RFW hosts THRIVE instructors for workshop
Company dancers from Rhonda's FooteWorks had the unique opportunity to take classes the weekend of October 24th with THRIVE instructors Jamie Gallo and Alex "Larkin" Symanietz.
The dancers took class in hip hop and contemporary dance styles with these incredibly talented performers and instructors. Jamie Gallo hails from Plymouth, Michigan where she grew up dancing. She has won many overall high schore titles at the National level. She has studied on scholarship with many prestigous dance organizations. At age 18, Jamie moved to New Jersey and now attends Ramapo College and instructs at Robin Horneff's Performing Arts Center. She also travels teaching for the Larkins and THRIVE.
Alex "Larkin" Symanietz grew up in the twin cities of Minnesota where he took dance from the famed Larkin family (which he is a member of!). Alex has been in commercials for Target, Best Buy, Oscar Meyer and Paul Mitchell. He currently goes to Ramapo College in New Jersey and instructs for the Larkin family and is on the THRIVE circuit tour. After receiving his degree, Alex plans to pursue a career in dance and entertainment in L.A.
The dancers from Rhonda's FooteWorks worked hard for the two days and left the studio inspired to work even harder in the future.
