ANTHONY BURRELL CENTER FOR DANCE ARRIVES IN ATLANTA

Ballet Master, Jennifer Davis and Owner, Anthony Burrell conduct auditions

Anthony Burrell Center for Dance has officially arrived in Atlanta, Georgia. Owned by creative director, choreographer, and actorAnthony Burrell, the local dance studio is here to make a prominent mark in Atlanta. With Anthony's unique blend of classical and commercial dance styles and extensive professional resume, he is certain to make a profound impact on the dance community in Atlanta. A distinct impact that has been long-awaited amongst technical dancers and much-needed to diversify the local dance cultural here in Atlanta. It's time for a profound change within the dance community, and we eagerly embrace the change with extended arms.

Recently, Anthony Burrell Center for Dance held auditions for their promising dance companies (pre-professional, senior, and junior companies) and local dancers in Atlanta showed up and showed out. Close to a hundred talented dancers auditioned for the future company. Trained local dancers ages 8 and up took a chance to audition for the pioneering company. Not knowing what to rightfully expect, it's refreshing to genuinely see local dancers come out to the auditions. Cheers to all the dancers who took a mighty leap in being a part of something totally new and up-and-coming in Atlanta. For any experienced dancers who unfortunately missed the auditionsno worries. A second audition will be held this Sunday, September 30th. Follow the direct link for more information. 

ATL Dance Source looks forward to simply witnessing the continual growth of Anthony Burrell Center for Dance. It's no doubt in our minds that the pioneering company will positively have a profound impact on the Atlanta dance community. Here's to a brilliant future ahead!

OKWAE A. MILLER AND ARTISTS UNVEIL SOMETHING AMAZING

the g[R]ay boi premiere, Dancer | Benjamin Stevenson

Last Friday we attended the premiere of Okwae A. Miller and Artists presentation of the long-awaited the g[R]ay boi and we were absolutely blown away. Art lovers from all over Atlanta gathered together at The B Complex to see what Okawe A. Miller would unveil to the community. What he unveiled was something out of the norm, fresh, and needed in the dance community. Okwae's choreographic movement is uncomfortable yet appealing to the eye and at the same time so refreshing because it's something like no other. The dancing artists Lyrric Cosby-Jackson, Benjamin Stevenson, and Zachary Orr did an absolutely amazing job. They embodied the narrative and created words with their movement that was not only expressed outwardly but felt inwardly. All in all, we couldn't be more moved by the g[R]ay boi. Thank you Okwae and Artists for sharing this wonderful work with the Atlanta dance community. ATL Dance Source looks forward to all the amazing works you have in store for the future. Congratulations!
