well! Last year, our dance team participated in 27 performances, and these opportunities to perform and learn from other professionals will have a big impact on their futures.
The Davis Club’s dance team is led by instructor Cedric Gardner, whose many dance credits include being a finalist on So You Think You Can Dance, a choreographer on FOX’s Empire and NBC’s The Voice. Cedric was featured as one of eight teachers across the nation in Old Navy’s ONWard! campaign, and co-wrote, choreographed and performed a song in collaboration with Pharrell Williams and I Am OTHER. Thanks to Cedric’s tireless efforts to grant our Davis Club Dancers new opportunities, two of the Dance Team members even performed with Cedric in a video for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
