Creation of Brothers In Arms (BIA) Dance Crew

One night in the year 2016, around our Brother boy Sam’s dinning table whilst eating, I Phillip came up with an idea that we should make a dance crew called Brothers In Arms.

We are a small group of friends and we all have some sort of dance background training. We then had a chat amonst ourselves then we all agreed to form the BIA crew, got hyped and started yelling and Ging each other up as we do. We all had no clue what the future had in store for us but deep down i had a feeling we were gona smash it!

We then started rehearsing in Brothers boy Sam’s driveway then moved to my garage then finally a small studio in Alphington Victoria.

In 2016 we mainly focused on rehearsing and getting the crew tight. When 2017 came we started off real slow in getting gigs as obvious as no one knew us and we we’re just getting onto the market. Then the year 2018 came into play and we shot off like shooting star, we have only performed throughout Mebourne Victoria but people have seen or heard of us in such little time ex. Bumped into a few people from Canberra, Nsw, Qld & most of all Victoria saying β€˜Hey!! i have heard of you guys from back home’’ and that already says a lot! in the small amount of time we have actually been together.
