Our STUDIO EVENT CALENDAR is a live resource that can help all KJ students and families stay up to date and informed of important studio happenings. All holidays, upcoming events, workshops, performances, studio rentals, deadlines, and special training opportunities taking place at KJ have been added to the calendar. This calendar displays information for all dancers training in our weekly TWC program, VIBE Hip Hop Crews, and THE PULSE DANCE COMPANIES.
KJ Dance Designs, owned and directed by Kristy Ulmer Blakeslee, has been in Plano, Texas since 1993. In 2014, we opened the doors to our second location in Frisco, Texas. The KJ Dance VIRTUAL TRAINING EXPERIENCE was launched in March of 2020 and will continue to be an online educational dance platform available to new and existing students. Our class schedule for fall has been released providing both in studio face-to-face and virtual training opportunities in all subjects. Our Fall classes begin on August 17 and will run through the end of May.
Studio Life at KJ is known as #THEKJWAY. We are committed to keeping standards high and constantly reinventing creative and exciting teaching techniques. Here, students excel in their development as young adults. It’s 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.
Each month, dancers are hand selected by the KJ Faculty, as the 3C Students of the Month. The 3C's of Character, Competence & Compassion, are modeled by these chosen students both in and outside the studio.
As KJ Dance continues to grow and evolve, the desire to link our current and alumni dancers together for a common purpose has become an exciting reality.
KJ alumni graduates from 1981-2020 have joined this elite group and are excited to support the mission and purpose of the association.
