does it again! is all about the whole experience! These dancers work so hard not only in dance but their studies as well. Our high school students are able to manage 3.7-4.0 GPA’s while still performing with Designed to Dance. Mrs. Davis continues to stress the importance of education to our children by exposing them early to the expectations of what is needed for them to get into the University of their choice. The students had to complete a scavenger hunt at the Battle of the Bands College Fair by going around to the different university tables and ask important questions about their school in order to give the dancer an idea of what they need to work towards to get accepted into that university. Check out our article in the

Thank you so much for the you continue to show our children on a daily basis. You are not only their dance director but someone they look to for guidance and support. It takes a village and I am so blessed our village includes you! .o.a.t.

Long Post alert !

So today I had the honor of taking 2 of my seniors to the Black college expo at NRG . It was nothing but an amazing experience from top to bottom . The Lord was with us and showed his favor on our two D2D ladies .

My dancers are getting older and beginning to stay until the completion of their high school careers.
I promised them if they stay and finish our program they would receive a book voucher scholarship of a $1000 from D2D.

My students work so hard and In most cases have to sacrifice school activities , clubs , dance teams , etc . Some people even told them that our studio schedule takes up too much time and they need to spend it more on their studies or joining organizations that would look good on their application for school.

Im so thankful the dancers stayed focused and chose to commit to what they love all while keeping 3.0 and above GPA scores while being at class/practice multiple times a week .

I teach my dancers that they don’t have to pause anything to do what they love because when they get to college they will have to know how to balance being school assignments as well as things like band , dance , sororities , etc. Its all about multitasking and time management . If Dancing is their dream I’m definitely going to show them how to do both .

Today , Jada Celestine & Raven both were accepted to 11 HBCU’s on the spot because of THEIR hard work . Their GPA’s & SAT scores earned them a scholarship and immediate acceptance as well as granted out of state waivers so they are not forced to go to school in state if they didn’t have the funds to go to theid school of choice .

I FaceTimed their parents Nikki Thibeaux & Deborah Manning and watched their tears flow with joy . I am so thankful because they are hardworking parents who just want the best for their babies . I’m honored they allow me to be there for their kids to reinforce the standard THEY have already set for them .

I had my other dancers with me who are in lower grades who watched and cheered on the seniors to victory and I looked them in the eyes and said just wait Mrs Davis going to do the same thing for each and every one of you .

Its more than just dance at D2D. I promise to have my dancers back “From the Ballet Barre to the Bachelors Degree”.

Proud is an understatement . The devil tried to discourage me from my purpose .. But God . I got to keep pushing for my babies .

Shout out to the girls winning $50 each for having the most acceptances on the spot ! Thanks Trae the Truth.

Raven received an additional scholarship for telling her story of her mom being a single parent when they asked for a volunteer from the audience .

Thank you to my sister Vernisha Savoy for tag teamming with me to help our girls out today with the recruiters . HBCU’s are in our blood .

Shelia Jackson Lee said it best . She said “your dance director knows what the assignment is . Is not just about dance it’s about reaching back and helping one another with their future.”

With a total from both fairs : 20 college acceptances under their belt without spending a dime out of their money my 2 young ladies can now rest and finish senior year strong with the luxury of picking where they want to go and know it’s taken cared of . Won’t He do it !!

Today was an awesome day !

D2D understood the assignment today !

Luv to see it ! 😍😍😍😍


It’s an honor to be selected to perform for our city at this outstanding event ! Congrats D2D!
