Yes, the rumors are true…we are expanding and adding a third studio! Yahoo!!

World Champion Taekwondo is moving to the old Tazza location and Elite is punching through the hallway and creating a third studio in their space. Not only will we be adding a third studio but we will also be making some wonderful additions and updates to our existing space.  

Construction will continue through summer with our new and improved ELITE opening this September! Words cannot express how excited we all are…everyday I remind myself that dreams really do come true!

Thank you to all our families for making Elite such a special place for so many!

Everybody Loves A Parade!

Our Performing Company added smiles and sparkles to the Portland Rose Festival Junior Parade yesterday.  For two hours they danced their way through NE Portland streets under warm sunny skies. It’s hard to tell who had more fun; our dancers or the crowd! Check out all the photos on our Gallery page.
