Opening at a New Location with the Help of NEDCO


Karen Capoun began instructing dance at the age of 14. She hasn’t stopped since. Her passion for dance took her to Florida where she started two studios.

Driven to return back to Nebraska to raise her children, she once again began teaching dance, initially out of her home. As her student numbers increased, so did her need for space.

Recently she moved Cheer and Dance Xpress, LLC from 4001 S. 8th Street, to a new facility at 1130 Aries Drive in Lincoln, Nebraska, just south of Southwest High School. The new facility includes two large gyms, a dance studio, multipurpose space, offices, and a spirit shop. From this location, she is able to provide services to the 600 students currently enrolled.


Karen explained that while cheerleading and dancing provide both her and her student’s tremendous rewards, she finds the most enjoyment from working side-by-side with her daughter, the Cheer and Dance Xpress staff and instructors, and time spent with the Sunshine Team, one of the State’s only performance cheer teams for children with special needs.


NEDCO’s staff wishes Cheer and Dance
Xpress, LLC continued success.
