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 also enjoy a reduced registration fee. 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.
