Headliner Regional High Score, Teen Division

Congratulations to Brianna Roland for winning Headliner’s Springfield Regional competition, Teen Division!

This routine features Prince’s When Doves Cry, which had a couple of audio glitches until I fixed it for her a few weeks ago.

Headliners has uploaded this routine to YouTube for your viewing pleasure:

If you have less-than-perfect music that needs fixing before Nationals, let me know!

Pixie Hollow unveiled

After months of rehearsal, Pixie Hollow, a dance routine choreographed by Lesley Lambert featuring a music creation of mine has finally premiered at competition. Pixie Hollow started with a concept by Lesley for a character dance centered around the theme of Tinkerbell from Peter Pan. She then searched out several songs on the theme, including Fly To Your Heart and Magic by Selena Gomez and Never Never Land by Jane Monheit, which I mixed along with other music and audio elements to form the soundtrack for the piece.

Here’s the music for Pixie Hollow, along with a couple of glimpses of the costumes backstage:

Pixie Hollow has been performed at three regional competitions to date: Headliners in Lowell MA, Star Systems in Worcester MA, and Onstage New York in Springfield MA. Each performance was great, and the dancers continue to improve and refine their techniques. At its premier at Headliners, it won a High Silver and was invited to go on to the US Dance Team Finals at their Nationals; at Star Systems it won a High Gold; and at Onstage New York it won a Gold and 6th place overall in its age group. Not bad for a group of 8-11 year olds!

If you’d like to hear another Squirrel Trench Remix, check out my remix of Incubus’ Drive. If you’re interested in a having a custom remix created for your studio or your dancers, feel free to contact me; I’d love to create something just as unique for you!

World Premier of Pixie Hollow

The world premier of my song remix titled Pixie Hollow will happen tomorrow afternoon at Lowell Auditorium at the Headliners Regional Competition. Lesley Lambert, Assistant Director at nationally recognized dance studio, is leading her group of mini’s in a character dance. The Pixie Hollow medley features several parts, including spoken voice, light & airy synthesizers, and a couple of rocking Selena Gomez tracks. The effect should be magical! I’m extremely excited to see this debut tomorrow.
