WELCOME - VIRTUAL WCTE EXPERIENCE
Welcome to our Virtual WCTE Dance Experience!
Our vision with providing this NEW educational virtual dance experience is for dancers to stay INSPIRED, stay positive, stay connected, continue to grow and KEEP ON DANCING!
At WCTE, we value the hard-work and dedication that teachers, instructors, choreographers and dancers have put into their routines. During this current climate, we want to offer an alternative competition experience for dancers and studios to showcase their talents and be recognized for their passion and dedication. We want to continue to provide a platform that offers dancers an outlet to grow and develop and be inspired.
Our mission is simple: We are devoted to offering valuable feedback and well- rounded critiques that will motivate, inspire and educate dancers. Our goal is for dancers to leave our virtual experience having learned something valuable to further their dance education.
