Happy November Keda family!

As we reach my favorite season of gratefulness, thankfulness and giving I want you all to know how grateful we are for each and every one of you. For dancing with us and believing in us, we couldn’t do it without you and we thank you.

These next few months at KEDA always seem to zoom by. We will be closed November 23-28 In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday and will resume classes on Monday November 29. 

For the entire month there will be a box at the sign in desk designated for our can food drive. Please take some time and donate any items that you can such as peanut butter, oatmeal, canned fruit/ vegetables , soup, evaporated milk, drinks, baby food and any other non-perishables  that you have the means to give in this season of gratefulness. All of the items you give will be donated to Second Harvest food bank and will feed so many families in need and provide some hope and courage during this hard time. 

Last but not least here’s your Friendly reminder….Please remember that your tuition is due before the 5th of each month. Attached is the link to your parent portal on our new Dance studio software. There you can access your students schedule and any fees associated with your account.
