The MKDS Company will travel to the Sooner State this weekend to compete in Tribute National Talent Competition held annually at Robson Performing Arts Center.  With over 500 entries, our dancers will compete alongside some of the best studios and dancers in the South.  

Our dancers make it look easy, but it takes hours of practice to prepare for competition season!  MKDS Company members begin this work in July by participating in a week long intensive clinic where they sharpen their skills and learn various combinations.  This intensive assists our teachers in forming groups and by August, we are ready to start choreography!  Week after week our dancers give their all in choreography classes as well as ballet and technique classes with the goal of representing MKDS and the state of Arkansas at the very highest level.  

At MKDS we believe firmly in the total package!  While our dancers are busy mastering choreography, our costume director, Kim Marak works tirelessly to create the perfect costume and a phenomenal group of parents build props that take many of our pieces to the next level.  


We couldn't do any of this without the support of our parents!  From rhinestoning costumes to shuttling their children to and from the studio multiple times a week, these moms and dads love and support their children, our staff and MKDS!  We can't thank you enough for sharing your children with us!  They are the reason we do what we do!  

From tap, jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, modern and hip hop our dancers do it all with a smile on their face and a love for dance and their MKDS family in their hearts!   We are beyond excited for them to take the stage this weekend!  

Follow all the action this weekend on Twitter and Instagram @mskarensdance and don't forget to tag your pictures this weekend with #MKDS2018TRIBUTE  

Let's show everyone just how fierce MKDS is!
