The Virtual Reality Dance Academy was created by DustBunny (aka Dusty) on New Years of 2022! Dusty has been teaching dance classes in VRChat since December of 2019. She has 18 years of dance experience and has been a dance teacher (in real life) for 11 years!
Dusty originally started teaching belly dance classes in VR but now teaches a variety of dance styles! Dusty is the first known VRChat dance instructor to ever teach Ballroom, Bellydance, Bollywood and even Hawaiian Hula!
DustBunny will be featured in an upcoming documentary called "We Met in Virtrual Reality" that is premiering at Sundance Film Festival in January 2022.
Dusty enjoys sharing her love of dance with others and finds VR technology fascinating! Her VR classes have been steadily growing over the past few years and it has always been her biggest dream to open her own dance studio.
So she finally made her dream into a "virtual" reality and started The Virtual Reality Dance Academy, in hopes to continue teaching and inspiring others to dance in not only the virtual world but also the real world!
