My family relocated to Texas four years ago. Anyone who has relocated a family knows about having to reestablish just about everything in your life - doctors, dentists, schools, etc. And anyone who has relocated a family with a dancer knows how it feels to leave behind a beloved dance studio and start again with a new studio. Finding a new studio for my daughter was high on the priority list upon arriving in Plano and there were many to choose from. We visited several, but none felt like home - that is until we visited KJ Dance. We were immediately greeted by Becky at the front desk and taken in with the beautiful, clean and comfortable look of the studio. Becky not only welcomed us to KJ Dance but to the great state of Texas. She took her time explaining the schedule and the studio to us and she patiently answered our questions. We knew immediately that we had found a new dance studio home. KJ Dance’s incredibly talented owner and staff have nurtured my daughter in ways beyond improving her dance technique. It is not an exaggeration to say that my daughter has also grown in her grace, poise, selflessness and confidence since joining the studio. I am thankful every time I drop off my daughter at KJ Dance for the opportunity we have to be a part of the KJ family!
