Last night, New York City Dance Alliance wrapped up its Nationals competition by showcasing some pretty insane talent at its galas. DT wants to congratulate the individual winners in each division, but we also want to give a shout-out to the studios these dancers are from—because we know it’s the dance teachers who taught ‘em everything they know! Major props to:

National Mini Outstanding Dancers

Madison Brown, from Lents Dance Company in Florida

Brady Farrar, from Stars Dance Studio in Florida

National Junior Outstanding Dancers

Jasmine Cruz, from Westlake School for the Performing Arts in California

Parker Garrison, from Stars Dance Studio in Florida (two winners from this school!)

National Teen Outstanding Dancers

Nina Bartell, from Sweatshop in Colorado

Harrison Knostman, from Studio West Dance Center in Colorado

National Senior Outstanding Dancers

Sarah Pippin, from CC & Co in North Carolina

Jake Tribus, from Next Generation Ballet at the Patel Conservatory in Florida

And let’s not forget about the Critics’ Choice competition, sponsored by our sister magazines, Dance Magazine and Dance Spirit. In the mini division, Westchester Dance Academy took home the honors; in the junior division, Performance Edge 2; in the teen division, Westlake School for the Performing Arts; and in the senior division, Tempe Dance Academy.

Congrats to all! Wish you’d been there? Pretend like you were by catching a glimpse of the teen outstanding dancers:
