Winter Park Dance Studio Facilitates Cecchetti Based Training for Dancers

Tags : 

Winter Park, FL— The act of movement out of passion, groove, or just an inexplicable feeling, has allowed humans to express the deepest and strangest nooks of the soul fluidly. It is a beautiful, detailed act that is often diminished as an art when it is taught in a structured environment. Dancers Edge Dance School brings creativity back into the learning process and values the unique challenge each dancer’s education can be. They believe that children are filled with potential and want to provide the best for them as young dancers. Parents that have a young one that is reluctant to try something new, or already dances happily across the living room should seek the caring environment that Dancer’s Edge specializes in.

This company has many different available dance classes like hip-hop, jazz, flamenco, lyrical, tap, pre-ballet, ballet and pointe. Their family friendly pricing is sure to bring a smile to parents hoping to give the gift of dance to their little loved ones. Their belief that technique, structure, and precision are a priority to teach young dancers and encourage further exploration helps heighten their practice from just a mere dance school. Their current choice of curriculum supports these beliefs. This studio uniquely employs the use of Enrico Cecchetti inspired training brings the genius of one of the most famous ballet masters of the early 1900’s right onto the dance floor. This dance legend’s legacy spread like wildfire with the popular rising of the company Ballet Russes. His council was founded a little after his original dance material and teachings were passed onto the Michigan Dance Masters back in 1939. This curriculum is proven to bring any young dancer closer to their dreams and goals than they have ever imagined.

Neither too slow or too advanced, this curriculum moves at an appropriate pace for young learners. Parents can rest easy knowing their children are in a positive environment and many helping hands. This dance studio employs only the most attentive staff members who share their mission and passion for teaching dance. They have only confidence in the success of the Cecchetti curriculums and many dancers that have experienced other studios, prefer this method over the latter. Sophia, a young dancer who began at another studio says she has found her home at Dancer’s Edge, “I didn’t always look forward to going to class or practice but this dance school feels right, everyone here is caring.” This studio’s dedication to greatness and growth is what sets them far apart from other schools.

About Rickey Medlocke
Rickey Medlocke formed the band BLACKFOOT when he was in his late teens. Medlocke was the lead vocalist and front man and kept the band going releasing over 10 hard rock albums. During a brief time in 1971 Rickey left BLACKFOOT to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd as their drummer until 1973.  He then reformed BLACKFOOT where he remained until the mid 1990’s.

In 1996 Rickey received a phone call from Gary Rossington inviting him to rejoin Lynyrd Skynyrd as lead guitarist and primary songwriter.  Medlocke continues to be a full time guitarist for Lynyrd Skynyrd touring and recording.  Medlocke is still heavily involved in BLACKFOOT.  He handpicked the next generation of musicians for the band where he mentors, producers and writes for the band.

Wedding and party DJ company Sound X Entertainment seeks to continue its success in 2017 after an award-winning year

Although weddings will probably always be the company’s bread and butter, Rose and many of her staff want to offer their services to corporations, organizations, schools, and others in need of DJ and event planning services.

Sound X Entertainment has also recently expanded into the in-house DJ market, forming relationships with several venues in the greater Toronto area.

How Platforms Will Disrupt a Future of Media and Entertainment

Tags : 

networkrevolution_logo_4c-1024x524

In a next article of a series, “The Network Revolution: Creating Value by Platforms, People and Technology,” authors Barry Libert, Megan Beck and Jerry (Yoram) Wind demeanour during how people and platforms are disrupting a media and party industries. Libert is CEO of OpenMatters and Beck is a arch insights officer. Wind is a Wharton selling professor and executive of Wharton’s SEI Center for Advanced Studies in Management. They also wrote a book called The Network Imperative: How to Survive and Grow in a Age of Digital Business Models. The authors would like to appreciate LiquidHub for sponsoring a investigate for this series.

Remember that decades-old open use proclamation seeking parents, “Do we know where your children are?” That ad could not have approaching that a answer one day would be this: They are somewhere uploading their favorite videos of themselves — or their cats — to YouTube, posting photos to Instagram and promulgation disintegrating messages on Snapchat.

For today’s amicable and video networks, a tellurian network — we and me — is changing a whole business models of publishers, TV and radio broadcasters and even wire TV companies as good as calm providers in entertainment, news and sports. The genuine question, then, is not possibly broadcasters, advertisers and calm providers will be disrupted by a energy of us and what we furnish and discharge — though how quickly?

To put this in context, some-more than 20 years ago, a usually opening for people to promote their possess personal and internal interests was to use open entrance radio channels or write letters to journal editors. But today, we reason a lot some-more energy as broadcasters regulating digital outlets like Facebook Live, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. And for good reason. The aged clarification of promote and party was simplistic: Content generally came from a investiture and sent in one direction, to us. But that existence is changing as a media and party and industries are being incited upside down and outward in.

