DKG COMPETITION COMPANY
Our competition company, DKG was started
in 2001, by Ms.Donna and her two daughters,
Keri and Gigi.. ( this is where the DKG name came
from..Donna, the D.. Keri, the K.. and Gigi/Jenelle
the G!! ) Ms. Donna's "dance daughter", Priscilla
was also added to share her expertice with the
'mini's'!!!! Together, they made the company that's
still going strong today!!
Our teachers are commited to bringing out the
best in our competition dancers by encouraging them
to become well rounded in all forms and styles of
dance.. We dont just teach our company dances, we
offer closed classes for just them weekly! We hold our
DKG classes on Monday nights, and require them to
participate in ballet, lyrical/contemporary, and jazz
technique classes during the week.. This helps them to
become technically strong, and introduces them to various styles from different instructors..
Our Company attends four to five competitions in one season, and attends Nationals every other year. We try to support competitions in our area to save our dance family the travel expenses! And now, with the new Convention Center located in Biloxi, this is becoming easier to do!
We hold our company auditions every year in May, so we can begin extra or outside choergraphy during the summer. We also offer a make up audition session later in the year, for those who miss out on the first one. Dancers are taught peices of choregraphy in a morning session, the return later in the day for the actual audition.. All done in a positive and nurturing manner, to keep things kid friendly and fun! Groups will be formed after auditions to place each dancer where their growth is most promising!!
