Who are we?

BusyBodies Dance Company, Incorporated was founded in March 2015 by Krissy "Coach Kris" Byas.  Our dancers are 2-17 years old.  We offer beginner acro, hip hop, parade, ballet, technique, tap, and African dance lessons.  We've been featured in Holla Cheer and Dance Magazine (Fall 2015 and September 2018 issues). 

BusyBodies’ goal is to provide quality dance instruction in a disciplined environment, encouraging artistic grace and strong technique.  We aspire to bring out the best in each student who comes through our door!

BusyBodies dancers perform in Mardi Gras and other holiday parades in and out of the city of New Orleans, LA.  We also perform at sporting events, festivals, and other events.  Some of our dancers also compete in majorette competitions.  

BusyBodies Dance Company hosts an annual dance recital and an annual showcase.   Our dancers participate in community service projects, such as performing at charity events and large fundraisers and feeding less fortunate families on Thanksgiving.

BusyBodies offers mentoring through dance.  Through dance, our young ladies strengthen self-esteem, learn life lessons, establish positive body images, learn team-building skills, and build healthy peer relationships.  Through dance, our young ladies learn leadership skills, improve or maintain academic success, and learn how to problem solve. 

Whether it's a halftime field show, Mardi Gras parade, competition, dance recital... BusyBodies Dance Company is guaranteed to surpass your expectations.
