KJ Dance Designs, owned and directed by Kristy Ulmer Blakeslee, has been in Plano, Texas since 1993.

The mission of KJ is to focus on each individual by teaching grace, poise and selflessness. KJ provides a safe nurturing environment where dance is the vessel by which a child can gain self esteem and valuable skills including teamwork and leadership. Our program teaches honesty, integrity, loyalty and dedication through the art of dance.

The KJ staff is committed to keeping standards high and constantly reinventing creative and exciting teaching techniques. Here, students excel in their development as young adults. 

Its a dancer's world at KJ. Whether you are a serious dancer seeking to develop your art or a recreational dancer seeking exercise and fun, there is no better place than KJ Dance.
