Unfortunately, the start of the Kainos Dance winter/spring 2014 dance session must be rescheduled. The new dance session start date is Saturday, February 1, 2014 (11:30 AM-12:30 PM). We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
We would like to thank everyone who supported our t-shirt fundraiser. Fifty-four of our t-shirts were purchased, and you helped to raise over $500 for our spring 2014 dance presentation. God is good!
We are blessed to have such support from the local Richmond, VA community as well as Florida, New York, The state of Washington, Texas, Georgia and Panama (Country). If I missed your location, please forgive me.
The funds will go towards purchasing t-shirts and streamers for our dance students. We will also continue to work on making sure that each dancer has a pair of ballet shoes in time for the spring presentation (March 29th). We have partnered with a non-profit company named “Heels In Harmony” in order to make this a possibility.
Again, thank you! May God continue to bless you and your family in the new year!
“The voice on the phone belonged to Masazumi Chaya, the associate artistic director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and he had a startling proposition. Would she — Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish, 55 years old, former Ailey superstar and current artificial-hip owner — come out of retirement to dance at a special performance on New Year’s Eve?”
Every year Kainos Dance has a final presentation in the spring, and every presentation always improves upon the last. One area we have never lacked in is spirit, passion and a desire for excellence. The area we have always struggled in is uniforms and costumes. Does God still show up during the presentations? Yes! But, this year we would like to make sure that each of our students has a dance uniform as well as colorful costumes and streamers. Please check out the link below to take part in our fundraiser. Thank you!
“If American Ballet Theatre has its way, its beautiful soloist will soon become even more well-known. Ms. Copeland, who is African-American, is helping launch Project Plié, a national initiative to be announced Friday that is aimed at boosting diversity within ballet.”

Praise dancing is not always the pretty, the perfect, a flowing skirt.
It shows the freeing release from a past hurt.
Taking flight through the air with faith in your heart.
Stepping forward in motion with a hidden spark.
Stretching toward heaven with a powerful praise.
Listening to the gospel beat for the rest of your days.
Praise dance should show a surrender, a struggle, a journey, a pressing through. Praise dancing should show the power of God moving in you.
