Our recital was a big success and I wanted to thank all of my staff and parent volunteers who helped to make our show one of our best ever! Below are some pictures of our dress rehearsal and recital red carpet.
Awesome day with our Talented Tots Pre-K end of the season performance! Congratulations to our 4 Tots who graduated today and are off to kindergarten next year. We are now enrolling for our 2017-18 Season and space is filling up fast!
So proud of my Elite Competition Team this weekend at Revolution! I am so blessed to have such awesome team parents, dancers and staff. Most all of our dances placed TOP 10, won 2 Entertainment Awards and a couple of other special judges awards, lots of Platinums and to top it all off, had 3 dances place in the TOP 3 for Overall Highest Scores for age 11 and up and 12 and over for the entire competition! 3 GOLDEN Tickets and an invitation to compete at the WORLD DANCE CHAMPIONSHIP! Great job Dancers!!
Our Elite Dancers just came back from performing at Disney World for the 4th time! (The date says May however this took place in December 2016 and I neglected to post until now!)What a great job these girls did! Rehearsals were long and grueling however it was so worth it once they found themselves dancing down Main Street U.S.A. entertaining thousands of people. They also got to perform at the Beauty and the Beast stage at Hollywood Studio's which was such a great experience. We made memories to last a lifetime!
Every other year, we take our dancers to perform at Disney World and hope that perhaps your dancer will audition to dance at Disney with us in 2018!

Congratulations Elite Company Dancers and Team Members on a great performance at the Nolensville Buttercup Festival!
Our Disney Dancers had a great time as they traveled to Disney World in Orlando, Florida on November 30 for the taping of the Disney Christmas Day Parade! Fifteen Elite Dancers performed in three different dances that will be aired on ABC TV Christmas morning on the Disney Christmas Day parade. The older dancers learned actual choreography from the Broadway hit musical, NEWSIE’S and rehearsed with the choreographer from the show as well as some cast members. Our younger dancers will be featured in the BRAVE section of the parade dancing right behind Merida. Also, we had 2 of our dancers, Miss Jazmyn Jenkins and Miss Kaitlyn Cobat chosen out of 300 other dancers to be featured as one of 20 dancers for the special maypole section of the Brave dance. We are so proud of all our dancers as they did a great job representing Elite!
The Elite Company Dancers were honored to perform in the annual Nolensville Veteran’s Day parade for the 5th year in a row! The dancers had a great
time showing their respect and gratitude for all of our local Veterans as they do each year. It was a great day for everyone!
