Niya has been at Backstage Dance Connection since they opened their doors in 2012. Over the course of her dance and tumbling career, Niya competed at many Regional and National dance competitions, as well as Allstarz Cheer competitions.

She won a National title in 2017 as a member of BDC’s Lyrical Team. Niya has always shown great leadership qualities while she was a member on the VIP Competition Teams, which earned her a permanent teacher position at BDC. She has attended numerous dance and instructor workshops, even in New York City, and still continues her education today.

She also travels throughout the community teaching to all ages in hopes of spreading the joy of dance and tumbling. Niya’s true love is Poms and she begins her second year as the VIP Poms Team coach.
