Competitive Programs

At K&K we have a range of programs to suit you and your dancer. We offer both Full-Time and Part-Time Programs (ranging from 1 to 5 days per week). Competitive dance is both fun and challenging and involves a great deal of commitment from both dancers and parents. While the selection process focuses on technique and potential, all students must demonstrate self-motivation, a strong work ethic, active listening and a love of performing. We understand that all students develop and improve at different rates. That said, each year dancers will be re-evaluated to determine their program placement.

We compete at 4-5 competitions in the spring of each season (dates range from late February through May). All competitions are within a 1.5-2 hour drive maximum. We are extremely organized and you will be informed of all dates, rehearsals etc. well in advance! Inquire for further information regarding our competitive programs or to schedule a placement appointment.


Annual Recital

All recreational and competitive dancers will participate in our year-end recital at the Flato Markham Theatre in June. The annual recital is an opportunity for dancers to showcase their accomplishments and learnings from the dance season.


Audition

Acceptance into our Competitive Dance Program is by audition or invitation only; however, please inform the directors if your child is interested in competing. We offer both Full-Time and Part-Time Programs (ranging from 1 to 5 days per week). For new students who are interested in auditioning for our Competitive Program (Full & Part time programs available), please call us directly to schedule an audition/placement appointment.

 
 

 
 
 

Class descriptions

K&K Dance offers recreational and competitive programs across various disciplines for aspiring dancers. In every class, we deliver a fun and rewarding student experience that focuses on the development of coordination, strength, creativity and rhythm, while building self-confidence and self-discipline.

 

Ballet

Ballet is a fundamental discipline for all types of dance training. This beautiful but challenging dance form enhances technique and builds strength for all other dance classes. Ballet is mandatory for members of the K&K Dance Dreamz Inc. Competitive Company.


Tap

Let’s make some noise! Students will learn the fundamentals of both traditional and contemporary styles of tap. All classes emphasize the importance of rhythm, timing and coordination.


Musical Theatre

Musical Theatre allows students to showcase their theatrical talents, while improving expression and performance ability. The combination of drama and dance encourages students to lose their inhibitions, gain confidence and work on routines inspired by musicals, movies and/or character portrayals.


Song & Dance

This class combines vocal technique exercises with dance training to develop dancers with “Triple Threat” capabilities. It also focuses on musicality and a love for performing.


Jazz

Energetic and fast-paced, Jazz enables students to learn technique and style while improving coordination. Jazz encompasses a wide variety of styles performed to popular music, both new and old.


Lyrical

This discipline successfully merges the elegance of ballet and intensity of Jazz, with an emphasis on developing grace, expression and fluidity. It calls dancers to interpret and convey the lyrics and emotion of the music through movement.


Hip-Hop

This popular street-style dance form is constantly evolving and often seen in your favourite music videos. Inspired by culture and the latest in hip-hop music, these energetic classes improve rhythm and style, and provide a great workout too. We emphasize age appropriate music and movement.



Contemporary

This class combines elements of Jazz, Ballet and Modern Dance. It consists of innovative combinations and choreography that allow dancers to explore their own style, develop creativity and improve technique.



Acro

Acro is a specialized discipline that combines the art of gymnastics and dance. Training is focused on developing strength and flexibility. Students will begin with the basics such as back bends/bridges, front rolls and cartwheels and then progress to more difficult moves.
