Beyond Fame

After she joined The Dancing Dolls, she became the captain of the new girls. She also quickly adapted to the intense style of her new group to earn a spot on the team’s revered battle squad.
  • After appearing on the dance reality show ‘Bring It!’, Sunjai put her new found fame to good use by securing full dance scholarship to DeSales University. She earned the scholarship during an audition that was arranged by the producers of the show, Pilgrim Studios. Sunjai, who has been performing majorette and hip-hop dance since she was a child, got exposed to new dance forms of the North, like ballet and modern. She immediately fell in love with modern dance, but found it challenging to learn the terms and movements for ballet. However, she took introductory dance classes to get herself accustomed to the fast-paced dance style. She impressed her friends with her majorette moves, while learned the Latin-inspired music of Jersey Club from them, and also performed a special number at the UniverSoul Circus in Philadelphia showcasing the dichotomy of Northern and Southern dancing styles.
