The dance revue completes our year of study and lets the parents see how their child has progressed throughout the year while exposing the student to performing and giving them a sense of professionalism.
What Makes a KKD Revue Different?
- Professional production with entertaining choreography and a focus on technique for all levels of dancers, toddlers to teen, beginner to advanced, recreational to competitive. Our babies dance!
- Reserved front-row seating where parents can watch, photograph, and video their dancer’s routines.
- No ad or cover girl contests. Economical and drama-free.
- We assign seats with a seating lottery. You don’t need to buy ads or camp out for great seats.
- Great views from every seat enhanced by 2 full-size video screens to view dancers
- Tasteful, detailed, and appropriate costumes
- Our students are the stars of the show!
2023 Dance Revue Dates
Mark your calendars! Please keep these dates in mind when making your 2023 vacation plans!
Our 2023 revues are scheduled for:
Destrehan Revue – Monday, June 12
Kenner Revue – Tuesday, June 13
Mandeville Revue – Wednesday, June 14
All shows will begin at 6:30pm. Doors open one hour before showtime.
Stage rehearsal will be held for all locations during the day on Sunday at the Ponchartrain Center.
Sunday, June 11
Rehearsal schedules have been emailed and are available in Parent Portal.
Stage Rehearsal is MANDATORY. Stage rehearsal is very important because it enables the students to become familiar with the stage and performing in front of an audience. If a prop is being used, we ask that it is brought to the rehearsal.
Wear appropriate dance clothing, NOT costumes. Ballet students must wear black leotards, pink tights, and hair in a bun for ballet. Competitors should wear black.
Once the students have completed all of their dances at the rehearsal, they are free to leave.
Ticket Pick-Up Dates
Ticket, seat assignments, and revue item pick-up dates will be

Items may be picked up from any location if you are unable to make your home studio’s date/time.
You may have someone else pick up your items for you.
How Does the Revue Seat Lottery Work?
Here at KKD, you do not have to sell ads or camp out in lines to get great seats to the revue.
As long as your balance is paid in full, you will be entered into our seating lottery.
Seats are assigned per family based on a random number draw.
Families with 1 student receive 6 reserved seats/tickets.
Families with 2 students receive 8 reserved seats/tickets.
Families with 3 students receive 10 reserved seats/tickets.
Extra general admission tickets will be available for $10 at the ticket pick-ups and the rehearsal. And will be sold for $15 at the door. No additional reserved seats may be purchased.
Students who perform in multiple nights of shows will be given 2 additional general admission tickets per additional night, but no additional reserved seats. This provides 2 tickets for each extra night: one for the student and one for a parent.
Students DO need a ticket to enter the revue each night.
Babies/toddlers under 3 do not need their own ticket but must sit in a lap.
Parents are able to sit in the front row during their child’s dances to watch, photograph, and video their routines up close. Space is limited. No siblings or extended family in the front row, please.
Does each studio location get its own revue?
Since we have 3 studio locations, we do hold 3 revues.
All 3 revues are held at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner.
Does my child get to/have to dance in 3 revues?
The majority of our students only dance in their home studio recital.
This year, all ballet classes will only perform in their studio’s revue with the exception of the leads. The leads will dance in all 3 revues.
Dancers invited to participate in the opening number will perform in all 3 revues.
Since competition routines combine students from all 3 studios, some competition numbers may perform in multiple revues. This is dependent on revue timing and costume change considerations.
