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 NY based Independent multi- media artist. He has been making music professionally and distributing it since 2005 under his own label, AJB Productions. To kick start his first recording, he offered hand made T shirts on the internet and started selling immediately. He is proud to say that he has self funded and self produced all of his work to date: 7 albums, 1 Art Film and 2 Feature Films.
Adam has Gallery Representation through Polaris Art Gallery and his work has been shown at the Park Ave Armory, the Wallace show and the Manhattan Vintage show, all in New York.
In 2013 Adam released the AJB Art Film: Independent Matters. A visual accompaniment to his 2013 album of the same name.
All of this music has a live show with choreography, by the A&G Dance Company, which is performed preferably in alternative spaces where he can also display his art. He curates an annual AJB Art Show which incorporates all things AJB: Music, Movement & Art.
Adam also creates Pop Up film experiences displaying his cinema projects on the East End of Long Island.
The brand of AJB has spread worldwide reaching fans in over 30 countries thanks to the internet.
Adam believes in being creative and original.
Adam also co-owns the A&G Dance Company which specializes in dance education, performance and choreography with his wife Gail Baranello.
Since separating from the music industry completely, Adam has found a new supportive outlet from his hometown independent NPR Licensed radio station 88.3 WPPB who plays his music on regular rotation. Adam even had a year long radio segment, In the Cut, on the radio stations morning program, Bonnie in the Morning.
Adam is thrilled to be a working artist on the East End.
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. Gail student taught at the SUNY Stony Brook and performed in the dance departments' dance company. She also trained at local schools on LI, including Variations in Huntington and Elite Dances in Moriches and also studied in San Fransisco at ODC. 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. She is filming for a new film "Exit" coming soon and working on new choreography for their 2016 summer art show.
