University Performing Arts Centre

Teacher(s) Judi Freed-Siegfried

I had an amazing year dancing with Tremaine. Through my travels, I have grown as a dancer, performerand as a person. This experience has given me the chance to do what I love and develp friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. I love traveling with Tremaine and look forward to continuing for many years to come. Thank you to Joe Tremaine and his wonderful faculty and staff for making my dream come true.

My name is Allison Terry and I am a 14 year old freshman in high school. I began dance training at the age of three at University Performing Arts Centre in Oviedo, Florida. I study many different styles of dance, including ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop, acrobatics and contemporary. I started dancing competitively at the age of five and I have received many awards and scholarships from various dance organizations. When I am not dancing, I enjoy spending time with friends, singing, writing and shopping.

I have been attending Tremaine Dance Conventions since the age of eight, when my trio won the Junior Best of Show National Cash Award. It was a great honor that I will never forget because we were so young. The Tremaine faculty has inspired me since the beginning and I have learned so much from them over the years. I feel extremely grateful and blessed to have been chosen to represent Tremaine as the 2009-2010 Teen Dancer of the Year.

I would like to thank my family for their love, encouragement and support throughout the years. I would also like to thank my choreographers and teachers, especially Ms. Judi Freed-Siegfried the “Tremaine 2009-2010 Teacher of the Year,” for their efforts that have allowed me to be the best dancer I can be. I would also like to thank Joe Tremaine and the faculty for believing that I can represent Tremaine as the Teen Female Dancer of the Year. I am looking forward to the excitement of traveling the country and being able to do what I love to do.
