Dynamics Start The Season With A Bang at Starbound National Talent Competition
Premiere Dance Dynamics Company Dancers started their season on a high note at Starbound National Talent Competition in Bridgewater, NJ. The Dynamics will be attending 4 more regional competitions in the tristate area later in the season.
After competing for three days at Starbound, the company brought home countless Elite Golds and Judges Awards, had 48 dances that placed in the top 10 overalls, and received 2 NYDE Dance Scholarships to Kayla Faynor with No Good At All, choreographed by Miss Lisa Burton and Catherine Flynn with Something From Nothing, choreographed by Miss Lisa Burton. There were 9 First Place Overall winning dances that went to choreographers: Michelle Cunningham, Joseph Tudor, Allie Nagy, Lisa Burton, Lea Sargiotto, Mikayla Ahart, Mia Jaderlund, and Rachel Pieroni. They won 4 Regional Titles: Little Miss Starbound-Kennedy Anderson with Ashes, choreographed by Miss Rachel Pieroni; Junior Miss Starbound-Madeleine Cihon with The Rose, choreographed by Miss Lisa Burton; Teen Miss Starbound-Addison Yesalonis with For The Next One, choreographed by Miss Lea Sargiotto; Miss Starbound-Kayla Faynor with No Good At All, choreographed by Miss Lisa Burton. Their Dance Composition class, made up of six high school juniors-Catherine Flynn, Kristi Liivak, Demi Rooyakkers, Rachel Simroth, Anya Mirmajlesi, and Rebecca Urm-choreographed their own routine this season, and took home the Top Choreography Award.
The Dynamics Company is made up of over 120 skillful dancers competing in 124 beautifully choreographed routines this season. Michelle Cunningham, Studio Director said, “This year we wanted to take the studio to a whole new level. Being in business for almost 35 years in Hillsborough, we’ve gone through a lot of transitions as the dance world changes. With that being said, this year we decided to explore more with concepts and staging in order to bring our ideas to life. That coupled with digging deeper in technique classes and helping all of the dancers understand how to explore movement out of their comfort zone, is what helped us get to where we were at this past weekend. Proud is an understatement for what we accomplished. Premiere Dance will always strive to deliver an exceptional experience for all of our dancers from youngest to oldest.”
The Dynamics dancers will be attending Nationals at Starbound National Talent Competition at Harrah’s in Atlantic City, NJ in July. They are hoping to continue their winning streak and continue to be one of Starbound’s Top 10 studios in the Nation.
