I first found out about WEK because I saw a girl in a local amateur production who was clearly a cut above the rest! I found out she was a part of WEK. Their professionalism is simply outstanding. They cut no corners in any aspect of our training... they push you to the max on everything.
One thing about WEK is that you can only enjoy it to its full potential if you learn your dances and harmonies. The harder you work, the faster you climb the ranks. Local places don't care who is the best, to be honest. WEK gives those who work hardest the promotions and opportunities. One quote Martin told me a few years ago that I will never forget is 'Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard enough.'
It doesn't matter how far away you live, WEK is worth any sacrifice. If you want to be pushed above and beyond anything you can imagine, WEK is the place.
