Freestyle Dance Academy dancers, Julia Tempestini and Olivia Chwieroth, were recently recognized by Bucks County publication Inspiring Teens Magazine for their participation in the dance studio’s Philadelphia 76ers Michael Jackson Tribute Performance. After completing the show at the Wells Fargo Center, the girls were nominated by their peers, and chosen to write articles for the local teen publication.
Julia wrote an article in the magazine about her participation in the performance. She explained how the dancers would met for rehearsals, practice at home, and work towards preparing for the show at the Wells Fargo Center. She mentioned Freestyle Dance Academy’s Temple Halftime performance as well, and went on to share how the dancers build friendships during dance class and experiences like the Philadelphia 76ers show.
Olivia was nominated to write a piece for the publication about her experience video taping and creating a ‘Behind the Scenes’ video for the dance studio. This video, which was shot and edited by Olivia, covered the dancers in rehearsal, all the way up to the performance on the court before the Philadelphia 76ers game. She explained to the readers the difference of being behind the camera, and watching the dancers prepare and put in such hard work, all for the audience. She notes the time, sweat and preparation that goes into executing one show for the viewers. Olivia’s video will be featured on the Inspiring Teens Magazine blog, along with the articles from Julia and Olivia.

Both girls will have their articles featured in the printed edition of the magazine, and the online blog, during the month of April. You can get a copy of Inspiring Teen Magazine on their website.
