During the 11-week dance program—which meets for one hour once a week—kids learn the fundamental steps of ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, or hip-hop dance. Meanwhile, the four-day Once Upon a Time camp transports youngsters to an imaginary world where they'll take on the roles of singing, dancing mythical creatures. Students will also break into small groups to craft their own fairy tale, which they'll perform for family members on the last day of camp. The five-day Bring It camp gathers kids of all ages and skill levels together to learn new dance steps under experienced instructors. Students cap off the week with a recital that reflects the many genres of dance they've studied.
Children get the opportunity to spread social awareness in the five-day No Bullies! Get Real! camp, during which they'll learn song and dance routines that explore solutions to the issue of bullying. The camp's outstanding performers will be chosen to participate in a small group ensemble that will travel to locations throughout the community to spread their positive message.
Carol Sottosanti inherited her love of hitting high notes and cutting rugs from her father, an opera singer who inspired her to pursue a degree in vocal performance from the University of Arizona. Naturally, Carol wanted her children to also experience the beauty and exhilaration of performing on stage, but she couldn't find a program that would grant her kids the proper exposure and practice they needed. Teaming up with other moms in the community, Carol organized a few small shows starring the neighborhood's charismatic children, and subsequently, Kids Unlimited was born. Since its inception in 1986, KU Studios still produces shows regularly, preparing their young performers with various classes in vocal performance, dance, and acting. Aspiring triple threats can dive into a wide variety of camps designed to hone singing and dancing skills, while promoting awareness of important topics such as bullying or the proliferation of mimes in Tucson. KU's outstanding performers earn their way into small-group ensembles that perform regularly throughout the community.
