Fabulous Fall!

Jessa and Brooke won Full Year Scholarships at the Shock Convention in PGH. Next up was NUVO – this amazing convention was optional for Team ALDC but, our dancers certainly stood out in a big way when it came time to award the Scholarships; Sarah was selected as the Mini Break Out Artist R-up, Brooke, Haley, Jessa, and Jessica were Stand Out Scholarship Recipients, and Kylie was awarded the Die Hard Dancer Scholarship. In addition, members of the ALDC performed for Christmas Shoppers at the Mall, Took A Master Class from our Alum, Mr. John Michael Fiumara – who just finished the National Tour of Broadway’s Matlida, and Lucy Lokay shot a commercial!  Sleigh bells ring, are you listening to Mack Z’s new single?

Dear Miss Abby

I loved hearing the whole personal story about you & ALDC. You are an inspiring teacher whom I would love learn more from. Could you please put me on your email list for teachers so I can attend any workshops you may offer when you return to Australia.

Congratulations to you and your beautiful ALDC girls for giving my daughter (and myself) an incredible experience that will inspire her to keep striving for excellence.

All the very best

Jane Keen



Hi Bec

I would just like to thank yourself, Abby, the girls, crew and all that worked tirelessly to make the Ultimate Dancer comp happen. Josh has had the most amazing experience. He has gained so much from being a part of this competition and I appreciate the effort that goes into its production. Josh may not have been an Ulitmate winner, but he has most certainly come away with many wins! He has won friendships, understand of the commercial world and gained self confidence.
Please pass on our thanks to all and let them know that Josh is truly grateful for the experience!
Take care
