Excel Dance Program

Grades 9-12

Our high school students have a world of opportunity available to them and we are here to help them navigate it all!

With the maximum amount of classes available to them, our dancers also have the option of using their training and gifts to serve the community by way of joining the senior chapter of The National Honor Society of Dance Arts or our Assistant Teacher's Training Program. Students who have completed two years of teacher training may apply to our Teacher's Apprenticeship program.

My daughter has grown up with this studio. We are so blessed by the relationships with the other students and instructors. When dancing is your heart, it's important to make the best choice possible, and we have been able to check all the boxes with Copeland Queen. Family and core values are very important here, and the instructors provide an atmosphere of growth and opportunity with warmth and acceptance.
