2019 Elite Dance Cup Results and Pictures

Elite Dance Cup Baton Rouge 2019

We truly are blessed to have such wonderful faculty, choreographers, parents, and students! Lots of sacrifices take place on so many ends!

Families sacrifice quality time together, parents commute long distances and find a way to afford their child’s passion. Many social events get turned down throughout the year. Today these sacrifices brought me back to the perspective of why I do it! It’s not the awards or the wins, it’s the continuous growth on and off the stage!

I’m SO, SO PROUD of our studio, our faculty, our parents, and especially our kiddos! Thank you for your dedication and hard work! It was a tough weekend, and you all rose to the occasion. Our dancers continue to improve and make us proud! We were even able to get in some tailgating with the best prop dads around.

Kelli’s Kreative Dance was awarded the ADCC Studio of Excellence award for highest average group and line scores of the entire competition!

Troubled Waters took home the Elite Dance Cup for the highest scoring performance of the entire competition!
