Core Elements Performing Arts Company (CEPAC)
Dance is a form of artistic expression, designed for performing. The ultimate goal of dance training is the performance! Until the dance student performs for a live audience, their training is incomplete. Many dance students will perform only once a year-on a stage in the recital. CEPAC is a group of more serious dancers who desire more than that once-a-year opportunity. CEPAC dancers LOVE to be on a stage! The performance company will provide you with more opportunities to be in the spotlight and share your talent with others while building life long friendships.
We believe in creating a HEALTHY competition experience for students (and parents) to grow. Its about training and performing. Whether they win, or which award they win, is secondary.
