Miss Niki’s ELITE Performance Class is a popular performing group directed by CDA’s owner, Niki  Watkins.  The performance program is designed as a Company-prep class that is opened to all students, grades 2nd-5th who are enrolled in the 3 principle technique classes of ballet, tap and jazz.  Students enrolled in the Performance Class will learn intense choreography, taught at a fast pace, and have the opportunity to perform at many community events throughout the dance season.  This class focuses on the dancer’s ability to quickly retain choreography taught at a fast pace, and emphasizes through actual performance experience—the importance and thrill of performing in front of live audiences! 

Miss Niki’s ELITE will have it’s on performance in the holiday and end of season productions for CDA.  Their headshots are also featured in the program at both productions.

Over 90% of Miss Niki’s Elite Performance Class members go on to be members of CDA’s IMPACT Performance Group or become a member of CDA’s Company.
