Getting use to life without seeing my Dancers is very different. I miss them and the KCDS Faculty!  42 years I have planned for a Spring Recital - I am still planning but for September!  I think of you often and miss my Dance Family!  I want to sincerely thank you for your patience, kindness and support. KCDS Faculty; your commitment to our Dancers is admirable.  I can't imagine navigating this difficult situation without your input - thank you!   In time we will return to our dance lives and when that time comes - we will be more that ready!
