KIO! 2017-2018 Competitive Team
Our Team focus at KIO!:
- Working with team mates is key for success.
- Performing in front of an audience can be fun and help with building confidence.
- Gracefully receiving feedback is necessary and using that feedback for improvement is important.
- Appreciation for dance as an art and understanding the competition experience is about growing as a dancer through skill and maturity.
- Displaying sportsmanlike conduct at all times is very important.
- 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.
