This is our last Newsletter in 2019. Classes are working well together and it thrills us to see dancers progress as we present new technique, combinations and routines. We know what direction we are going; now we have to go at the same time to the same beat on the same foot. Lots of hard work lies ahead. But we will do it!!

We have many classes this year with out standing attendance. It is wonderful for class progress and so much easier to do costume measuring when there is a body to measure and we don’t have to guess. After Christmas Break – please, let’s keep up the great work. (Thank you Parents ~ we have a feeling you are behind this success story.)
Congratulations too all the RAD Ballet Dancers that will take their exam.
Thank you for Dancing with KCDS!
