Boogie Shoes Dance Academy was established in 2006, teaching over 200 students since.

The academy did not close during the pandemic because classes were held in zoom meetings.

The students resumed competition in June 2021 on the zoom in the fixed dance and the rock and roll dance, then the regional events before the national final.

Boogie Shoes allowed 83 students to reach the national final and 30 students placed.

Classes at Boogie Shoes resume January 6, ages range from 18 months to adult.
