A & G Dance Company
Alternative Dance Company specializing in Performance, Choreography and Education using original music, movement and art to ensure a unique experience.
The A&G Dance Company specializes in dance education, performance and choreography. Since establishing in 2004, owners, Adam and Gail Baranello 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 NY.
Adam Baranello is a multi- media artist who has been making music and art professionally since 2005 under his own label, AJB Productions which has produced 8 albums, 1 Art Film and 2 Feature Films. His film "Exit" was an official selection is 3 festivals in 2016 and was just screened in NYC at the International Film Festival of Manhattan.
Through the Polaris Art Gallery, his artwork has been shown at the Park Ave Armory, the Wallace show and the Manhattan Vintage show and most recently had his first solo show on Main Street Southampton, NY in the summer of 2016.
All of this music has a live component 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 at the Hampton Ballet Theatre School.
Adam also co-owns the A&G Dance Company with his wife Gail Baranello.
The brand of AJB has spread worldwide reaching fans in over 30 countries, but he thrives on his own community's support. He is looking forward to many more years of creating and giving back by teaching in his community.
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 contemporary. While studying Early Childhood ed and working toward her AA degree, she continued her dance education, training and performing in NY at Elite and Variations Dance school. Gail then transferred to SUNY Stony Brook and received her BA. There, she studied Psychology and Dance and was also a student teacher for her dance professor and belonged to the universities internationally traveling dance company. In college is also where she traveled a lot and implemented yoga as a daily practice. 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. Gail has most recently acted and danced a lead role in Adam's films, "Dead End" and "Exit" which was an official selection in 3 Film Festivals this year including the International Film Festival of Manhattan where it screened in NYC. Gail is a performer, choreographer and teacher of dance and believes she has a lot to offer her community through all of her experiences. Her mission is to lead people to use the arts as a tool of self expression rather than molding themselves into a box of what others expect art or dance to be.
