We are making several minor changes to the weekly schedule effective immediately . Mr. Jeff will no longer be teaching at KJ as he is pursuing other opportunities. We wish him the very best. Miss Emily, Miss Lexi and Mr. Oszoy will be training our dancers in the ballet program this season and the schedule will reflect these changes. Each one of these teachers care deeply for every student and the development of individual technique . We are eager to embrace the new schedule and provide positive feedback and advancement in the ballet program at KJ.

Starfish Dallas is sponsored by AT&T, the Thompson Knight & Foundation and The Catholic Foundation and proceeds from the concert will benefit Our Friends Place and St. Jude Center – Senior Housing for the Homeless.
