Kings Dance Center is a place where my daughter Sidney has had the pleasure of flourishing and growing for the past 13 years. During this time, she has taken recreational classes and has been on the Dancer’s Unlimited Competition Team. She has been provided excellent instruction in a positive, friendly, family-oriented environment, where the teachers care about the students like their own children. Kings Dance Center has not only taught her to dance, but she has also learned life skills, such as organization, teamwork, timeliness, leadership, creativity, and that hard work pays off. The owner, Stacie Souza is incredibly supportive and provides many opportunities for the students, such as modelling, competitive dance, involvement in local Nutcracker Productions, participation in the Princess Program and in the Miss America Organization through the Miss Kings County Pageant. In addition, Sidney has also had the opportunity to perform onstage in Las Vegas with Todrick Hall, Ava Max, and has performed in a Music Video with Now United. These opportunities have provided my daughter with invaluable public speaking skills, have built her confidence and self-esteem, and she has learned to adapt to many new situations and grow. She has created many friendships and has made everlasting memories. This experience has helped my daughter in every new endeavor, and every aspect of her life. Kings Dance Center has provided her with many skills that are now helping her to succeed in every level in High School from public speaking, organization, leadership, and the ability to perform in front of her peers as a Varsity Cheerleader. I am forever grateful to Kings Dance Center for providing my daughter with quality instruction in a positive, happy environment that is very conducive to learning, and for all the amazing opportunities throughout the years!
Come Dance With Us!
Kings Dance Center was established in 1985 in Lemoore, CA, and is owned and directed by Stacie Souza. In September 2002, Kings Dance Center expanded to a second location in Hanford. In the July of 2020, KDC opened a BRAND NEW BUILDING in Hanford! Each studio is equipped with Ballet Barres, full length mirrors, high-quality sound systems and floating dance floor. Our lobby has large viewing windows where the parents can watch their dancers take class. Kings Dance Center has trained hundreds of students over its 38 year history, with many of them achieving professional dance careers in the entertainment industry, theatre, Broadway and Ballet across the country and abroad. Because of the staff’s dedication, talent and love for dance, Kings Dance Center continues to be a tremendous asset to the children of our community.
Who We Are…
My girls are going into their 5th year of dance; I love to see how much dance and the KDC family has impacted my girls lives… I enjoy seeing my girls grow into young women and the strength and self confidence that dance has helped to instill into my daughters. I appreciate when the girls reach an accomplishment in dance that they are trying to attain and the satisfaction that it brings to them! I am a widowed father and I appreciate that dance gives my girls another outlet to be surrounded by positive female energy and role models. Stacie and her staff run a first class organization and I would highly recommend Kings Dance Center to anyone that would like to see their child grow as an individual in a fun, safe setting!

My daughter has been dancing at Kings Dance Center for 13 years and I would highly recommend this studio. KDC not only provides quality dance instruction, they also help build confidence in young people and help them learn and practice life skills that will serve them well in their future. Much of my child’s successes are a result of her time at KDC. Her education at this studio helps her in the dance studio, the classroom and in life.

I have danced at KDC for 5 years. I also have had the privilege to be a part of the Dancers Unlimited competition team. This past year I was on the teaching staff as well. As I’m about to head off to college I can say without a doubt I’m definitely going to miss being part of this studio. I took class from many of the teachers and they all had different teaching techniques as well as different styles of dance. Because of their differences I have become a more versatile and adaptable dancer and person. Their love for dance has inspired me to continue to dance in college. I will for sure be coming back to take classes every chance I get. This studio has become my home away from home and I would not have wanted to spend these last 5 years dancing anywhere else.
