Last weekend, six A2D Company Dancers took part in the Excel In Motion Convention held in Lancaster, PA. The two-day workshop featured instruction by stars of the FOX Television show So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD).
Teachers included SYTYCD All Stars tWitch, Allison Holker and Kathryn McCormick, Season 4 winner Joshua Allen, Top Female Dancer Season 4 Katee Shean, Season 7 Top Male Dancer Kent Boyd and finalist Alex Wong. Guest staff on hand in Lancaster included jazz instructors Courtney Ortiz and Dedrick Lee Anthony, and Hip Hop dancers Casie Goshow and Brian Henninger.
Many of the A2D dancers at Excel in Motion were just coming off their convention experience the weekend prior in New York City at Tremaine. The students found Excel to be very exciting – with challenging combinations and a friendly atmosphere.
Saturday evening featured a choreographer’s show, with each of the star instructors performing along with “Elite Dancer” assistants. A2D Company Dancers Jake Howie and Alexia Lindsay were picked out of their first class of the day by Hip Hop instructor tWitch, and asked to perform in the choreographer’s showcase! Jake and Alexia had a great time rehearsing tWitch’s choreography and getting to shine in front of the crowd.
With the fantastic time had by A2D dancers and parents at Excel In Motion, this will be a convention placed on our schedule year after year!
