Director Daryl Blakely started the step team three years ago to help the boys grow.

"Success is a journey, not a destination," Blakely told 11Alive's Jennifer Leslie. "We're enjoying the ride."

"They have put us in the best hotel, given us the best vehicles with a driver, VIP status with all backstage and banquet passes, and a private tour of the White House!" Blakely posted on Facebook. "Never stop dreaming!"

Here's a sneak peek at their routine:
