mentorship program

The Elite DanceWerks Mentorship Program was created to push high school dancers towards their goals and aspirations within the field of dance.  Mentees will receive personalized guidance, continued encouragement, and real-world skills and experiences to help them grow in the direction of their dreams. Each mentee is chosen by EDW Owner Cassandra Springs, who uses her own personal life and career experience to serve and inspire the next generation of young dance artists.

edw mentees

 During this mentorship I have learned many things that will benefit my dance career. I built my technique with our personal private sessions, I learned how to make stronger connections with competition companies and other dancers,  and I have grown by learning how to communicate with others professionally and firmly. Working with the Elite DanceWerks mentorship has changed my life and I hope it will change yours!
