    Inaugural performance of the Atlanta Dance Connection marks official return of Allyne D. Gartrell
                                          to Atlanta, Georgia

   ATLANTA, GA (EnviGlobal.com) – The city of Atlanta is poised for an amazing experience that will
   change the entire perception of dance with the return of a resident theatre company, Atlanta Dance
   Connection (ADC). Along with Founder and Artistic Director, Allyne D. Gartrell, ADC presents Grace,
   Elegance, Energy: a contemporary dance performance with two company premieres at 14 th Street
   Playhouse on May 6 – 7, 2011 at 8:00 pm ET each evening. The event will feature surprise guest
   performances, as well as a special treat from Terrence “T. C.” Carson, best recognized from the hit
   television show, “Living Single”.

   “As a company, Atlanta Dance Connection represents grace, elegance and energy. It’s like the authentic
   identity of the company. For those who have never experienced the arts, particularly dance, they will
   view a full range of emotions through the performances. The audience will go on an emotional
   rollercoaster, as dancers will be completely depleted after sharing their talents,” states Gartrell.

   Sponsored by AREA | Atlanta’s Resource for Entertainment & Arts, ADC will present a breathtaking
   experience with a variety of skilled dancers of all sizes and backgrounds. The first company premiere
   will be a ballet entitled, Conversation on the Glass, choreographed by Kevin Jackson, formerly of
   Oakland Ballet and Dallas Black Dance Theatre. Additionally, guests will enjoy the world premiere of
                                                - more -

Testosterone, choreographed by Richard A. Freeman, Jr., former principal dancer of the Dallas Black
Dance Theatre.

According to Gartrell, “Once Atlanta became a more commercial community to meet the market shift and
demands, contemporary dance somewhat fell by the waste side. My mission through ADC is to give back
to the city that I love and created the caliber of training that I received to succeed. Coming back to
Atlanta is my way of teaching each child that they can make their dreams come true; dance has no limits.
You can translate a message any age, size or color.”
