Elite Dancer Rules & Requirements

Elite Dancer Qualification: Official Rules

The Elite Dancer Program stems from our partnership with the Excel in Motion Dance Convention. Elite Dancers earn the opportunity to assist master teachers on stage during the Excel tour following the year that they qualify. Depending on the city, Elite Dancers will assist choreographers during 1-2 classes a day allowing assistants to take the rest of the classes and workshops offered at Excel. Elite Dancers receive a scholarship. At select locations, Elite Dancers will work with a choreographer to learn a piece that will be showcased at the Exhibition Show on Saturday evening of the convention. Select students will be asked to perform their top-ranked solo.

Elite Dancer Requirements:

  • Must compete at an Elite Performance Challenge or Excel in Motion Event.
  • Must be Teen (13-15 yrs) or Senior (16-19 yrs).
  • Must earn an Elite Platinum Ranking in the competitive category.
  • Must rank in the top three dancers overall.
  • In addition to a solo, qualifiers must compete in at least one group routine affiliated with a studio.
  • Elite Dancers must qualify each year for the following Excel in Motion Tour.
