WHAT IS ELITE PERFORMING COMPANY? Elite Performing Company (EPC) is a group of young dancers with a passion for dance, performing and sharing their talent in the local community. Dancers will receive opportunities to enhance their technique and performance capabilities, as well as receive opportunities to perform on a consistent basis at local community events. EPC is a performance group that focuses on a love of dance, its fellow dancers, and the sense of family and community it fosters. Dance Elite believes that dance is not just about the moves you learn, the performances you give, or the competitions you win…..we believe dance is about the family and experiences you gain along the way.
WHAT DOES MY DANCER GAIN FROM BEING ON EPC? As a member of EPC, dancers will learn about dedication, teamwork, leadership, respect, philanthropy and sisterhood through various activities. These activities include working with local philanthropies, team bonding, fundraising events, as well as helping host Studio-Wide activities. We strive to grow and educate our dancers not just in dance, but as young individuals.
