DancElite Gems represents CK DanceWorks’ premier, most advanced level of our performing companies. Gems consists of leveled dancers who train an average of 8 hours per week - demonstrating skilled technique, advanced movement styles and an unparalleled performance quality. These dancers choose DancElite as a priority over all other extra activities and understand that, more than likely, they will not be able to commit to other activities throughout the year. These dancers attend competitions and conventions on the regional level and national level (every other year) and are expected to be well-rounded, poised and extremely focused dancers while adhering to the intense demands (monetary and time) expected of Gems. AGAIN - Please note that the commitment to DancElite Gems is a big one...not leaving extra time for other serious, outside activities. This is important to understand before pursuing a spot on any Gems’ team. CK DanceWorks offers performance/competition groups other than Gems, for dancers who would like to be a part of the competition circuit while pursuing other opportunities and activities or who are not able to fulfill the monetary commitment of DancElite Gems.
DancElite Prodigy serves as CK DanceWorks’ focused, talented group of dancers who would like to take their dance training to the next level. Prodigy consists of leveled dancers who train an average of 3-5 hours per week - demonstrating skilled technique, advanced movement styles and an unparalleled performance quality. These dancers attend competitions on the regional level and an “in house” convention and are expected to be well-rounded, poised and extremely focused dancers while adhering to the demands (monetary and time) expected of Prodigy. Prodigy was created for dancers who are interested in dancing in the competition circuit while still pursuing other activities and opportunities outside of dance. Prodigy also requires less financial and time commitment than other DancElite groups.
ADC (Acworth Dance Crew) is a collection of CK DanceWorks’ premier, most advanced “hip hoppers” formed into varying levels of dance crews.
