Buck Out Cleveland

501(c)3 Nonprofit Dance Company

Our mission is to utilize dance to successfully bridge the gap between Northeast Ohio youth and higher education at Historically Black Colleges & Universities, while increasing the awareness of obtainable dance careers.

What We Do

Technical Dance Training

We house dance companies in which dancers train daily in various genres of dance as well as weekly drop-in classes.



We utilize our connection to community organizations to connect our dancers to resources & tools needed for post-secondary education.



Dancers receive an exclusive look at what it takes to successfully audition for the dance organization of their choice.

Financial Assistance

Through fundraisers and scholarships we meet our families at the point of their needs, reducing the barriers to high-quality dance education.

City-Wide Dance Team Showcase

Our showcase brings together dancers who would not otherwise have the opportunity to display their talents in their community.



We offer seminars, workshops, and mentor-mentee pairings as a way of increasing professionalism, maturity, and personal growth amongst our dancers. 


"BOC has helped Reality Check Dance Team in so many ways. We were only used to Hip-Hop choreography, but after working with BOC we were able to explore the world of majorette as it pertains to the HBCU dance style. BOC helped build confidence in our girls and the instructors were experienced and professional."
