We are proud to be home to Team Kick, our nationally award winning competitive dance team. This collection of dancers, both girls and boys, is an invitation/audition only group of advanced individuals who are committed to a higher level of dance training.
Kick’s competition team allows children with a passion for dance/performing opportunities to showcase their talents. We believe in teaching kids they are more than just great dancing. Dancers learn compassion, teamwork, commitment, and life skills. We teach dance to make great kids!
Team Kick dancers have performed at Walt Disney World, ABC TV, Madison Square Garden and much, much more. Team Kick has won numerous awards at both the regional and national levels including Most Entertaining, Best Choreography, Showmanship, High Score, Top Studio, Crowd Pleaser, and much more!This past season Kick won over 40 1st place overall awards!
At Kick, we instill an appreciation for other dancers and their studios. We are not out to beat anyone; we are out to motivate our dancers and faculty by exposing them to the highest caliber of talent available. Only then are we going to produce the best dancers possible.
Classes are held weekly in the Rumson and Fair Haven studios.
Why Team Kick?
The benefits of company reach far beyond just learning to dance and winning trophies. Dancers build lifelong friendships on the solid foundation of their many hours spent training, competing and socializing together. They learn the value of teamwork, to trust in each other, to depend on one another and be a reliable person themselves. These important lessons will carry them on any path they choose to take in life.
We can thank our wonderful staff for creating absolutely the best environments for these dancers to train in. Find out for yourself why these dancers are amazing…Our amazing Instructors
