KICKS’ Company Program is specifically created for those students in 1st through 12th grade who are interested in enhancing their dance knowledge, technique and experience. As a pre-professional training program focused on dedication, demonstration, character-building and competition, participation in KICKS’ Company ensures life-lessons, as well as dance-lessons.
The Company Program is an accelerated program option for disciplined students choosing dance as their priority activity. Company students will spend more hours per week inside the classroom, therefore ensuring their ability to truly master the technique of dance. Dancers ready to commit more time to their education will, in turn, receive additional and higher level opportunities in the Company Program.
It is our goal to instill in our students a passion for performing rather than merely the desire to win awards. With this in mind, Company members will be given many different outlets to learn, grow and share their talents. In addition to regional competitions, students will attend workshops, participate in collaborative festivals & fundraiser performances, and prepare for larger exposure performances like Disney World.
We believe that achieving a high level of expertise in the area of dance is the first step in achieving a strong sense of self. In addition to the dance skills gained Company members will discover how to work as a team; will attain higher levels of organization & time management skills; will learn about goal setting and gain an understanding of how to push beyond their comfort zones. These are just a few of the skills that will carry forward into every area of their life, regardless of whether or not they decide to pursue a future career in the field of dance.
