KJ Families,

Concert planning and prep is underway, and this newsletter will be the HUB for all information and questions you may have about the concert. Please visit back often, as we will make updates, and add new information throughout the Spring. If your dancer is looking to add another class to their dance schedule, please have them trial a class this week or next! Trial classes are free, and we would love to see students branch out and try something new.

Winter enrollment is underway on our website, kjdance.com. Please CLICK HERE to see an overview of our classes. The last day to add a class, and be guaranteed to receive a costume is March 3rd.

If you need to change classes, please email Aaron at kjdancebilling@gmail.com

KJ Concert vs. Rhythm & Rhyme Recital

The Rhythm and Rhyme Recital is for our preschool aged dancers, and is held in-house at KJ Plano. This is a more intimate setting for our younger dancers. The Concert is designed for dancers that are enrolled in the Combo I classes and older.

We transform our KJ Plano studio into a dance wonderland for these dancers. Tickets info and much much more is coming soon.

Concert FAQ

When will the dancers begin to learn their dance for the Concert?

Technique training is of utmost importance at KJ Dance. It is important to us that we complete the curriculum and do not practice the same dance over and over for the spring semester. KJ dancers will begin to learn their concert dance mid February, and will practice pieces of their dance throughout the semester. We are excited to watch them shine, and will ensure that dancers feel confident in their performance dance.

What is the difference in the Rhythm and Rhyme Recital and the 2023 Concert?

The Rhythm and Rhyme Recital is for our preschool aged dancers, and is held in-house at KJ Plano. This is a more intimate setting for our younger dancers. The Concert is designed for dancers that are enrolled in the Combo I classes and older.

When is the last day my dancer can join a class and still perform in the concert?

MARCH 3RD IS THE LAST DAY ANY DANCER CAN ADD A CLASS OR ENROLL AND STILL BE GUARANTEED A COSTUME. Dancers may enroll at anytime, but will not be guaranteed in the show past the 3rd of March.

Will both my children perform in the same show?

As always, we try very hard to place siblings in the same show. We will be very diligent this year and try our best, but as always there are no guarantees. We hope to accommodate your family the best we can. Thank you for understanding!

Will there be tickets for the concert?

Tickets are first come, first serve. Ticket sales are not limited and will go on sale at the beginning of May. Tickets will be available to purchase through the Allen Performing Arts Center website.

When are the dress rehearsals for the Concert?

Dress rehearsals for the Concert will be May 30th-June 2nd in the afternoon/evenings. Exact dress rehearsals times and dates, and more information will be coming soon. It is HIGHLY encouraged that your dancer attend the dress rehearsal. They will get to see backstage, and become familiar with the flow of the show. If for some reason your dancer is sick, or cannot make the dress rehearsal, they may still perform in the show.
