2019 CONCERT THEME REVEALED

DANCERS, it is time to FLY! That's right, the time of year we have all been looking so forward to is finally here...SHOWTIME! ! Get ready for the exciting months of show preparation headed your way each week! Concert choreography will begin during weekly classes for all students in January and February! Creating this production together with your teachers and fellow classmates will be an unforgettable experience for each and every student! Be sure to come to class each week with a great attitude, a focused mind, and a big smile to share with your peers!


Our faculty has once again taken our annual concert vision and plans to the next level. Together our talented and artistically gifted team has created an incredibly entertaining production for the KJ family.


This year our 26th annual concert production is titled "FLY...A JOURNEY THROUGH FLIGHT." The show will feature the TWC (Training with Confidence) students of KJ Plano & KJ Frisco, our 2019 PULSE graduating senior "ANGELS", the PULSE performance company dancers, our VIBE Hip Hop Crews, and the Frisco Team dancers.


Audience members will be highly entertained as they are taken through six different scenes of adventurous FLIGHT. Color, sound, and movement will keep concert goers of all ages on the edge of their seat. As the performers take FLIGHT on stage, the costuming, set design, lighting, and digital effects will collide to create a unique and original KJ Dance concert celebration.


Join us, June 1-3 for three nights of unforgettable entertainment, hundreds talented dancers, thousands of proud supporters, and countless memories will be made!

STAGE MOM CREW VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

CALLING ALL KJ SUPER MOMMAS! WE NEED YOU BACKSTAGE THIS YEAR!


CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO JOIN OUR 2019 STAGE MOM CREW - DEADLINE MAY 13!


CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT STAGE MOM RESPONSIBILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS!


Why are stage moms a necessity to the concert?

Each class MUST have at least one Stage Mom for the students to be properly chaperoned during the performance. Being a KJ Stage Mom is an extremely rewarding experience for the mom as well as an exceptional way to support your child and her classmates. Volunteering is a fun way to help with the concert and share each moment of event excitement with your student. Stage Moms will be accepted in the order they are received. Combined classes and large classes will need two stage moms. The link to sign up is found below!


Stage Mom duties include:

· Help relay information to other parents in the class and answer their questions when possible.

· Help with your class at dress rehearsal. PERK!!! While the students are on stage rehearsing the stage mom can video or take photos from the front row. Stage Moms will watch from the stage wings at the concert performance.

· Help with your class backstage during the concert performance. This includes overseeing your class for the entire show, helping them on and off stage, and monitoring your class when they are not performing.


If you have questions about our STAGE MOM CREW please call the Plano office 972.473.4017 or the Frisco office 214.469.1770.
