CONGRATULATIONS to these crazy talented kids that attended ADCIBC this past wknd. We are super proud of them and the work they did all year and especially this past wknd! All 7 soloists made the final round and Top 7 in their age category as well as many Gold and Silver placements and top awards! We also had 3 pas de deuxs, 2 trios, and 2 ensembles that were brilliant! The other dancers from all over the world were so superbly talented and kind; we had a wonderful time-congrats to all/thank you for a great week of dancing and camaraderie! We also want to thank our INCREDIBLE staff that make these kids what they are along with their incredibly supportive parents! Thank you to our incredible ballet master Maxim Tchernychev, our insanely talented Contemporary Director and Resident Choreographer Brian Stevens, our Artist in Residence (and my partner for the trip!) Jason Ambrose , our seamstress Lisa Joy, PT Julia Buckelew (BravoPhysio), ballroom teacher Adrienne Healy, and stretch coach Ella Rasin (Rhythmic Ribbon of Texas), our photographer Rhi Lee and of course Prodigy Dance PAC for allowing us studio rentals so that we have a home!!
