HARD WORK PAYS OFF FOR AN ALABAMA A&M STUDENT
Not only is HBCU Dance Corporation, Inc focused on helping performers learn the dance skills they need, the company also encourages students to work hard academically as well. The hard work of one Alabama student has paid off.
Each year, HBCU Dance Corporation offers dance scholarships to young ladies who perform on the marching band dance team at Historically Black College & Universities (HBCU) and who maintain a 3.0 GPA (or higher.) During the application period of February 1 – April 1, candidates from over 50 HBCU schools are able to apply. Only one scholarship is awarded per year.
HBCU Dance Corporation, a not for profit organization dedicated to promoting healthy living through dance at HBCU Schools, proudly announces that the presentation of their 2014 HBCU Dance Scholarship took place in Alabama on August 16, 2014. The company is no stranger to Alabama as they selected the Alabama State University (ASU) Stingettes to perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA). However, this year’s works are directed towards ASU’s rival university – Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical (A&M) University.
The recipient of this prestigious scholarship is an extraordinarily smart, humble and well-balanced young lady and dancer, Mikaila Hoskin. Mikaila is a sophomore from Columbus Ge orgia. She is a rising second year veteran on the Alabama A&M Marching Maroon & White Dancin’ Divas team, in which she has been re-selected for the 2014-2015 performance season. Mikaila states, “being a member of an HBCU dance line has influenced my life positively in various aspects. I have improved with time management skills by juggling dance schedules, academic work load, volunteer activities, and family/life balance.”
To complete the scholarship application, Mikaila received praiseworthy recommendations from the dance team’s coordinator and captain, who both had nothing but great things to say about Hoskin, who at the time was only a freshman. The team’s coordinator, Chrishana Granger, referred to Hoskin as “an exceptional leader among her peers.” Adrienne Henderson, 2013-2014 Captain of the Dancin’ Divas, wrote, “She has always been a hardworking and determined young lady. No matter what the challenge was, she never gave up and always led by example by working hard in front of her peers.”
There are no days off for this hard-working young lady as she continues to build upon her dance skills on and off the field, as well as during the off-season. As a result, she was selected by her peers to represent the band auxiliary in the Birmingham Times Newspaper and at the University’s High School Senior Day football game.

This summer, V103 The People's Station (CBS Radio) invited HBCU Dance Corporation, Inc to be apart of their Peace in the Streets Block Parties which are hosted at various recreation centers across the Atlanta area. These fun-filled events are all about promoting anti-bullying and are held once a month from May until September. These events are awesome - packed with lots of music, fun, and food! Some of the top celebrities, radio personalities and companies were on site, including: Kandi Burress, Gregg Street, Big Tigger, NAACP, WNBA Atlanta Dream, and HBCU Dance Corp (of course!) We've had more than a blast at these events!!
For May, the Honey Bees of Brown's Mill Recreation Center blew the crowd away. They taught stand routines to the kids and to a few adults. They kept the everyone moving! Celebrity DJ, Greg Street was honored to snap a shot with these hard-working young ladies.
In June, the MLK High School "Queens of Halftime" commanded the floor with approximately 30 dancers. The audience absolutely loved them! When they danced, everyone at the event stopped to watch these beautiful young ladies. Not only were the kids and parents engaged, but many ladies from the WNBA's Atlanta Dream Shooting Stars dance team also joined in to learn and perform some of their stand routines. The Queens are shown here with Mrs. Kandi Burress!
Westlake High School's "Lion's Mane Attraction" was our featured team for July. They rocked the stage with a fabulous field show performance and stand routines that made the crowd want to dance! These beautiful young ladies are shown here with celebrity DJ, Big Tigger.
The August Block Party is coming up on August 21 at the South Cobb Recreation Center and Boys & Girls Club (location pending) from 2pm - 8pm! Be there to see who will be featured next!
