Testimonials
Dear Kim & Kyla,
After experiencing my first dance competition as a dance mom this past weekend, I feel compelled to put pen to paper, and thank you both and your staff and family members that make K&K such a wonderful dance company. I am proud to have a daughter dancing with your studio.
The standards you insist upon are visible on and off the stage and set your company apart from the others.
I found all of your dancers (and parents) to be very polite and friendly. I was impressed at the comradery between dancers how they supported and encouraged each other, they also were extremely well mannered and considerate towards other people/dancers in the theatre.
The costumes that you so carefully choose for the dancers are modest and age appropriate, but still look modern/classy and professional. As a parent I really appreciate this.
The performances were amazing and looked (again) professional and polished, it is clear the amount of time and thought that is put into these.
Please convey my sincerest thanks to all concerned, we are lucky to have found and belong to such a fantastic dance company.
Dance Parent & student
K&K Teachers
Just wanted to say a big thanks for what all of you do each and every week and for being such great dance instructors. (My girls) both love dance and are learning so much from you. They are not only learning to dance from top-notch dance instructors but they are also learning valuable life skills like teamwork and self-confidence. Again, many thanks and we're looking forward to another great and fun season come September!
K&K Parent
To K&K,
From the first time we arrived at K&K we were so much more than just another student in another class. Instructors all knew my child, knew what she was capable of, and recommended classes based on her skills and abilities, not just simply on her age. They take the time and effort with all their students, be they recreational or competitive, and create programs and routines that will best suit the students. We have been at 2 other studios and this is by far the best! The teachers are consistent year after year, the owners are always there to answer questions and take care of any arising issues. The kids learn tons and they have fun doing it. They had so much fun that I joined the adult tap group and have had an awesome time. The studio is very organized, classes run on time and for the full length of the class. At competitions emphasis is always placed on doing your best and supporting everyone (not just those from our studio!) to also do their best. The bonds of friendship that have formed between my daughter and her teammates (as well as me and the other parents!) are strong and lasting. We look forward to dancing there for many more years to come!

Dear K&K
We have been with K&K for five years which pretty much says it all. Top-notch dance instruction (from striking the right balance between wanting students to reach their potential and wanting them to enjoy dance), a caring environment, great communication, very approachable...all of the above keeps us coming back year after year!

Dear Kim, Kyla and K&K Dancers
Being new to the competitive team this year we did not know what to expect going to our first competition this weekend. Needless to say, we all felt a little anxious and nervous .We all would like to express our thanks to Kim and Kyla for all the effort, support and endless hours that you put in. Your attention to detail is brilliant!
Secondly, we wanted to let the competitive dancers know how proud we were to be amongst your company. You showed us what it was like to be part of an outstanding team. Your poise, perseverance and grace were remarkable. We were also so proud of how you handled yourselves when accepting your awards. You are truly setting an amazing example to the young dancers who are entering this magical world we call dance!!!
Kim and Kyla, thank you for allowing us this wonderful opportunity!

Dear Kim & Kyla,
Thanks so much for another great year of dance! I have had so much fun and learned so much since September! No matter what has happened that day, going to dance always makes everything seem so much better. I can’t wait to see what next season brings!

Thanks,

To Kim & Kyla,
Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity of working for your amazing studio! You are so dedicated and passionate and have done a phenomenal job not only running a studio but also teaching the most important values to your students.

Dear Kim & Kyla,
Thank you and to all the K&K Competitive dancers who performed at the Musicfest 2012 Benefit show for the Centre for Dreams. Your support is greatly appreciated! All the dancers did an amazing job!

Sincerely,

Belinda Reyes // Show Organizer
To Kyla,
Thank you so much for everything you\'ve done throughout the past 6 years. You are a great teacher and you never fail to show me the humour in dance! I will always remember your song & dance classes. We had so much fun and treated every competition like a big party! Not only were you tons of fun but you also helped me grow into the person I am today. You helped me overcome my fears and gain self-confidence. You also taught me one of the most important lessons, not to take life too seriously. I also want to thank you for all the extra things you\'ve done for me such as let me assist with classes and use you as a reference. Although small, it meant a lot to me and will help me in the future. It was great having someone like you to look up to during the years. You\'ve inspired me so much and I someday wish to be as successful as you. It will be hard not seeing you every week but I promise to stay in touch! See you soon!

