Young children learn a lot through play, especially with games they can play freely in open spaces. Kids dance classes have a number of physical and emotional benefits for young dancers, while creating an environment they enjoy. The skills that children learn in kids dance classes help them to become more open, attentive and well-rounded adults. Dance is a precise art that requires dedication, focus and team work.
One of the most important aspects of a good dance school is having an outstanding selection of dance teachers. A dance teacher acts as a reflection of the school as a whole, and as main support for students and parents. At KaliAndrews Dance Company, our dance teachers are highly regarded and qualified teachers that we are proud to support. There are many qualities we look for in a dance teacher, many of which are the same qualities you look for as well.
Every year, each of our dancers has the opportunity to take a dance examination at his/her grade level. Exams are mandatory for members of KADC's Competitive Team but are optional for recreational dancers. Examination days at KADC take place each year during the first week of February.

Summer Dance Camp is an excellent way for busy minds and busy bodies to be kept active during the months off from school. Summer break should be exciting for children, and should allow them the time to explore their own interests outside of the schoolyard. At KaliAndrews Dance Company, we offer four separate summer dance programs to allow all dancers to explore different styles of dance at the level that’s right for each individual. We want to make sure that everyone can participate in dance camp regardless of past experience, and make their summer a break to remember!
