KJ Families-

We are hopping into April and gearing up for a remarkable Spring Concert in June. Choreography is underway, merchandise for the show is now on the website for pre-order, and ticket sales are opening soon. This time of year is very exciting for all KJ students and staff. For those of you new to the KJ family, you are in for special treat. The KJ Spring Concert is not your typical dance recital. The hours spent behind the scenes are countless. Secure your seat as early as April 30th! You won't want to miss this Legendary event as we celebrate the 25th Year of KJ Dance!


A BIG thanks to everyone who helped to make the 5th KJ Giving Gala another memorable event. Supporting dancers in furthering their education is of upmost importance to the KJ Staff. Thank you to everyone who attended and support our graduating seniors.
