Bey Captain - Melbourne

Rhys Boyonce Bey Dance

I’m Dance Captain Rhys, aka Boy-once, and have been performing all my life. I was born dancing into my mother's arms from the very start. I studied musical theatre and have graced the stage of many a theatre in New Zealand and Australia.


I moved to Melbourne Australia almost 5 years ago and started dancing as a student at Bey Dance in January 2014. Now I am a part of the amazing Bey Dance team as a Dance Captain and am so passionate about empowering people as in the way I was when I started.

My favourite Bey Dance number is Crazy in Love and it was the very first dance I learned as a Bey Dance student.

I can be found regularly booty poppin' wherever a booty pop is needed, in class, on the dance floor, around the house, in the supermarket... You name it!
