Absolute Dance Company - Inspire. Challenge. Dance.
Absolute Dance Company's Faculty

Absolute Dance Company's instructors are the best at what they do. Our faculty is composed of professional dancers, experienced instructors, and award winning choreographers. Absolute Dance Company is proud to introduce our 2016/2017 Dance Season Faculty:

Brandie Andrews
Absolute Dance Company Owner. Studio Director. 
Competitive Team Choreographer. Competitive Team Artistic Director.

Brandie Andrews founded Absolute Dance Company in 2003. Brandie has studied hip hop technique, performance arts, and strength training for dance in order to prepare her recreational and competitive dancers for a future in dance. Brandie's award-winning competitive teams attend conventions such as Intrigue, West Coast Dance Explosion, Velocity, 24/7, and Hollywood Vibe. Brandie's hip hop program is a technique based program that focuses on teaching the students gliding, waving, popping, house styles, isolations, beginner level breaking and more. Our hip hop program focuses on preparing our students to confidently freestyle dance at weddings, dances, and gatherings rather than just learning a choreographed piece that doesn't translate to the real world. Absolute Dance Company owner/director Brandie Andrews has built this pre-professional studio to teach students to DANCE! Students at ADC will learn proper technique, learn the terminology, have the ability to freestyle and improv, will understand beats and the rhythm of music, and will be able to use their talents in the future as a performer or as an educator of dance. 

Victoria Caruso
Jazz Program Director. Competition Choreography. 

Victoria Caruso is a professional dancer with the Cleveland Cavaliers Dance team. Victoria is Absolute Dance Company's jazz program director, contemporary instructor and creates choreography for ADC's competition teams. Victoria focuses on technique throughout her class and is able to bring fresh, innovative choreography to our jazz dancers and competition pieces. 

Melaina Kampf

Melaina began her ballet training at the age of four with the School of Cleveland San Jose Ballet, under the direction of Dennis Nahat and Gladisa Guadalupe, performing in Cleveland San Jose Ballet's performances of Toreador, Coppelia, and The Nutcracker. In addition to her classical ballet training, Ms. Kampf also studied Modern and Contemporary Dance under the tutelage of dance luminaries such as Tom Smith, Sabatino Verlezza and Tom Evert. At the age of sixteen, she joined Dancing Wheels, America's premier physically integrated dance company, as the youngest Trainee in the history of the company. She quickly rose through the ranks to become their Principle Dancer, performing featured roles in the company works by world-renown choreographers such as Sabatino Verlezza, May O'Donnell, Hernando Cortez, Michael Medcalf, Rosalind Newman, David Roussseve, and Pilobolous Dance Theater, to name a few.

In addition to dancing in over 120 performances across the country annually, Ms. Kampf served as an instructor and the School Administrator for the School of Dancing Wheels where she conducted weekly dance classes, workshops, master classes and summer camps for students with and without disabilities. As well as working with Dancing Wheels, Ms. Kampf has taught Ballet, Pointe and Contemporary Dance for students of all ages extensively throughout the Greater Cleveland area and has choreographed award-winning pieces for ballet companies and soloists at numerous dance competitions.
