I conduct a plethora of dance concept videos by bringing dancers from different neighborhoods of Chicago/Illinois together. This is all non profit for both my dancers and I, but the purpose for me is to give back to the underrated dancers of our community who have not been afforded the best opportunities within the dance industry. I solely use my income to provide rehearsal space, filming on our production days, space for our production days, outfits, and the platform to expose our hard work. All of the dances we perform are created by me and I revolve each piece around the strength of a dancer because my intent it to not exude greediness for my success, but to build success with others and to encourage their motivation and confidence within themselves for the competitive industry. Because we don't build profit from this, we try our best to extend ideas through one another of what may be an eye catching dance theme for the video. We base those ideas off of our primary audience's demand...
I conduct a plethora of dance concept videos by bringing dancers from different neighborhoods of Chicago/Illinois together.

I solely use my income to provide rehearsal space, filming on our production days, space for our production days, outfits, and the platform to expose our hard work. All of the dances we perform are created by me and I revolve each piece around the strength of a dancer because my intent it to not exude greediness for my success, but to build success with others and to encourage their motivation and confidence within themselves for the competitive industry. Because we don't build profit from this, we try our best to extend ideas through one another of what may be an eye catching dance theme for the video. We base those ideas off of our primary audience's demand--popularity of song choice at the time, the season, maybe a specific holiday, and lastly, things we want to see grow within ourselves. Aside of the dance category of RTB, I indulge in my dance clothing line, RyKomforts, and upcoming cosmetics line and services, RyKiss, in order to accumulate income for the main focus of RTB which is dance, entertainment, and influential impact. Because I have other interests in fashion and beauty I combined a way to associate that with RTB, which also brings more traffic to my social media pages, giving be a better access to publicity because all sorts of audiences are interested. The effort put into my dance concept videos is what made RTB what it is today. I contact dancers through social media and ask them if they would like to be apart of my concept video and people commit to this without asking for payment. We are able to complete this production typically after 2 months of rehearsal being that practices can only be held on weekends. I drive to Chicago on weekends to accommodate the dancers and back to Champaign before classes start during the week. I take on this task no matter how difficult it gets living in between 2 places, but the purpose of RTB grew from wanting to improve the Chicago dance community.
