The Subjective Dance Company, also known as, the Subjective Dance Club is a club for individual dancers, as well as, other dance teams, dance crews, and dance companies. We’re building a network to provide more opportunities and training to dancers. We aim to bridge the gap between street and theater dance. Our first and currently only active branch, Subjective Dance Club Virginia (SDCVA), focuses on uniting and raising awareness of the dance community of the Greater Richmond Region of Virginia and the surrounding areas. We launched on February 25, 2016 and continue to successfully create life altering experiences and opportunities for dancers of various ages through events, training, traveling, and bookings. Now approaching year 4, we have successfully launched multiple reoccurring local events, as well as given dancers opportunities to be featured in music videos, participate in live festival performances, be featured on live television, compete and win in competitions, dance in some of the most established dance studios of the Greater Richmond Region, dance in nationally recognized arenas, meet international celebrities, train with industry level choreographers, train for shows like America’s Got Talent and Kid’s Got Talent, and more. Our efforts have led to members being booked for contracts servicing GEICO, Richmond Parks and Recreation, multiple dance studios, Richmond Public Library, ESPN, VSU, VCU, and more. Ultimately, we’ve developed the ability to provide opportunities for street dancers and/or dancers who are self-trained to get paid for doing what they love and/or experience adventures they normally wouldn’t receive in Richmond, Virginia. With this ability, we give hope, inspiration, and valuable life lessons to men and women of various ages. We are different from the average dance company because SDCVA does not only draw attention to events, classes, and shows of our own. We also direct traffic and focus to other organizations, teams, individuals, and companies willing to network and currently teaching or providing platforms to the next generation of dancers. Community outreach is our priority and we are currently working on receiving 501(c)(3) non-profit status for SDCVA. 1
is a multi-part dance competition series set to shine light on the street dancers and battle dancers of the local community. Introduced in July of 2016, each event is different in layout and hopes to bring the surrounding dance community together for a fun and exciting dance event, as well as, serve as a fundraising opportunity for all parties involved. What is SDBG? SDBG is an acronym for @SubjectiveDance BattleGrounds 2
of Virginia is needed and will serve as on-going inspiration for dance enthusiasts of the local community for years to come. We recognize that the talent performers possess in Virginia needs to be seen, embraced, and celebrated here at home before the rest of the world accepts it.. Dancers from Virginia regularly spend a countless amount of time, energy, and money traveling to other states to compete and win dance competitions. Our goal is to give these same dancers a platform in Richmond, Virginia that assists them in becoming local celebrities and/or role models and puts money in their pockets. The youth in the Greater Richmond Region of Virginia need positive and exciting activities in their neighborhoods, local peers they can look up to, and inspiring things to look forward to, especially during these times of quarantining and racial/political tensions. SDBG provides all of these things. Serious participants spend time training, practicing, and even meditating instead of being in the streets, getting into or causing trouble. Less serious participants learn life changing lessons with preparation and time management, and are placed in networking situations that spark positive outcomes for the community. Spectators get inspired to find their own talents or purpose, perfect it, and then present it to the world. Spectators also physically have 0% chance of causing or getting into trouble in the streets when they are busy enjoying themselves at the next @SubjectiveDance BattleGround event. Previous SDBG events have seen participants ages 14 thru 40 and draws spectators from toddlers to grandparents. BY SPONSORING, YOU BECOME A KEY REASON WHY ALL OF THIS IS POSSIBLE! SDBG Sponsors

Next up is SDBG Halloween on Saturdary, October 31, 2020. If weather permits, ideal settings are 17th Street Market, Dogwood Dell Amphitheater, Marcus David Peters Circle, or another Richmond based outdoor area that allows social distancing, fresh air, and a family friendly vibe. All booking reservations of dancers, judges, DJ, Host, etc. are on hold until an official venue is approved. 5 October 31, 2020 is expected to have a high of 48 degrees and possibly be too cold for an outdoor dance event.
