As for the programs we will focus on, Boogiezone High School.
As for promotional materials, the Boogiezone Exchange Program.
As for what we will work towards is an academic credited program, which would require grants for research and development, but majority of us feels this is a good direction and something we should explore.

We also discussed what was necessary to incorporate and approved such action items, and agreed to discuss the pending items on a future date.

I will attach the incorporating action list as well as the 1st draft of bylaws and the 1st draft of articles of incorporation to this discussion.

Please do provide feedback in the comments below. Please reference any links or any notes you may have taken at the meeting.

As well please update any major discussion here.

To conclude two exceptional students of Boogiezone High School presented at our meeting. We agreed that we would provide them more support, by one drafting a website, two an area where they can showcase their resume, three the appropriate press releases, four letter of recommendations.

Once this is done we would organize a campaign around their efforts in community development, fundraising, and final showcase. By doing this we want to be able to provide a social retreat such as big bear, scholarships for deserving students, and grants for upcoming events.

The event that they proposed if done right, with the proper sponsors, community partners, and donors can effectively raise 30,000 dollars.

The two students who presented was Daisy and Kristen.

They will discuss with their director Alexis, to confirm if they are on board. We await her response, but in general the student leaders were ecstatic.

I look forward to what we can do as a board in the future and what this means for Boogiezone. I am confident we will succeed. Thank you Elm for giving us this opportunity.

A new era is emerging. A social movement garnered by dancers of all styl...es and backgrounds and a growing interest in all things related to dance by fans of every age around the globe. Thanks to the media, television shows like “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars,” dance inspired commercials, and movies like “Step Up,” dance is reaching a broader audience. Similarly, the internet has allowed us all to reach areas of the world where dance does not readily exist.

On the forefront of this new movement is Boogiezone.com – YOUR online dance community connection! First established in 2002, Boogiezone is known by thousands worldwide for offering a place where aspiring and professional dancers, choreographers, dance groups, and the fans that love them come to meet, greet, inspire, be inspired, network and build relationships in the process. Four years ago the concept of “Community” in the dance scene was unheard of. Now, Boogiezone is responsible for bringing groves of dancers together, known by many worldwide as the most active online dance community to join. The idea of Boogiezone and the massive grass roots movement which emerged from it has definitely influenced the way the entertainment industry runs and behaves.

Simply imagine a communication hub that bridges the gap between aspiring and professional dancers around the world. That is Boogiezone. The dance community hotspot where anyone who wants to share with others their passion for dance and performance can meet, greet, inspire, be inspired, make connections and build relationships in the process. Together, we represent a fresh, new, community comprised of passionate people, ready to take dance to the next level.

Currently, Boogiezone has thousands of registered members online, with thousands upon thousands visiting our pages every month. We can’t forget to include the thousands of subscribers who watch our extensive collection of nearly 3,000 plus class videos on YouTube and the hundreds of hungry students that fill our ten regularly scheduled Community Classes worldwide! As a result our community continues to grow at a remarkable rate. The attention we have received has enabled us to sponsor the largest dance competitions like “Hip Hop International,” shows like ‘Groovaloo’, work with the largest dance conventions like “Monsters of Hip Hop” and partner with movie powerhouses like Lionsgate Films and Sony Pictures. We are also supported by the industry’s top talent agencies like MSA and Bloc, major dance studios like Millennium Dance Complex, dance groups like Quest Crew and countless choreographers to the stars like Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, and Mariah Carey.
