MEET THE STAFF
Demetria Joyce Bailey (Arts & Crafts) Demetria Joyce Bailey is an entertainer. Currently a member of “Jive Jump & Wail” and leading her own band “Demetria & The Fellas”. She is a working union member of Theatre, Television and Film. She has been working periodically with the Artrageous program at BRT since its inception and has a broad background in working with children in the Arts. A few programs; Children’s Classics Theatre in which a musical play is written from an established children’s book and taken to the elementary schools in South Jersey area. Each week, the children were taught everything from audition to performance. People’s Light & Theatre Company where Demetria taught Acting to 8-10 year olds in their winter and spring programs.
Mark Boston and Shanika Boston (Hip Hop Dance) Mark and Shanika Boston have been paired to dance. For the past 12+ years, they have spent countless hours choreographing for stage plays, TV shows, dance competitions, all while pursuing their own dance careers. Their own passion has lead them to tv shows, award shows, music videos and TV commercials but nothing as rewarding as leading weekly classes at our dance company (I Am Phresh Dance Academy), which offers classes to hundreds of student per year. Working with students from all ages has afforded them the opportunity to mentor dancers in the area of discipline, sportsmanship, and the art of performance is their passion. It has also been a pleasure to witness both of their youth and adult dance companies to place 1st in multiple World of Dance, Dance Competitions theater shows (Matilda, The King and I etc…), world tours (Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber etc…) and much more. Dance for them has become a way that they as a team can be conduits for change and impact the lives of the creatives in a way that shifts them to pursue unspeakable dreams and their passions in life.
