The X-Perience Competition Team
Our Competition Team is about learning and growing together as dancers and individuals. Throughout the season, we’ll strive for an environment that demands discipline, creativity, personal expression, and above all, fun! Our Competition Team places emphasis on TEAM and therefore, we work together, learn together, laugh together, and grow up dancing together. This group is composed of dancers who have been hand-selected through a rigorous audition process. They serve as our representatives not only in talent and skill but in character as well.

We, along with various cohosting studios, have a Winter and Summer dance intensives called Dancers Don’t Take Breaks. Both are designed with the intent to bring dancers together from all over the city to train during their breaks. We believe that dancers don’t only learn to be better performers from their instructors, but there’s much to be learned from being exposed to other dancers.
Training groups are broken up into
Jr.s.: Ages 7-11
Sr.s.: Ages 12 and up

Founder & C.E.O.
At 18 years old, Fayette joined Greater Exodus Baptist church and in 2001, although she had reservations, God said that it was time for Fayette to take over the dance ministry. The ministry has grown to include over 50 members ages 4-adults. In the summer of 2007 she developed the X-Press Yourself Creative and Performing Arts Program for children ages 6-16, which was housed in the People for People building. In 2011 she reconnected with her longtime friend, Christian Winters and together they launched The Feltonville Dream Center’s Arts and Education After-School Program.
