September ​2022 Monthly Dance​ ​Notice

 

Welcome​ ​back​ ​dancers!!​ ​​ 

We hope that you enjoyed this beautiful summer. ​We were very busy over here with dance camps, intensives, parade practice, and Studio 2 getting a makeover. We are very excited to start our new year at Kerry’s​ ​Dance​ ​Center​ ​that will be celebrating​ ​its​ ​35th ​season!!!  Woohoo!!!! Just a reminder, classes start this  Tuesday, September 6th. 

       

Chester 300th Celebration Town Fair and Parade:

KDC will be participating in the Chester 300th Celebration Town Fair and Parade September 24th. This will happen RAIN OR SHINE. ALL of the KDC dancers are invited and welcome to march in the parade. 

Ms Lena worked with the 2021/22 dance teams and pulled together some traveling choreography. New members can learn the choreography from Ms Katie and Ms Bryanna during your upcoming classes.

All participating dancers will wear a black kdc logo t-shirt or this past black recital t-shirt, black leggings and sneakers. Dance teams must be in full make up, wear their team jacket and lyrical turners.  

We will meet at 135 Chester Street by 12:15. There will be a long wait time there because the parade does not kick off until 2pm. The coordinator told me this is because they will be closing off the road and want to make sure that our participants get to their meeting spot. KDC will be in the first(blue division) part of the line up (7th in line). Parents can park at Busch Academy and either take the shuttle or walk to the ball field located to the right of Chester Academy. I (Ms Jennie) will meet you with our dancers at the KDC tent. I am looking for a handful of our 15+ dancers to walk with our younger dancers in the parade. Please text her (603-785-8517) to let me  know if your teen can commit to this. 

 

Updated Dance Schedule: 

Please check our website KerrysDanceCenter.com for the most updated class schedule located on the “Schedule” page. We have numerous “FULL” classes but still have availability and even added a PreDance class to Saturday. 

 

Live Feed Viewing: 

Coming soon!! Studio 1 and 3 will have live feed viewing in our waiting rooms. This will be a direct connection, NOT connected to the internet and not recorded. My amazing husband is hoping to get that up and running by the second week. 

 

Parking: 

I have staggered class times to help with parking. Mondays are going to be the busiest. Please be mindful when pulling in. Go slow! Pull your car in nose first as far up to the grass line. There is parking along the tree line to the far end of the parking lot and the extra dirt parking to the right at the far end. Pull as far in as you can. If you have a large vehicle, please park closer to the beginning of the parking lot. My husband and I will be monitoring and addressing  this to help with any issues that arise.
