WE NEED YOUR HELP! THE TIME TO SUPPORT IS NEARING AN END!


KJ Dance is a partner with Traveling Tutus.

They also need funds donated to facilitate the shipping costs of getting these dance supplies to their intended destinations. "Sharing the joy of dance around the world."


We are asking that our KJ families will set the coin boxes somewhere at home, and collect coins during the month of through November 8th. There is information on each box for them to return their box with coins to the studios October 28 - November 8. During the "box return" dates, we will also be accepting donated costumes, dance shoes, and new tights as well....making this a "Costume and Coin Collection Event" ! Thank you for your support and please reach out if you have any questions!
