DV8 Dance Academy (formally Virginia Hip Hop Academy). Is Ranked #1 IN THE NATION in competitive all-star hip hop dance in the Tiny. Mini, Youth & Open Age Divisions. DV8 Dance Academy was started to help kids in the Northern Virginia area have a place to receive positive guidance and encouragement from adults as well as their peers. This positivity has paid off in many ways. Members of DV8 Dance Academy are not allowed to practice if they have a GPA below 2.0 and are not allowed to compete or perform if there GPA is below a 2.5. The goal is to teach the kids that you can have all the talent in the world but if you don’t have the education behind it you will always be left behind. We have been featured on Showtime at the Apollo, BET, Fox 5, Paula Abduls: Live to Dance and even had a clip shown on the OPRAH WINFREY SHOW. With all that being done we have so much more that we will accomplish. The word Deviate means “to depart from the accepted norm or standard” and that is how the members of DV8 are taught to live there lives.
