Our dancers also performed at the “Spirit of the Torch” Olympic Ceremony, where Shawna Sloan (artistic director and owner of CR DanceXtreme Inc.) acted as artistic director. For the past 11 years, we have taught hip hop workshops in local elementary schools as well. Our faculty teaches each grade a dance routine for two weeks and finishes off the third week with a dance performance where families and the school faculty are invited to be entertained by the students. All of the students, families, and school faculty have given a lot of positive feedback and continue to ask for our services.
