THE KJ DANCE VIRTUAL DANCE TRAINING EXPERIENCE
Happy Tuesday to all of our wonderful KJ families!
In the midst of the current climate, our faculty cares deeply about the well being, health, and safety of our KJ dancers and their families. While we have been continuously working to ensure our studio facilities remain clean and prepared for the return of our dancers and KJ families upon governing approval to resume our normal weekly class schedule. As increased regulations and social distancing enforcement continues to compound from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we must also remain practical and forward-thinking on ways we can continue to serve our KJ families and maximize the artistic development of our dancers during this time.
We realize that while at home, the increased demand for ideas and ways to keep children entertained and educated can be challenging for parents. Many of our parents will be working from home and trying to manage restless dancers searching for options to express their inner performer. Our current reality has continued to evolve in uncertainty making it our mission to navigate a way in which KJ can be a supportive catalyst for daily moments of certainty within your home. We know social distancing works, but it needs to be accompanied by an equal effort toward creating connection among one another. Social Distance Does Not Equal Social Isolation.
Last week we launched our virtual training platform with virtual classes both LIVE and ON DEMAND. The response and participation from parents and dancers has been incredible. Our faculty HAD A BLAST this past week seeing so many dancers on our LIVE ZOOM classes! Dancers joined in online (sometimes in pajamas) with moms, dads, siblings, and even dogs! We have converted studio 2 in Plano into a video set so that we can provide a top notch experience for our dancers! We have a SPECTACULAR schedule lined up for you (including classes for the entire family) so get ready to hop online and have some fun with us!
Stay interactive and connected with us via social media by sharing your virtual class pics and tagging KJ in your posts! For those of you who tag us, we will be highlighting your hard work on our social stories and on our website!
We will be updating our website www.kjdance.com with all virtual training opportunity information and related resources in the coming week!
We will also be posting virtual training announcements and updates on our KJ Dance Students, Faculty, and Alumni Facebook Group. Make sure you have joined this group created to share exciting studio news and to connect our KJ family. The ON DEMAND video playlist is unlisted on YouTube to ensure that this valuable content is protected for our students. Links to access all YouTube playlists and online training videos are attached below.

We look forward to seeing your child thrive with unlimited access to our virtual classes, unique activities, and creative challenges!
ACTIVITY WORK BOOK & CREATIVE DANCE CHALLENGES
Additionally, we have created a workbook of dance related worksheets, an at home dance challenge checklist, and activity pages for our dancers. We know many parents will be working from home, and the dancers will be restless staying out of the rain. Our goal as a creative team is to design resources that compliment our virtual trainings and keep dancers healthy, home, and active during these uncertain times. We want to encourage you to engage with our faculty regarding these virtual activities daily on our social media platforms!
The April work book is currently being created and will be sent to all KJ families March 30th! We will be implementing fun accountability opportunities for dancers in April on a weekly basis with our faculty through the ZOOM platform. Stay tuned for more!

VIRTUAL CLASS SCHEDULES
Classes have been provided for all ages, dance genres, and levels and are available to our students 24/7! Our ON DEMAND YouTube playlist of classes has been set to "unlisted" to protect the valuable content developed for our students.
As for April tuition, We are doing everything we can to deliver the most intellectual and thorough dance education. However, recognition that we are unable to meet in the studio we are reducing tuition by setting a flat family rate of $86.00 for dancers in our non competitve program and a flat family rate of $76 for dancers in rhythm & rhyme classes.We hope this temporary tuition structure will help accommodate our families.
The studio encourages that shared sacrifice is virtual at this time and our faculty are doing all that we can to continue to serve you and your continued support is much appreciated!
