Performance VS Competition Studio?
What makes our studio unique at Kimberton Dance Academy?
At KDA, we consider ourselves a performance based studio as we do not participate in dance competitions. So what does this mean? Do our students still have the opportunity to perform beyond just our annual recital? Of course! We offer our students performance opportunities in a non-competitive environment and participate in community based festivals that promote comradery amongst fellow dancers and studios. To learn more about these opportunities, visit our Performance Company page.
