This is our last Newsletter in 2021.  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 and we will do it!!  

A NOTE FROM MISS KAREN:  This time last year when I was putting together the December Newsletter, KCDS was on Zoom - November 26 - December 3. We are ahead of last year and grateful to be back on the dance floor. At this time in person viewing remains on pause.  In December we will post snips of classes on our private facebook page. 
If you are not a member please send us a
request.  Please note; Our KCDS facebook page is a private page, a request needs to be made and accepted in order to join the page.  It's important we recognize your name.  If your name is not in our system please also send us an email note with your child's name so we can confirm their registration.   We look forward to in person viewing when it is 100% safe to do so.

ATTENDANCE

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.)
