​ABOUT US

TKO is celebrating its 12th year of teaching and building confidence and self- esteem through the art of dance. Here at TKO our teachers pride themselves on getting to know each student and emphasizing their strengths and abilities through solid technical training. In addition, if any one of our students plans to make dance a priority in their life, he or she will gain extensive dance knowledge and dance training to help them succeed. We specialize in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Modern, Salsa, Acro/Gymnastics, and much more. Over the last 11 years, we have established ourselves as one of the premier dance studios on the East Coast. Recently we were named one of the top 6 dance studios in the nation from the Star Dance Alliance. Currently, TKO is the #1 recreational and competitive dance studio in Queens and we not only offer competitive programs, but recreational programs as well. Our classes begin in September and conclude at the end of June. Every year in June, TKO puts on a grand recital that showcases the hard work and dedication of every student who attends our dance academy. Our elaborate recital is full of dramatic lighting, beautiful décor and wonderful routines that highlight the theme of the show. If you ever have any questions or concerns, always feel free to speak to our two directors, Kareem Hills & Tommy Tibball. Again, thank you for making TKO Dance Academy #1 on your list, but more importantly, thank you for giving your studio directors, Kareem Hills & Tommy Tibball and the entire staff of TKO the opportunity to develop you and your child, not just as a dancer, but as a person through the art of…DANCE.
