“Kia’s FR Dance’s is approved by Washoe County School District as a provider for Supervised Curriculum in Physical Education. Dance classes can be signed off for PE credit.”
Kia’s FR Dance has presented 3 original productions in our FR exclusive Library Series in which, through various story-lines, we bring books to life! We have featured, thus far, 23 books, from childhood favorites to the classics and authors from Dr. Seuss to Edgar Allen Poe! This workshop will be a testing ground, of sorts, for our upcoming 2016 production – “Jack and the Bookstack!” Any camp attendee who is interested in performing in the production in the fall will be cast in the show. We will be holding open auditions on Saturday, July 30 – 10:00 – 11:00 (ages 4-6), 11:00 – 12:00 (ages 7-10), and 12:00 – 1:00 (ages 11+). There will be a make-up audition Saturday, August 20 for those who could not attend the first audition.
Follow up on Artown’s Discover Tap: Kia, Lane, and Logan were a great success at Artown’s Discover Tap! Kids of all ages – and their parents – learned about rhythm, how to count music half-time, straight-time, and double-time, that tappers use 8 points on their feet to become a percussive instrument, and even learned a short tap combination. We’re ready to take Discover Tap on the road!
Kia, Lane Saunders, and Logan Strand have been invited to be a part of Artown’s up-coming “Discover” program for July 2016. They will be teaching up to 60 curious 6 to 12 year olds how to Tap Dance! It will be held at the McKinley Arts & Culture Center. Details will be in the Artown events booklet and announced here when date and times are confirmed.
We are honored that Kia’s FR Dance has provided the “Santa Tappers” (Rockette-style tapping kick line) for the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra for over 10 years. This year, in addition to our traditional tap line, we also provided long-legged Jazz dancers as part of the RPO’s live entertainment. Dancers do not have to be FR students. Rehearsals start in October and the shows are the first weekend of December. It is a privilege to perform on stage backed by a FULL orchestra! Please contact Kia if you are interested.
