Our Team focus at KIO!:

  1. Working with team mates is key for success.
  2. Performing in front of an audience can be fun and help with building confidence.
  3. Gracefully receiving feedback is necessary and using that feedback for improvement is important.
  4. Appreciation for dance as an art and understanding the competition experience is about growing as a dancer through skill and maturity.
  5. Displaying sportsmanlike conduct at all times is very important.
  6. The art of dance translates into valuable skills and friendships that will last a lifetime!

 

 

 

Competitive dance is for the dedicated dancer that is able and willing to put in their time & energy that is necessary for success.  Our team travels regionally and out of state once a year for a national event.

KIO Customer testimonials

I’ve been going there for three years for Zumba, Zumba Toning and also Pound fitness classes. My daughter has taken ballet classes there and loved it! She had her first recital in 2014. Such a great and comfortable place to work out and take my daughter to dance. Highly recommend it!
