EDGE Team Mission

The goal is to prepare our dancers in an accelerated and advanced program. EDGE Team will be designed to prepare dancers for KJ’s PULSE competitive company program, outside curriculum programs, OR advanced continued dance training. All EDGE Team dancers will participate in two local workshops/competitions and will perform in the KJ Giving Gala, #TheHolidayWay Show, and KJ Annual Concert. The goal is to experience being part of a team and working toward common goals in a stress free, fun environment. This energetic group of dancers will participate in this program with an accelerated technical curriculum. EDGE dancers learn valuable skills, such as exploring their individual creativity, along with working as a team for a common purpose.

What is EDGE Team

EDGE Team is a team of dancers that takes a minimum of 3 hours a week, and has the ability to compete a competition dance twice a year. They also take part in our annual Giving Gala, and Holiday Way Show. This unique group of dancers trains together each week at a higher level than dancers taking one or two classes at KJ. We are excited about our 3rd year developing this program, and look forward to another great season with this team.

All EDGE dancers are expected to wear clean pink tights, red leotards, pink ballet shoes, black tap shoes that tie (no mary jane tap shoes please), tan jazz shoes, and hair pulled away from their face. For tap and jazz class, dancers may wear biker shorts and other dance wear with their red leotard.
