First of all, we would like you to know, how much we miss each and every one of you. We hope you are all adjusting to the changes you’ve had to make in your daily lives.
During such a confusing and difficult time we feel that it is important that we keep a sense of normalcy for our students and families. To that end, and staying aligned with current social distancing guidelines, our studio is closed for in-studio classes at this time. (We will continue to evaluate weekly).
We have leaned in to online/virtual classrooms. We are excited to share, we will continue to teach our regular schedule to our students at their normal scheduled times! Using Zoom, students can log into their online classroom and join class! Our KU performers are very special people. They need the performing arts in their lives to express true selves. We are confident we can still bring our students their KU classes, Dance, Ensembles, and Performing group! Our team has been hard at work to make this a reality. It’s quite a learning curve for all of us, especially yours truly. May I take this moment to thank Taya, Bailey and Sierra for combining their skills to take KU to another level.
It is so important to me and our staff to keep the healing powers of music and dance as present as possible in our Performers lives. And the familiarity of their KU teachers, choreography, songs, etc, will be a bright light, I know! In these uncertain times, our KU community can rally together and support each other. Our students can still see each other and connect in virtual classes. Together, we are stronger.
Dear KU Friends & Family Christmas Morning we entertained thousands of folks at the annual Salvation Army Christmas Dinner. We got involved with the Salvation Army Dinner Program in 1995 & have never missed a show since.
Some of the comments were: “What a fantastic year at KU!! Amazing kids” “Amazing!, The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!!” "The Christmas Morning show is their favorite show of the year." Thank you; we know exactly what you mean. It's our favorite show too!
And so this is a love letter to all of you: We could talk about how bright your eyes are, how lovely your smile, how warm the touch of your hand--and that would all be true. Most of all, we want to tell you how grateful we are that we found you, that we found each other. That we have become a Family called Kids Unlimited.
As we are in our 35th year, this will be an important milestone for all of us at KU. We started with a cassette deck & a handful of kids that loved to perform. Today we have grown to an organization that provides a “Safe Stage” for children to express themselves & gain the Courage & Confidence that is required to become a productive & caring adult to make the world a better place for the benefit of all. Our future depends on children like these. This last year, KU has provided well over $65,000.00 in Scholarships
Thirty Five years is not a long time when you are surrounded by Friends & Family that have bonded together over the years, Together we have watched our children grow up to be Talented in every way, whether becoming a Professional Entertainer, Teacher/Mentor to others, or the Head of a Large Corporation. And of course, dedicated parents that want the same opportunities they have had growing up in KU.
Yes we do have former members that have grown up & brought their own children back to continue the tradition. We are so proud of that. Please help us continue, Dear KU Family & Friends. Your Tax-deductible donations make a huge difference in our being able to nurture these growing children with the best training we have to offer. Thank you for your generosity in making this possible. With deep appreciation, Vince & Carol Sottosanti Founders of Kids Unlimited
Have you ever met a "GLIMMER"? (check out our camp video below)
Perform as one of our performing group members and know what it feels like to shine. Dance your heart out and learn to do so with solid technique. Sing that song that is in you and let others hear it, loud and clear. Act out and get a standing ovation.
Kids Unlimited is a non-profit 501(c)(3) performing group for children and teens that has been a part of the Tucson community since 1986 (30 years). With the primary purpose of providing Tucson youth with an opportunity to exhibit their individualism through the performing arts, Kids Unlimited is committed to providing a safe stage for all of those who love to perform. The goal of Kids Unlimited is to build confidence and self-esteem in all of our performers. Kids Unlimited gives them the chance to express their creativity as they blossom into inspired and successful young adults.
Our lessons are planned so that performers and dancers will: Be safe Feel secure Receive individual attention and encouragement Develop self-discipline Experience success in order to develop a positive self-image Develop singing, dancing and acting skills
At a recent show a guest commented about the professionalism of our kids and the "Vegas style show" that our kids performed!
