Dance Convention Teachers

All faculty teachers are scheduled to attend all locations, and to teach in all three levels. While all our teachers plan to be at each and every location, occasionally other professional obligations arise and a faculty member or two cannot attend. Excel works with many unbelievable teachers and will replace anyone absent with an equally qualified teacher. Our confirmed faculty for each city will be posted (with the schedule) one week in advance.