Love,
K&K graduating student
To Kim,
We are all close however I feel I have a special bond with you in particular. I think it is because I shared so many first experiences with you; my first solo, the first duet with my sister, first time assisting with a class and so many others. You are a great role model and you can\'t imagine how grateful I am to have known you so well throughout the past 6 years. I will always remember my first tap solo. I was so shy and barely made any sounds with my taps, but you never gave up on me. And lo and behold, it worked! All my fears and lack of self-confidence seemed to disappear, and I have you to thank for that. Through all your love and support, you helped me grow not only as a dancer but as a person. I aspire to someday be as kind, intelligent and creative as you are. The story of how you created K&K is truly inspiring and has taught me to always follow my heart, a lesson I will use throughout my life. You\'ve done so much for me and truthfully I don\'t know how to thank you enough. I will miss not seeing you every week and having you there before and after I go on stage. I was an honour being a K&K dancer and even though that part is over, I know I will be a part of the K&K family forever. See you soon!

Love,
K&K graduating student
To the K&K Faculty,
If you\'ve taught me for 12 years, or 2 years, regardless...thank-you so much for everything. The K&K team has become my 2nd family and my home away from home! I\'ll miss everyone so much, but I won\'t ever be a stranger. The staff at K&K has made the last 12 years of my life absolutely incredible. All of you are amazing role models for myself and dancers of all ages. I can\'t express how grateful I am and begin to describe all you have taught me. Everything I\'ve learned from you, I will carry with me forever. Thank-you for everything, I wish you continued success.

To the K&K Faculty,
\"I have danced with K&K for 6 years now. This is my last dance recital before University and I wanted to take this time to thank Kim and Kyla for giving me the opportunity to be the best dancer I could possibly be. I made the decision 6 years ago to travel all the way from Alliston to Markham, 4 times a week, for dance instruction under Kim and Kyla. I knew from the first day that I made the right decision. The atmosphere at the studio is amazing and the friendships I have made here, I am sure will last forever. Kim and Kyla: The hard work and dedication you and your staff give to each one of us is very much appreciated. We all know that when we step out on stage that we are fully prepared with a well-choreographed number. You have never let us down. I am truly going to miss everyone here. You are like family. Thank you again for everything. K & K Dance Dreamz is truly the BEST DANCE STUDIO EVER!\"

To Kim & Kyla,
A well-organized dance studio is somewhat of a rarity. A well-organized studio with talented, friendly teachers, a warm team atmosphere, and a focus on producing well-rounded dancers across the board is even more rare. K&K is both - and that makes THEM a rarity. You won\'t be disappointed.

To the K&K Faculty,
If you want AGE appropriate choreography and a studio that believes you don\'t need to show skin to win. I\'m very happy to have my family dance at K & K Dance Dreamz.
K&K Dance Dreamz Parent
Dear Kim, Kyla, Cheryl, Mrs. Dixon & everyone at K&K,
For the past two years I have watched my girls become more confident dancers under your direction. It is clear why your school has been growing strongly since your opening.
Sure, you have excellent teaching skills, firm and gentle discipline, warm personalities, great studio, etc. The school offers a great variety of classes and times, wonderful costumes and an exceptional year-end show. All of that goes without saying.
What really makes K&K different is that it feels like home...All of you go “above and beyond” to help the kids learn and grow to become confident young people.

Regards,
K&K Dance Dreamz Parent

Dear Kim & Kyla,
I thank you for bringing out (my daughter’s) personality and for greatly improving her technique and showmanship. We were thrilled with the music selections, the choreography and costuming. Kim and Kyla, you have the magic touch for getting kids ready for competition feeling confident, composed and happy. You gave so much of yourselves to our family and we are so grateful…Sincerely, we thank you for everything… You win the best overall in the amazing people category every time. You’re the BEST!
K&K Dance Dreamz Parent
To Kim & Kyla,
Thank-you for all your support and guidance. You both have made me feel very welcomed and appreciated, which is why I truly enjoy working here.
K&K Dance Dreamz Teacher
To Kim & Kyla,
Thank-you for 2 wonderful years at K&K Dance Dreamz. Although it was tough for me getting into the competition mode and learning how to take on a new set of responsibilities, you two have always been there to support and encourage me through it all. From my first summer classes…to the many rehearsals and competitions, you have taught me more than good technique, but (also) performance skills and a true appreciation for a variety of dance forms. Without you two I don’t think I would have been able to pursue dance at university. Thanks for the support, encouragement and fun times, and congrats on two years of success at K&K Dance Dreamz!
K&K Dance Dreamz Senior Student
