Pursue Passion, Achieve Greatness: KAR Pro:tégé.

KAR's Pro:tégé Program is more than just dance; it's a community. Here, dancers from all walks of life bond over a shared passion, forging friendships that extend beyond the stage. Dive into KAR Pro:tégé, where every step is a shared journey.

What is the Pro:tégé Program?

The Pro:tégé Program offers dancers the incredible opportunity to travel, assist, and train with industry leading choreographers and master instructors on KAR’s National Convention Tour. Our unique Pro:tégé Program provides an immersive experience for dancers to grow their skills while gaining hands-on industry experience.

After attending our workshop and an audition, dancers are selected from every convention city on tour to be Pro:tégé Performers. These dancers become eligible to audition for the Elite Pro:tégé Program, an unforgettable, leveled up experience for your dancer! Every step of the way, from the workshop, to the audition, to assisting on the convention tour, KAR Pro:tégés work with mentors who prepare them for successful professional dance careers.

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to work with sought after choreographers and creative directors like Nancy O’Meara, Faliceano Turk, and Ryann Alvarez! Learning from these award-winning, seasoned professionals is an unparalleled opportunity advantageous to any aspiring dancer. Dancers in this program will make invaluable connections with some of the industry’s biggest names, landing them in meetings with top agencies who represent artists like Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Nickelodeon just to name a few!
