Elite's 2008 Summer Intensive

This year Josh and Des gathered together some of the best talent in the country to provide a meaningful summer intensive workshop for our students. They covered modern dance, hip-hop, ballet, Latin, and tumbling. The fun part for me is that I got to be the hostess to these talented young men and women. I went every day to drop instructors off and stayed to watch. The wonderful thing was watching them work with our kids and how are kids absorbed everything they were taught.

When Josh danced in New Orleans his roommate
was J. R. Kirchner. JR married Diana Stetsura a
Russian ballerina. She has
gifted us with her
instruction for 2 years and
the kids love her. Diana is prima ballerina with Milwaukee Ballet Company.


The pic above is of JR and Diana. JR works for UBS and spends his time making investments for his clients. JR still dances on a part time basis especially around Nutcracker Season. JR has been a part of our family for years and now we get to add Diana in the group! The picture on the right is Al Blackstone from New York and Diana with the senior group. Al is originally from a family of dancers from New Jersey. He taught Broadway dance to a group of very receptive students!!

This is a pic of Diana, Al, Des and Joshua mugging for the camera.



The picture on the right is of Adrenaline Dance Company's own Ryan Warren. His speciality is Hip-Hop. He spent time with Elite's Jazmyn Harmon to give her private instruction and work on her solo. Without a doubt Jaz is the best in Lafayette and we have to go out of state to find someone advanced enough to instruct her.


What can I say about Tennessee's Hip -Hop phenom Keith Fitzpatrick except that he is a wonderful house guest, a gifted teacher and an all around great guy. Keith is with Dancer's Rock and seems impressed with our crew.


The pic on the left is our first week's teachers. From left to right is Elite's tumbling instructor,Seth Aymond( Seth is a Cheerleader with UL), Dee Aubrey- Latin/Salsa instructor, Keith Fitzpatrick, Joshua and in their arms is Jessica Touchet- with Smuin Ballet Co. in San Francisco. Jessica is also an old dance mate of Joshua's.


Here is Desiree Doucet, Co-owner of Elite and her most understanding of husbands, Patrick.


On the right is a picture of Walter Hull from Houston, Texas. He is the founder of Urban Souls Dance Company and a superb Modern dancer. The girls had him last and came from the room sweating. He worked them hard but they learned so much!! Thanks Walter!!!







Keith and the juniors.


Jessica Touchet and the seniors on the right.



And when all was said and done, their feet were burning but their spirits were high. They all said that it was the best intensive yet.
