Show Off Dance (SODC) 

About SODC

OUR MISSION is to help aspiring dancers get the most out of their dancing and career by providing on-going performance opportunities and affordable dance training taught by some of the best choreographers and instructors in the industry and in LA.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity for dancers to get intense training in various styles of dance at a fraction of what they would pay at a regular studio dance class, while also receiving more one-on-one, personalized attention, industry mentoring and opportunities to show off.  At SODC, you will be surrounded by other serious dancers and learning from passionate instructors in a supportive, inspirational and motivational environment.  This is an industry-readiness program for serious artists seeking to gain experience, network and grow.  

Company members are expected to rehearse weekly and attend all monthly master classes, company classes and all training workshops.  Throughout the season, company members participate in photo sessions, video shoots, seasonal concerts, receive choreographic opportunities, networking opportunities and various performance and gig opportunities.

The Show Off Dance Company is in its sixth season, and has seen its dancers grow tremendously.  Our dancers, through SODC, have had the opportunity to book shows, tours, television, and print.  SODC & Show Off Dolls won "Performing Artist of the Year" in Hollywood & were featured and direct booked on America's Got Talent.  Our company members have grown from student to instructors and aspiring choreographers.  SODC as a company also grows, improves and expands each season as well.  

Our program is open to dancers of all ages, levels and experience.   After auditioning, dancers are divided according to ability level and age.  The program is split into two sessions per season annually, one in the Fall/Winter and the second in Winter/Spring.  Our Companies and Intensive Training / Industry Prep program run until June each season, with three months off for summer vacation, camps and summer intensives, and resume again in the Fall.  Dates may vary. Rehearsal schedules may also vary for dancers.  Most groups meet every Sunday at Show Off Dance Center for their scheduled rehearsal time, with additional rehearsals scheduled for special eventss.

Through our Intensive Training Program, Company members will have the opportunity to rehearse for performances, competitions, auditions, gigs and events, study with professionals, train weekly (in hip hop, modern, jazz, ballet, popping, breaking, tumbling, cheer and more) condition, stretch, learn rehearsal etiquette, receive resources on agencies, auditions, photographers, classes and more.  The Intensive Training Program is designed to prepare dancers for a professional level career in dance, training our company members to be a versatile, professional, strong, dynamic performers.  Learn how to follow your dreams with strength, skills, determination, commitment, support and INTENSITY.  Enhance your skills and techniques while showing off the ones you already have.  

Our company members pay a monthly membership fee which includes all company classes, master classes and workshops.  There may be additional expenses for warmups, uniforms, costumes, wardrobe and photos, and company members may be expected to participate in fundraisers.  Each program has different requirements, so speak to your coach about what gear you may need to purchase.  Not all crews / teams require additional purchases.

Come train and grow in a supportive environment.  At Show Off Dance, we show love, show respect, show support and show off.  We represent who we are to the best of our current abilities with extreme confidence and pride, while also supporting others and putting positive energy out in a community / industry full of intimidation and competition.  We are not only a community and a studio, we are a family

What is SODC & Show Off Dolls?  What's the difference between the companies?

SODC is a pre-professional dance company / crew and intensive training program.  Styles vary from hip hop, to jazz and contemporary. In addition to shooting videos and performing showcases SODC members pay a regular monthly monthly fee which includes all workshops, classes and guest instructors. Through SODC, our members have the opportunity to study with various choreographers. Over the last several seasons, our company members - through SODC - to book gigs: television, award shows, music videos, live stage shows and tours. The objective of SODC is to foster the building of relationships between company members and choreographers we work with which include, but are not limited to, the instructors listed at showoffdance.com/instructors.php. This is an industry prep program that includes mentoring, image consulting and training in all styles weekly.


Show Off Dolls Crew (SODC), is a professional burlesque-fusion dance company. Styles include jazz, hip hop, contemporary and acro fused with tasteful burlesque. There are no workshops nor regular rehearsals, but the Dolls may host and teach workshops as fundraisers. The Dolls only meet for show and gig rehearsals, or sometimes just to bond.  Dancers are required a keen ability to pick up various styles of choreography quickly with impeccable execution.  The objective of the Dolls is to build the crew brand and market the crew for appearances, gigs with artists, music videos, clubs, headlined shows and so on. Technical training and specialty skills (aerial, pole, etc.) are a plus. Dolls must be comfortable with showing off their bodies and be full of charm, charisma and beauty inside and out.

Both companies require skilled dancers with excellent communication, dedication and professionalism. There are paid performances opportunities for both companies, but the Show Off Dolls is a professional level only company with no classes or training opportunities.  Both companies' head choreographer and director is Ebonee Arielle "Flip". Both companies may perform or shoot projects together, and both have various choreographers. There are also opportunities in both SODC & Show Off Dolls to teach workshops or choreograph. In all, we are a family of dancers and choreographers who has been growing together and showing off together.
