Elite Dancers, Elite Family, Elite Friends

DSC_0121image3 (5)FullSizeRender (5)IMG_0285The 2016-2017 dance season marks the 25th Anniversary of Elite Dancers. Originally owned and operated by Camille and Dottie Fortier for 21 years, the studio is entering its 4th season under the ownership of Katie and Donna Smith. Katie grew up in the William Floyd School District and takes great pride in owning a business in the community she grew up in and being able to give back to that community. Having the support of family and the community allows Katie to continue to share her love of dance with every dancer who enters our doors.
Elite Dancers continues to be a safe and family-oriented place for dancers of all ages to come and learn to express themselves through dance and movement. We offer Pre-School and Primary Tap/Ballet Combos for children ages 3years – 7years. These dancers perform both genres in the recital because it is our belief that even the youngest dancers should take pride in all they’ve learned for that dance year. In addition, we offer Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre for ages 7years and older as well as Contemporary for 11years and older. We also have a Regional and National Award Winning Competition Team that takes great pride in everything they accomplish through their hard work and determination.
It is because of Elite Dancers family-oriented atmosphere of love and respect that we are fortunate to have a teaching staff that is “homegrown”. Our award winning staff, Katie Smith, Donald Aversa, Kayla Tauby, Ashley Czarnecki, Amanda Delvecchio and Samantha Favia all grew up in this community and have spent most of their lives dancing at Elite Dancers as well as now teaching there. Our hard working and dedicated staff is devoted to bringing the best dance education possible to your dancer but more importantly they strive to teach your child strength, confidence and pride in themselves and what they’ve accomplished. In this very uncertain world every child needs an environment where they can be themselves, learn, have fun and feel safe both physically and emotionally. Elite Dancers prides itself on accomplishing just that. Your child and their happiness is our first priority. The unsung heroes of Elite Dancers include the office staff. Donna Smith, the office manager, Teresa Echeverria and Mary Ann Roach work diligently to make sure families feel welcome. They take pride in answering questions, addressing any parent concerns and being very knowledgeable. The office staff work together with the teaching staff on student placement to make sure all dancers are comfortable in their classes.
It is a privilege to teach our dancers not only dance technique but also to instill some life lessons along the way. In class our dancers learn dance technique, but we also try to teach how to share, communicate, be patient and problem solve if needed. Above all we make this a fun and rewarding experience for each child.
Come meet us and tour our facility in Monarch Center at 225 Montauk Highway, Moriches, NY. We will be open every Wednesday and Thursday from 4:30pm – 7:30pm until classes start on Monday, September 12th at which time we will be open Monday-Thursday starting at 4:30pm and Saturday starting at 9:00am. Please join us at our Open House on Sunday, September 11th from 1:00pm-4:00pm as we kick-off our 25th Anniversary Year! Meet our staff and enjoy some games, raffles, music and fun. We hope to see you in the 2016-2017 dance season!
