KLJ Movement (KLJM) is known for providing performance opportunities to aspiring artists, dancers, and movement artists. Therefore, anyone looking to get involved must be enrolled in at least one technique class. Youth, starting at the age of 4 and up, are eligible to enroll in the training seasons as Company Scholars. Enrollment occurs throughout the summer months starting in June and closing in September (dates may vary). Enrollment forms are digital must be completed to secure registration. The season is in alignment with the academic calendar, beginning in September and concluding in June (including breaks). In the fall (September - December), scholars spend the weeks developing dance skills in ballet, modern, hip hop, African influenced movement, and performance skills. During the spring months (January - June) scholars learn routines to perform at their annual production titled, Summer Interlude. In every class, company scholars will learn from instructors that have had formal training in the styles.
Since KLJM is a performance based company, we have an adult performance company. The performance season is audition based only and auditions are held on a rolling basis. Auditioning participants must be 18 years old and older. Selected incoming Company members are asked to pledge 1 year commitment to the company. Company members develop skill sets as professional dancers, choreographers, instructors, and much more in fields of commercial dance or performing arts.
KLJ Movement strives to create an equitable space for all people; therefore, we are currently looking for funding that offers scholarships to those that may not be able to afford enrollment. Other updates about scholarship opportunities will be announced at a later date.
