The History of
PopStar Booty Camp

PopStar Booty Camp was created to give everyone the ability to learn an entire music video dance routine and then perform it in costume at a nightclub. Each class is geared towards all levels of dancers - we even use a music-slowing app in class so that everyone learns the steps. The feeling in each class is casual and friendly - everyone is welcome with no judgment.


There’s nothing like it in the Bay Area - come and see why SF Magazine voted us “BEST DANCE CLASS IN SAN FRANCISCO”.

Carol Johnstone

Founder of Flashmob Bay Area and PopStar Booty Camp

Carol has been deeply involved in the popstar dance world since 2009 when she helped form a SF-based flashmob dance group called BAY AREA FLASH MOB.


Simultaneously, through serendipity and good fortune, she managed the (then) unknown French hip hop dancers, “Les Twins”. She helped Les Twins realize their true potential as lead performers for Cirque Du Soleil and eventually, Beyonce’s featured dancers.


Realizing that everyone loves to dance to music video choreography from their favorite popstar tunes, Carol started PopStar Booty Camp in 2014 and has been spreading the dance love ever since.
