Read what others have said about these programs: 


Where do I even begin, this whole year has flown past so quickly but I could never forget everything I have gained. The friendships I have made have affected me so deeply in such a good way that I don’t think I could ever forget my crew as well as making a stronger and unbreakable relationship with my dance teacher. How much confidence and courage I have gained blew my mind as well as becoming a more professional, focused dancer with a strong positive attitude. I never thought how strong of a person I was until I began this Program.  - Lou Lou Brooks


This Program – wow!! It is so exciting and you feel nervous but alive when the music starts. It has made me more confident and stronger as a dancer. It was an awesome experience and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Backstreet for the opportunity to shine. - Rachel Klein

The Program was one of the greatest experiences that I have ever had here at Backstreet. I found that I was more confident when dancing and connected so well with everyone in my group. WE LAUGHED SO MUCH! You definitely never ever feel left out, but always engaged and part of the group as EVERYONE SHINES, learns and improves together! - Bridgette Layman


The Program REALLY boosted my confidence – an overall GREAT experience! - Alexa Widt


This was a great experience as it helped so much with my confidence. It was extremely fun and gave me the chance to create lifelong friendships with dancers I would have otherwise not met! - Brooke Day


This Program is amazing! I bonded so well with my classmates – starting from the bottom not knowing anyone, and in the end loving them and knowing them like family. I have become more confident and learnt to express my emotions through dance positively, accepting myself for who I am, becoming a much more bright and positive person. I also witnessed a lot of trips, accidents, sickness, heartache, sadness, and all types of emotions and through the Program it has lifted people up, GIVEN PEOPLE STRENGTH, hope and something to look forward to. I love dance very much and the Program was the perfect opportunity to express that! - Jordan Johnson


The Performance Program was one of the best experiences of my life. I made so many great friends and both our groups combined like we were family. It was definitely an experience I will never forget. Not one moment of this program should be taken for granted as it will progress you as a dancer and person. We were told no matter how you are feeling in the moment, always do your best, because you could inspire someone else to do their best! - Shakira Hall


This Program would have be one of the BEST EXPERIENCES I HAVE EVER HAD. What did I get? Friendships, fun, positive challenges and inspiration – an experience of a lifetime. One of the most distinct memories I have is right before our first performance and Shakira is giving us a massive pep talk: “Guys, this is it, we have worked our butts off for this moment, soon it’s going to be over so make every moment count!” At the time I thought “yeah, okay I guess,” then at the end of the week, on the verge of tears, I looked back and remembered those words and thought how painfully true they were. Do it! And don’t ever take any moment of it for granted because these memories and friendships you make will stay with you forever! - Georgia Brooker
