Between the 19th and the 25th of August 2016, Angel Dancewear joined “Dance Moms” star Kalani Hilliker on her first ever visit to the UK.
Kalani was accompanied by “Dance Mom” Kira Girard, step-dad David Newman and little brother Jett.
The tour started in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. After Edinburgh, the tour moved into England and visited Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham and finally ended in London.
The format for each of the events was:
- Kalani lead a dance warm up first to make sure all the dancers were fully stretched, followed by a dance workshop.
- Once everyone was suitably worn out – Kalani took to the dance floor to perform her latest dance solo routine.
- Kalani dance solo
- Then there was a question and answer session, with Kalani answers questions from the audience about the Dance Moms TV show, dance class, training, and life in general.
Angel Dancewear supported the tour with logistics, event organisation and sound system. They also took their pop-up-shop selling the Kalani Collection dancewear range, in addition to Kalani’s own merchandise – which included limited edition UK tour t-shirts.
The Kalani Collection dancewear range has been designed by Kalani and is exclusively available in the UK and Europe from Angel Dancewear. It’s a range of dance clothing for girls and teens including dance tops, shorts, leggings, t-shirts and a dancing leotard.
A small number of limited edition Kalani UK tour t-shirts are available to purchase from our website, whilst stocks last.
Just before the London event started, Kalani also found time to took part in a live Q&A session on Facebook with Lifetime TV UK – filmed on location at the London venue.
In between the dance events, Angel Dancewear took Kalani and family on a whistle-stop sightseeing tour of the UK – including visiting plenty of castles! We also managed to take Kalani and family for a ‘cheeky Nando’s’ – which they all loved.
