The Super Wonderful Advanced Team (S.W.A.T.) is comprised of a handful of highly motivated children from our participating schools who show a high level of motivation, an aptitude for kinetic learning, and who respond exceptionally well to our instruction.

Celebration Team

This is a group of our most accomplished dancers who wish to commit extra-curricular time to learn more advanced dance techniques and develop their proficiency levels. The team consists of Alumni Kids Excel dancers that are in 5th through 8th grade.

Tiny Tots

Kids Excel's Tiny Tot program provides unique arts instruction for Kindergarten students in participating partner schools. Weekly classes teach students how to listen, express themselves creatively, think critically, and follow directions. Each 30-minute class is led by a Teaching Artist and Musician, both of whom are highly trained in the NDI methodology.

Kids Excel What They Say


Such great memories! One amazing show! And hopefully more to come!! I cannot thank you enough!

I like dancing because I like to feel the spotlight on my face and then I dance my heart out. I would like to thank you again for making my dreams come true.

I really hope you were there to watch us – we were on fire! We owe you one because Kids Excel is out of this world awesomeness!

In the beginning of Kids Excel I felt insecure about how I danced, but now if I dance I am confident about myself. The icing on the cake was when we went to the Plaza Theatre. When I stood on stage I felt like my heart was going to fall out.
