kick dance 15 yearsThe studio in Fair Haven and Rumson celebrates 15 years with personal stories from dancers

Fair Haven, NJ (February 15, 2016) – Kick Dance Studios in Fair Haven and Rumson is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2016. The studio is celebrating with special events and stories featuring its dancers, families and instructors.


The studio specializes in beginner dancers of all ages and offers training through pre-professional levels. Dancers go beyond technique to develop important life skills, learning to be respectful, confident and conscientious young people who share their gifts and talents with the community. Kick offers a wide variety of dance, acro, and mommy and me classes for all ages and abilities, and the goal is to provide the highest quality training while developing a love for the arts.


We treat each of our patients as part of the family at Atlantic Highlands Animal Hospital. We offer top-quality surgical and dental treatments for cats and dogs. For the best pet care in the Atlantic Highlands, NJ, call us at (732) 291-4400.

Just a few of the reasons the studio is celebrating include:

Community. Kick Dance makes giving back to the community a priority, encouraging community outreach and community service from its dancers. This fosters students to become great people, on and off the stage. Each year, the studio chooses a charity to work with, and all proceeds from fundraising efforts support that organization. This year’s Kick for a Cause event is supporting Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation (LGEF), and will be Sunday, February 21, 2016, at 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. at Monmouth Regional High School, 1 Norman J. Field Way, Tinton Falls. The event will showcase more than 170 dancers and tumblers ages 4 to 15. One ticket is good for all four acts, and can be purchased at

LGEF helps local families in need by providing a variety of services, from utility bill and medication payments to grocery shopping and food distribution. Since its inception in 2009, LGEF has helped over 80 families in the Jersey Shore area.

Friendship. For children, making new friends comes much more easily when surrounded by other kids who have a similar interest. At Kick Dance Studios, the friendships made during classes and performances are often lifelong ones, and the bonds created make for strong and fluid performances.

Instructors. Kick Dance instructors are the heart and soul of Kick Dance Studios. The studio has musical theater experts, classically-trained ballet dancers, jazz and tap pros, and even a former Rockette on staff. Their real-life experience translates into life lessons for the dancers.

Confidence. Kick dancers go beyond technique to develop important life skills, learning to be respectful, confident and conscientious young people who share their gifts and talents with the community. Kick focuses on both personal development and teamwork.

Team. Team programs are focused on compassion, teamwork, commitment and life skills. Kick’s competition team allows dancers with a passion for performing the opportunity to showcase their talents. They’ve performed at Walt Disney World, ABC TV, Madison Square Garden, and have won numerous awards at both the regional and national levels.

As Kick Dance Studios celebrates its big 15, they will be featuring dancers, instructors and families and the personal stories that make them unique. The campaign kicked off with Sadie Marino, 5, of Monmouth Beach, the model of perseverance.

Sadie didn’t always take to dancing. In fact, when she started at age two and a half she would participate as an observer, only watching classes. But Sadie persevered and stuck with dance. She went from being shy to the star of the show. And she loves it. And not only that, she’s good at it. Read more about Sadie’s story here.
