A & G Dance Company
Alternative Dance Company specializing in Performance, Choreography and Education using original music, movement and art to ensure a unique experience.
If you try to put their style of dance into a box, you will be unsatisfied. A&G believe in a strong dance training for knowledge and strength, but that through technique comes the freedom to dance and not be confined to any one genre.
Adam Baranello is a muti-media artist living on the east end of Long Island. Although he was an all-star athlete, he started pursuing the arts in high school and studied further in college which led him to meet his wife, Gail Baranello. Since then, he has started his own production company, AJB productions and co owns the A&G dance company. Adam has created a prolific amount of original work in music, dance, visual art and film in 10 years. His music landed him much attention in the entertainment industry giving him a glimpse into the world of fame which he found a huge resistance to and from. That experience only deepened his creative flow and he has become grounded and committed to his work here in the Hamptons. He has produced 7 albums,(see the music section) traveled around the US and NYC performing his original work and in 2015 he released his first feature film entitled, "Dead End". He holds an artist residency creating, performing and displaying work with the Hampton Ballet Theatre School and is represented by Polaris Art Gallery. He is currently working on his 2nd film, "Exit" and new music to accompany the film and live art shows. He feels very connected to his community where he feels tremendously supported and cultivated and spends his days teaching in schools and performing and creating. He also has a radio segment on the "Eclectic Cafe with Bonnie Grice" on NPR station 88.3 FM WPPB called "In the Cut"every Thursday at 9:45 am.
Gail Baranello has trained in many styles of dance since she was 3. In high school, she traveled the east coast on a competition team winning high score medals in jazz, tap and "open category" (today's contemporary).
After high school, she continued training and started dabbling in community theatre dance roles while she was studying early childhood ed and psychology. After attaining her Associates degree, she furthered her education receiving a bachelors in psychology with a dance minor. While training still in college Gail student taught at the university and performed in the dance departments' company. Gail then started her masters degree in dance therapy, but soon dropped out to start her own dance company with her now husband, Adam Baranello. Since establishing the A&G Dance Company in 2004, they have a large repertoire of original work. They have performed all over the country and have become a staple on the east end of Long Island as dance educators and performance artists holding a residency at the Hampton Ballet Theatre school, and hold many other residences through the Artists In Schools program in Suffolk and Nassau county. Gail has most recently acted and danced a lead role in Adam's film, Dead End available on Amazon.
