2023 RECITAL AND DRESS REHEARSAL DATES 

Please mark these dates down and keep these dates open.  All classes will perform in one rehearsal and one recital.  We will head into our dance year with this goal in mind and be ready if changes are necessary. 

RECITALS: May 05, 06, (2 shows on the 6th.)

DRESS REHEARSALS:  April 25, 26, 27. The Recital Breakdown of what class performs in which show will be available in early 2023. 

If you have more than one child dancing or a child taking more than one class a week, please be aware that you could be involved in more than one show.  This would mean purchasing tickets for all shows you plan on attending. 

There is so much more going on at KCDS !  We are proud to be in our 35th year working towards guiding another generation through Dance!  

"Dance is about performance and fun and dance is also about building life skills, self-confidence, self-esteem; models teamwork and co-operation, encourages a solid work ethic and positive attitude."
