KMC Show Unit
Our Show Unit groups are our competition lines. They meet one a week for an hour and a half. We have 4 different show unit classes . They learn 4 dances that they compete with in the spring and perform in the spring recital. They will learn a tap, jazz, ballet or open number and a production number. They also are required to take 2 additional ballet technique classes each month. We structure our show unit groups so our dancers can also be involved in other sports/activities. In fact, over 75% of our show unit dancers are involved in another activity outside of the studio. Our show unit dancers have two mandatory competitions in the spring and one that is optional. Our show unit groups consistently place in the top 10 at competitions and have been the recipients of many special judges awards. We have dances that we are proud to say are regional and national first in category award winners. We believe that teaching our dancers to give back to their community with their talent is also important so we go to local care centers/senior living centers during the holiday season to perform a holiday show for the residents. We are involved in many activities in the community throughout the year and we award a special community service award to our dancers who go above and beyond helping at these events. While we focus on quality dances and technique with our competition lines, we also believe in helping to make our students great at more than just dancing.

option for our show unit dancers.

third one that is optional. They also perform

Our lyrical dancers expand their technique
and build their stage presence and
confidence by learning how to interpret
the feeling of a song/lyrics through
their body movements. It is a beautiful
and moving form of dance to watch.
Our lyrical program
dancers have won top honors at many
competitions and have been given judges
awards for their grace and storytelling.
Our Contemporary program is another
branch of our competition line options.
Once a dancer has enrolled in our lyrical
program, they may then have an
evaluation to be a part of our
cotemporary line. These dances are the
perfect blend of grace and strength. They
blend the beauty and storytelling of
lyrical with the strength and intensity of
acro tricks and partnering work. The
contemporary dances compete at four
competitions in the spring and also
perform in the annual recital. Since our
contemporary lines were started, they
have consistently taken top honors
Our Pointe line is another
specialized line that branches out
from our competition lines.
Students interested in this form
of dance first start taking pointe
technique classes that meet once a
week. Once they have developed the
strength, consistency in movement,
skill set and proper technique they
are then ready to perform as part of
our pointe line. The pointe students
compete at three competitions in
the spring and also perform in our
spring recital and holiday shows.
Pointe work is an extremely discipled
form of dance with classes that
involve a lot of repetition to work on muscle memory.
Our pointe dancers have been the category winners at competitions