The YouTube Phenomenon

YouTube posted a initial video on Apr 23, 2005. That video, Me during a Zoo, has subsequently been noticed 34.5 million times in 11 years. In reduction than a decade, YouTube has altered all about radio — from what we watch, to when we watch it and who creates and produces that content. Indeed, in reduction than a decade, it has turn a hazard to a required business indication of radio — though not in a proceed a universe expected.

“ATT is perplexing to renovate from asset-heavy to content-rich and network-centric.”

YouTube was creatively combined to make it easy for everybody to emanate and upload their possess personal, homemade videos and post them to a internet so anyone could see them. It fast became a end of a own, one that challenged and continues to plea normal TV broadcaster business models.  In time, YouTube became a height on that ‘we a people’ posted what we favourite and what ‘we watched.’ Unlike normal imitation and promote outlets, there is no executive group or gatekeeper perplexing to review a minds and emanate calm formed on a establishment’s bargain of what we desire. And — during slightest primarily — YouTube was giveaway of commercials.

The incumbents did not conflict good to a YouTube phenomenon. One digital video brief from Saturday Night Live called Lazy Sunday, starring Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell, racked adult 5 million views though was pulled by a writer — NBCUniversal — dual months later. In YouTube’s infancy, many television, film and song companies were utterly disturbed that users would possibly take their copyrighted element and post it online for giveaway or only change their observation function from TV to a internet. Those and other fears valid to be correct. We, a people, were about to be proceed competitors to a likes of ABC, NBC and CBS.

Today, YouTube is a large digital height and practical network fueled by a people that is on par, if not bigger, than roughly any TV or wire network. And by many accounts, Facebook Live and YouTube will continue to grow in significance as user-generated calm on digital platforms turn proceed competitors to intuitionally generated calm on normal mediums — possibly distributed by normal means or online.

Incumbents Play Catch-up

Traditional media companies are doing all they can to plea a flourishing numbers and content. Witness a recently announced, and pending, squeeze of Time Warner by ATT for $85 billion. This acquisition, if authorized by regulators, will single-handedly renovate ATT into a calm goliath. The new mixed will span ATT’s some-more than 130 million mobile business with Time Warner’s abounding film and TV offerings (Warner Brothers), news (CNN), reward wire (HBO), party (TNT), sports (TBS) and other offerings. In essence, ATT CEO Randall Stephenson is perplexing to renovate his asset-heavy association (with low valuations) into a content-rich and network-centric organization. But will it unequivocally concede them to renovate this old-style network into a practical network that carries what we furnish and create?

According to ATT’s leadership, “Premium calm always wins. It has been loyal on a large screen, a TV shade and now it’s proof loyal on a mobile shade … [and] it will interrupt a normal party indication and pull a bounds on mobile calm accessibility for a advantage of customers.” For ATT, a understanding would obscure a scarcely $50 billion DirecTV merger and competence be a biggest merger since profitable $67 billion for BellSouth in 2006.

Verizon, a nation’s largest mobile carrier, is also perplexing to keep adult though around a opposite route. The telecom association is focused on building a digital height with a merger of AOL and Yahoo, with their ad networks as large a lure as their new media content offerings, as it gears adult to contest with Google and Facebook for digital promotion dominance.

From a perspective, both companies are perplexing their best to cgange their business model. But according to a investigate on business models, a genuine doubt is this: Are they doing a right thing or do they need to turn genuine record companies or network orchestrators to win in this age of platforms and networks?

Sports and Entertainment — a Similar Challenge

Much to everyone’s amazement, a once solidly arguable generator of TV ratings in live sporting games — a NFL — has seen a assembly trip in 2016. The Wall Street Journal reports that ratings fell 10% in a initial month of a pro-football season. That’s an extraordinary statistic given that football is one of a many critical calm franchises in normal promote and imitation media.

Why did ratings tumble so precipitously? CBS CEO Leslie Moonves told a paper that a presidential choosing competence have diverted some viewers. Others indicate to a accessibility of football on other venues, such as Verizon mobile phones and Twitter that could have siphoned viewers from normal TV. Notably, Nielsen doesn’t entirely lane viewership on a opposite platforms, so this opening could have undercounted ratings as well. Cord-cutting also could be a cause as people embankment cost wire TV.

“Sports, entertainment, broadcasting, edition companies that adhere to a aged proceed will continue to remove ground.”

After a election, NFL ratings have rebounded though sojourn down so distant for a season, according to Sports Illustrated. However, we trust that there are elemental shifts holding place that could spell difficulty for a NFL in a prolonged run.

  • First, today’s broadcasts of veteran football have constructional issues that are out of sync with a on-demand, real-time culture. There are many people who can still watch a four-hour game, though it is removing harder to find them.
  • Second, a commercial-kickoff-commercial method in a games only doesn’t align with a proceed to life. Can we suppose putting adult with mixed interruptions as we try to be prolific during work?

