Shannon Osburn has been a dance mom to her three daughters for seven years, and this year her dream of opening a dance studio for her girls is becoming a reality.

In downtown Dryden, there is a plethora of businesses: multiple hair and nail salons, a post office, a bank, a café, pizza shop, library, and a liquor store. However, for the first time in Dryden village history, a dance studio will be added to that list.

Tre Bella’s Dance Studio will be opening its doors at 15 West Main Street to the public during Dairy Days, June 14th.  Osburn is the Assistant Director of the Custom Development Team at Cornell, and is looking to open her studio for her daughters, as well as other young people in the Dryden area. “I first enrolled them because I wanted them to have great confidence in themselves,” says Osburn. “This is very important to me.”

Osburn has gone to great lengths to ensure that the studio is very involved with the community. When looking to design a logo, she sought out the graphic design class at Dryden High School. Osburn challenged the students to design a creative logo based on set criteria and a deadline, similar to clients in the professional world. There were three designs that were chosen by Osburn and her daughters, Morganne, Isabella, and Brooklynn, as the winners. The first place logo was designed by McKenna White, a sophomore at Dryden; the second by Rachel Wojcik, a senior, and the third by Hunter Senecal, also a senior. Mckenna’s logo can be seen on all merchandise and the webpage for the studio.

There are currently four teachers employed at Tre Bella’s.

Emily Dean, a Phoenix native, has danced competitively since the age of 10, and has been choreographing solos, duets, trios, and group dances since her freshman year of high school. All of Emily’s competitive dances have received high awards, she has been awarded numerous class scholarships.

Adrienne Seccia has been a recreational and competitive dancer for 19 years, and she has organized numerous summer dance camps. Amongst these camps is an organization that she started during her senior year in high school, which takes all proceeds from a summer dance camp and donates them to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Adrienne is currently a first grade teacher in the Newark Valley School District, and also teaches an after school dance group.

Dryden native Carolyn Crawford, has been dancing since the age of 5, and began competing at the age of 11. She also has experience in musical theater and cheerleading. In 2012, Carolyn attended a national competition in Louisville, Kentucky for two singing solos. Carolyn has just finished her freshman year at Ithaca College, with a major in Journalism.

Kerra Matolka, is a senior at Newark Valley High School, and has been dancing since the age of 7. She has been awarded countless first place and high point awards at numerous competitions, and has been teaching dance at her home studio as well. Kerra has been accepted to attend Binghamton University in the fall, where she will continue her dance education.

Added bonus at the studio:  Tabata, Core, Stability Ball, and Zumba!! They will be led by certified personal trainer Veronica Nash!!
