Edge Experiences Nuvo!
Edge Company dancers attend the Nuvo Convention!
On April 21-23, the Edge Company dancers attended the Nuvo Dance Convention in Meadowlands, NJ. This exhilarating weekend reminded our students that dance is not just about performing, it's also about learning and expanding your repertoire.
Now in its tenth year, Nuvo conventions take place across the country, bringing together some of the best choreographers in the business to teach the next generation of young dancers. Over the course of two days all of our team members took a dozen different master classes in contemporary, hiphop, ballet, jazz, tap and lyrical. The teachers included Travis Wall, Stacey Tooki, Ivan Koumaev, Chantel Aguirre, Mark Meismer and Anthony Morigerato -- a who's who of exciting choreographers!
At the start of the weekend, some of our teen and senior soloists took part in the competition hosted by Nuvo, delivering standout performances. All of our students also had the opportunity to take part in the Nuvo Breakout Artist Scholarship Audition. In the session the dancers got a taste of a full audition experience, learning how to stand out in a crowd and do your best, while performing jazz and ballet combos for the judges.
This was an especially exciting and inspiring weekend for our newest team members. Nuvo introduced them to a variety of well-known choreographers, and gave them a glimpse of what it means to be a part of the wonderful world of dance.
We are proud to announce that four of our dancers won special recognition at Nuvo:
Roxy Rosenberg - Standout Award for Jazz
Zach Saver - Standout Award for Hiphop
Kayla Mruk - Standout Award for Contemporary
Jonathan Golden - Senior Breakout Artist Scholarship Award winner, and 9th place overall in the senior solo competition