Finally, only declare a energy and expansion of Fantasy Sports to know a ‘power of us’ alongside normal sports to know that we wish and will compensate for a purpose in this new diversion of entertainment, sports and broadcast.

The Bottom Line

It’s time to change a core beliefs — or mental models — of media and party companies if they wish to survive, and flower in a age of platforms and networks that are built around us and a ability to create, furnish and beget content. From a perspective, a deeply hold beliefs that historically gathering success for media and party are being upended in a universe that has both models — institutionally generated calm on their platforms and user generated calm that flower on online platforms.

Based on a work around a globe, it is transparent that companies have confirmed defence systems — organizational systems that were built to conflict change, generally shifts forced on them by digital platforms and networks that are eating their world, such as Uber, Airbnb, YouTube or Snapchat. Media and party companies are no different.

To be sure, they have finished a lot in new years — cruise a ‘TV Everywhere’ beginning in 2009 by Time Warner and Comcast to put wire video calm opposite platforms, as good as origination of supposed over-the-top providers like Hulu (owned by broadcasters), HBO GO and CBS All Access. But their position stays precarious. Just demeanour during Netflix’s rise. As of a third quarter, it had some-more than 47 million U.S. subscribers — roughly 87 million worldwide — some-more than double that of Comcast in a U.S., a nation’s largest wire operator.

Sports, entertainment, broadcasting and edition companies that adhere to a aged proceed of doing things will continue to remove ground. Premium content, such as a good sports franchises of a NFL, NBA and MLB, will sojourn valuable. As would telecom companies like ATT and Verizon that yield a vast, inhabitant network. Those during risk are companies that rest mostly on their possess content, and not a calm of their network regulating extensible and scalable digital platforms to give users a place to share their possess creations.

The same is loyal for entertainment. While there will always be an ardour for professionally constructed content, increasingly, these networks act as a megaphone that lets users’ voices be listened — both as co-creators and network contributors. The genuine doubt is this: What will a destiny demeanour like when it comes to ownership? No one knows as cord-cutting takes place and everybody becomes his or her possess broadcaster and anticipation sports group owner, a outcome of building platforms and networks where we are during a center.

The Future Is in Our Hands

The destiny of entertainment, publishing, sports and broadcasting industries is now resolutely in our hands. We now have a tools, platforms and capabilities to do what we want, whenever we wish — and that means, we can review what we wish on a run, watch what we wish during any time possibly it’s party or video-chatting with friends or family.

Today’s technologies offer leisure from a routines of yesterday — including sitting and examination NFL games, TV or wire channels, as we have a choice to work some-more during a possess schedule, contra a media company’s schedule, interjection to on-demand and user-generated programing. If media and party companies wish to stay applicable and profitable in a future, they will need to build a clever attribute with us, and give us a place in their programming and on their networks — or else, we competence only spend all of a time on YouTube or Facebook Live.


The Flash, Green Arrow, Supergirl: CW superheroes crossover …

On an early Oct afternoon, a casts of The CW’s “Arrowverse” serials collected in an airfield hangar on a hinterland of Vancouver B.C. for a ancestral event.

Entertainment Weekly visited a set of a large endeavour and brings we a news in a new issue, on sale this week. We got to see Supergirl fly, The Flash and Cisco rip a hole in a fabric of space-time (or fake to), and even saw someone get shot. No, we can’t tell we who, though we can tell we a hazard that set a sprawling tract in motion: The Dominators, mind-controlling extraterrestrials threatened by Earth’s surging race of metahumans. If you’re wondering if “mind-control” = “we’re totally going to see these superheroes quarrel any other,” afterwards you’re positively [REDACTED].

The “Arrowverse” has an swap moniker, a “Berlantiverse,” named after a super-producer who presides over it, and he has some feelings about a term. “I intent to it, to be honest. There are usually so many people that are also partial of this,” says Greg Berlanti, 44, whose prodigious, heterogeneous outlay began with Everwood in 2002 and now includes Blindspot on NBC. “Plus, we never wish anything named after we that people could be dissapoint or indignant about.” Produced in partnership with Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, Berlanti’s tiny shade diagnosis of Warner Bros.’ DC Comics properties offers an choice – some competence disagree improvement – a studio’s large shade superhero pop, including a baleful complicated steel of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel flicks and a bubblegum anarchy of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The Arrowverse indeed likes superheroes, believes in superheroes, and knows how to have fun with them – and critique them – without deconstructing them to smithereens. They possess a flightiness of Marvel’s cinematic star (still a genre’s bullion standard), and a liberality of Marvel’s best TV offerings (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage), though with a some-more untroubled welcome of melodrama and whimsy.

“These shows have to work on mixed levels,” says Berlanti. “You wish them to be fun and enjoyable. But if they’re not about something, because are we display adult to work each day and seeking everybody to flow their heart and essence into a story if it’s usually about a Flash fighting a knave of a week?”
