Over the weekend, twelve A2D Company Dancers and three A2D instructors traveled to the Big Apple to take part in one of the dance world’s oldest and most prestigious dance conventions: Tremaine.  The dancers and their parents traveled together for their two day workshop experience with many dancers & parents also taking in Broadway, enjoying The Lion King before beginning their hard work.

On Saturday morning, the dancers were split into their respective age groups:  Juniors, Teens or Seniors. Dancers and teachers took instruction from Tremaine’s impressive group of teachers. Most styles of dance were represented during the weekend for all three groups, including Ballet, Jazz, Street, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Lyrical. If you asked each dancer who their favorite instructor was, each one would come up with a different answer!

The students also took part in scholarship auditions during the weekend. Three of A2D’s junior dancers made the finals in the auditions, with Gabrielle Katz earning a one year Tremaine Scholarship! Congratulations, Gabrielle! All of our dancers represented A2D with poise, great technique and ability during the weekend. Our senior dancers were praised by judges regarding their impressiveness at their respective auditions.

A2D teachers and parents have found Tremaine Founder and Director, Joe Tremaine, to be a very approachable and generous man, who continues to share his love of dance and experience in the industry by holding forums with studio owners and dance parents. Tremaine was recently featured in Dance Studio Life Magazine – a definite must read!

The convention was a wonderful weekend for the dancers to bond as friends and teammates outside of the studio. We look forward to many more conventions in weeks and months ahead!
