What is the usual season cycle? Can I join the group mid-way?
The usual season starts in January and runs until June of the same year. The season may be extended to November if it is a special year, such as in 2018 when the company celebrated its 25th year anniversary. You may join the group at any time, but it is encouraged that you participate in any workshops or open rehearsals offered before the new season starts.
When does the KP Kids Program usually run? What are the age groups?
The KP Kids Program usually has a Spring and/or Fall session. There are 3 age groups for the program, namely 5-8 year olds, 9-12 year olds and 13-16 year olds. The groups are determined by instruction retention and may be combined based on the session’s rehearsal plan.
How do I register for the main company or enrol my child(ren) for the KP Kids program?
You can register yourself or enrol your child using our contact form. Make sure to check our news listing for up to date information about an upcoming season. You may also sign up for our newsletter (see bottom of the page) to get the latest updates for both the main company and KP Kids program.
What are the rehearsal schedules?
The main company typically holds rehearsals every Sunday, except for holiday weekends, from 2 to 5 pm. Closer to a major event such as an upcoming stage performance, additional rehearsals may be scheduled on a different day of the week and for a longer time, as needed. The KP Kids program may vary depending on registration information, but typically runs for one hour after school.
Where are the rehearsals located?
The main company rehearses at The Dance Center in Vancouver. Additional locations may be used within the Greater Vancouver Area in the event that no studio is available at The Dance Center. The KP Kids program for the Vancouver session is also held at The Dance Center and the Surrey session at the Panorama School of Dance Ridge Studio.
What types of performances are you available for and what are your rates?
A unique KP performance can be designed to fit your special occasion, large or small. A typical performance can run for around 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 45 minutes depending on your needs, and the rates will vary accordingly. For more information regarding performance requests as well how to book the group for your event, please use our booking form.
What are your payment terms and method of payment for the performances?
For event or function performances, we request 50% of the total fee as down payment once we confirm that we are able to accommodate your request. We would then take the remaining balance on the day of the event or function. Cheques are preferred, but we also accept email eTransfers.
