Dancers, acrobats, and families -
It has been an awesome start to the 2019-202 season here at KDS. Thank you so much for allowing us to teach your children, get to know them, and share our love of dance.
Just a few reminders and announcements as we head into October!
Monday, September 30th, KDS will be hosting a fundraiser for breast cancer research and support for the fighters. This will be a free master class taught my Imagine National Talent director Shaun Moe. This class is free but we will be collecting donations for the Imagine National Challenge Breast cancer research charity. Ages 6-11 years will have an hour long class offered at 6:30pm in studio A and ages 12 and up will be offered a master class at 7:30pm, also in studio A. We are hoping to raise a nice chunk of change for this amazing organization and have a whole lot of fun dancing. These master classes are open to all KDS students as well as dancers from any other studio. So bring a friend and your jazz shoes!

Monday, September 30th - Saturday, October 5th will be bring a friend to dance class week. All recreational students will be welcomed to bring a friend of similar age to participate in classes with them. This is just a fun way to share our fun and learning with the community. Everyone who participates will receive a special treat for joining us or bringing a friend. Competitive dancers may also bring a friend to either a ballet or technique class. If your friend loves class and signs up, you will receive a $10.00 credit on your account to use for tuition, costume, or merchandise sales. Remember friends must be in the same age bracket as the class they are attending.
As a general reminder - lesson fees are due by the 15th of every month. Late fees are applied to accounts on the 20th. Please make sure you are paying lesson fees on time to avoid additional costs.
Costume deposits are due ASAP. We will measure students for costumes at the end of October and start selections and reservations in November and December. Costume balances will be published in November and due in January. We must have payments to order your students costumes. This will include acro classes since they will be participating in the recital this year!
October 24th - 30th will be our annual Halloween parties and our first parent viewing week. Students in 5th grade and under may wear costumes to class and bring treats to share. Treats must be individually wrapped. Older students may also participate with treats but should still be dressed to dance, a hat or headpiece and or makeup is acceptable. Parents will be invited in about midway through the class to watch a combo of the things classes have been working on so far this season. There will be no dance classes on Thursday, October 31st so students may enjoy celebrating the Halloween traditions. Mark your calendars and watch for reminders!
Please be aware the owners of the property have installed cameras and speed monitors in the parking lot. People using high speed through the lot will have their plate numbers recorded and turned over to the police. We have been having a lot of issues with people speeding in the lot and for the safety of all, especially the kids, our landlords have taken these actions. Please drive slowly and watch for littles.
Thanks again for a great start to the season. We hope you are enjoying your classes and please never hesitate to come to us with any concerns or suggestions. Thanks for treating our new studio remodel with kindness and respect, it is very appreciated. We will continue to strive to provide your dancers with fun but structured classes, a top notch facility, and a comfy second home.
Have a great month and happy dancing!
Miss Kerri and staff
