Since 1978, under the direction of Kathi Agovino, KDS has been dedicated in cultivating an environment which encourages our students to express their individuality through dance.
Here at KDS we offer a creative dance program, taught by highly accredited faculty, emphasizing on technical quality and creative expression in dance. We aim to provide our students with the very best and most comprehensive dance instruction. We place a focus on quality training and education, developing strong technique and ability, all while leading fun and inspirational choreography for all ages and levels of dance. We ensure that our students will flourish in a loving and affirming environment that fosters dedication, discipline, and a life-long passion for dance. Our goal is to engage each student and let them experience the studio as it is meant to be… a place for them to feel free to dance and be who they want to be. We strive to encourage all students to challenge themselves both mentally and physically while maintaining a fun environment that allows them to explore their creativity and the art of movement.
For starters, our facility has three state of the art dance studios with surround sound, central air, wall to wall mirrors and top of the line floating floors. Secondly, KDS has welcomed an array of instructors who each received their training from a wide range of dance institutions. These choreographers came from education programs such as, Alvin Alley Dance Center, Creative and Performing Arts (C.A.P.A.), Performing Arts School (P.A.S.), Philadanco, Philadelphia Civic Ballet, Philadelphia Charter School, Thomas School of Dance, and University of the Arts of Philadelphia. Not only have our instructors came from these institutions, KDS has helped in guiding many students to audition and land themselves in the above mentioned schools. We have had students and instructors leave to follow their dreams and dance for Disney World, as back up for several vocal artists, and dance in New York City. At KDS, we ensure that your child will have an experience they will never forget.
