My Dance Journey
I started with Chinese contemporary dance at 7, switched to Indian traditional at 9, and fell in love with salsa and bachata at the age of 13. Finally, I started teaching full time at 17.
At 20, I founded my dance company BLDC (2015) in Singapore, followed by franchises in Taiwan and Vietnam. These international teams continue to train and perform with me at festivals around the world. I also conduct live classes regularly in Singapore.
To date, I have conducted thousands of hours of classes and bootcamps in more than 70 events and congresses in 30 countries.
Since May 2020, www.brendaliewonline.com has trained over 5,000 students from more than 100 countries. Currently, we are over 1,000 active #BLOmembers all around the globe.
Officially, there are schools teaching my choreographies in Taiwan, Vietnam, Canada, UK, France, Norway, China, and California.
"Calling it incredible content is actually an understatement. I don't have the words for how much you give to your students 🙏🏻 You are an inspiration".
"Your classes have made so much difference in my dancing. I have learned a lot from you, your online platform is amazing. Hopefully I can learn in person from you soon ❤️".
"When I found Brenda, I was at a point where I was very demotivated because of my dancing. I kept practicing but nothing worked. Now I know the why's and the how's and I'm not stuck anymore".
She impresses with an incredible and imposing energy and presence on stage and in class, which might simply blow you away.
Her style is already unique and her teaching is very detailed. If you want to learn to dance like a true goddess, then you need to attend to her classes."
