Dance Olympus Convention 2006 (New York City)

Every year the Dance Olympus Summer Tour has an audition to find young dancers for next year’s tour. Out of the 900 applicants from all of the U.S.A. 10-20 “VIPs” are chosen to study routines with famous choreographers and to perform them on US tour.

To become a “VIP” the dancers needs to impress in all styles. The audition includes Ballet Barre, Center, Jazz Combination, Modern/Contemporary and obviously Tap. We are happy that Maria Gabler was amongst the two VIPs chosen from 80 applications there. And all of that after only 1 year of tap classes at the Broadway Connection!

Not enough! Michaela Pircher won the “Audition Scholarship Award“. As part of the convention there are audition classes for Juniors and Seniors. In this class the young dancers learn what’s important for auditions and get useful tips. The teacher splits the participants in groups and has them perform previously taught routines in an “audition”. After each audition dancers are eliminated until there are only 8 left per age group. These 16 dancers then perform at the recital and 4 of each age group receive a scholarship of about $ 210. Congratulation Michaela!

Broadway Connection Competition Team, Austrian Open 2006

The Austrian Open 2006 was the so far largest Musical and Showdance Championship in Austria. Around 1,300 participants from all states came to Oberpullendorf (Burgenland) on the weekend of March 24-26, 2006 to compete for the National Championship Titles.

The students of the Broadway Connection celebrated another sensational success: 5 Gold, 9 Silver, 6 Bronze and 2 Special Jury Awards were won by our kids & youth!

Best Choreography for KrisTina Decker with “The Mask – How it Began”, AO2006

In addition, the Broadway Connection director and choreographer KrisTina Decker received the second time in a row (a first in the competition history) the special award as “Best Choreographer“! The judges loved the number “The Mask – How It Began” so much, that she also received the special award for the Highest Points in the Amateur Class!

This is the exceptional result of the Viennese Dance Studio Broadway Connection at the Austrian Open 2006 for Musical and Showdance.

I am happy about our success“, says KrisTina Decker. “One sees that all the sweat and hard training was worth it! I am really proud for my students!

The medal score of the Broadway Connection confirms KrisTina Decker’s approach at the dance education for youth: Professionals share their knowledge, custom-made training for the students and manageable class size. Goal of the school is to offer – in addition to a broad range of dance styles – acting, singing and acrobatic. With that “Vienna’s First Show School” provides a solid foundation for a professional stage career.

The best dances of the Austrian Open qualified for the “EUROPEAN OPEN”. They will be held in Baden bei Wien from April 27-30, 2006. The European Open are the qualifyer for the “US OPEN” in America. The Broadway Connection won a couple of Gold medals last year.

Akida

Akida

Poster: Akida

After last year’s great success with Cindy’s Dream, this year the Broadway Company presents their brand new musical “AKIDA“: the main character Akida lives in an unknown world inhabited by mysterious creatures. When she is by chance catapulted into our dimension, her adventures start …

Sorak, the demon king of the country of A’Dair, has left his dimension and went to New York to convert the humans to demons. Akida, the best demon huntress of A’Dair is on his heels. In New York she meets the 18 year old Harper Doyle. As Akida does not know the customs of this world, Harper has to help her regularly to avoid being discovered (while e.g. hunting for food in the Central Park). Together with Harper and his friends, Akida wants to defeat the demon king. But before they need to learn to fight. Easier said than done …

Will our world be dominated by demons? Or will Akida succeed with the help of her young friend?
