Welcome to KCDS Competition Team

February 24 - Kix 'N Rhythm

At this point in our dance year all our Dancers and Parents  will have signed the 2017/18 Competition Team Guidelines and returned them to the studio office. Thank you.

A message to our Competition Families:

Attendance: Please remember attendance is crucial to this process. With class numbers, you can imagine how productive classes would be if everyone missed a couple classes a year. Class time is important. Each week in class choreography is taught and reviewed.    It is very hard on dancers with solid attendance to have material from previous classes re-taught because students were absent. Your teacher is willing to go over things, but going over choreography is not the same as teaching it the first time. Please do all you can to learn it the first time around. Students are expected to be on time for their classes.  A good idea is to arrive a few minutes early and then dancers are able to be ready to start immediately when the previous class is over.


Performances/Competitions: We work very hard to give you the maximum amount of notice we possibly can for upcoming performances. Competition dates are listed above. It is expected that all students will be available for these dates. Having students miss competitions is a huge problem that impacts every dancer on our competition team. We work hard to give you dates early to ensure this does not happen. Missing performances can cause the the piece pulled and not performed. It is not pleasant to be learning new spacing and choreography just before performances.  It defeats the purpose of all the hard work done before hand. If you think there is a chance you may be away during the following dates, please let us know immediately. Please check your schedules carefully. Last minute surprises are not welcome.  We are looking forward to an exciting year!
