Dear Directors, Dancers, Parents and Friends,
Welcome to KIDS ARTISTIC REVUE – National Dance Competition! As we enter another exciting season, let us start by saying how truly grateful we are for all the incredible support. KAR realizes what an honor it is to be recognized as “America’s Favorite Dance Competition,” and we will continue to set the bar high by producing the best competition possible. That being said, we are excited to unveil our plans for 2014. We’ve been working diligently to create new ideas that are sure to exceed your expectations and make your experience at KAR even greater!
As you may already know, KAR is dedicated to recognizing and encouraging dancers all across the country. Our stages will be shared by thousands of dancers with a wide range of ages, talents and abilities, who will all have their moment to shine in a positive, rewarding, and exhilarating setting. We will also acknowledge the achievements and excellence of teachers, choreographers, and parents, whose hard work and commitment deserves equal attention. At KAR, we recognize the sacrifice and endless hours invested to be part of our competition. That being said, we are honored to be an outlet where dedication, talent and accomplishments are celebrated!
KIDS ARTISTIC REVUE takes pride in creating opportunities for dancers. Each year, several KAR contestants are selected as “All-Star Dancers,” and receive an invitation to attend the New York City Dance Experience. These All-Stars travel to New York City for a one-of-a-kind event, where they attend a series of master classes, meet and study with the world-famous Rockettes, see Broadway shows, and of course, tour the city’s most popular attractions.
At each regional event, KAR will award scholarships for contestants to participate in the popular KAR Dance Convention. These dance conventions are fun, inspiring, and educational for all dancers. We are also excited to nominate outstanding performances to be a part of the 2014 Industry Dance Awards and Benefit Show. This amazing awards show proudly raises cancer awareness and inspires the generosity of the dance community to come together for a worthy cause.
This year KAR will host five spectacular National Finals! We will be returning to sunny Panama City, Florida, action-packed Las Vegas, Nevada and family-friendly Toledo, Ohio. We are also pleased to announce our new finals destinations in picturesque Biloxi, Mississippi and beautiful Virginia Beach, Virginia! As always, KAR National Finals will be unforgettable! With our added destinations and exciting new format, KAR finals will be more amazing than ever before! So mark your calendars and don’t miss out on being a part of this extraordinary experience.
As you join us this season be assured, we are committed to making your KAR experience simply the best. Please feel free to contact any of our team members if you have any questions or need assistance. Once again, we truly appreciate your loyalty and we wish you a fabulous season!
