September ​2023 Monthly Dance​ ​Notice


Welcome​ ​back​ ​dancers!!​ ​​ 

We hope that you enjoyed this beautiful summer. ​We were very busy over here with dance camps, intensives, and parade practice. We are very excited to start our new year at Kerry’s​ ​Dance​ ​Center​ ​that will be celebrating​ ​its​ ​36th ​season!!!  Woohoo!!!! 

Just a reminder, classes start today Tuesday, September 5th. 


Chester Town Fair and Parade:

KDC will be participating in the Annual Chester Town Fair and Parade this Saturday, September 9th. 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 dance teams and pulled together some traveling choreography. We were also invited to perform after the parade following the Pinkerton Academy marching band. Performance will be in front of the DJ stage at approximately 12:15.

All participating dancers will wear a black KDC logo t-shirt or this past black recital t-shirt, black leggings and sneakers. 

We will meet at the Chester Town Office parking lot by  11:15. 

Parents can leave their dancers with Ms Lena and Ms Bryanna (and older teenagers). The dancers will be brought to the KDC tent at the Chester Academy ballfield where you can pick them up from me (Ms Jennie). 

Updated Dance Schedule: 

Please check our website 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 Thursday. 

Please be patient as we shuffle through our first few weeks.

Live Feed Viewing: 

Studio 1 and 3 have live feed viewing in our waiting rooms. This is a direct connection.

 It is NOT connected to the internet and is not recording. 


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 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. 


Statements will be emailed by Ms Katrina this week. Tuition is due by the 15th of each month. A $10 late fee will be applied if tuition is not received by the 16th.
