What's Happening at KEDA--March

Hello dance family!

Spring is in the air and just two short months away from the end of this dance season and into summer! We’re almost there!

Thank you for all the costume orders coming in! If you haven’t completed your costuming payments, the time is NOW to avoid late fees and ensure you receive your costume in time. We  are so excited about our intimate recital experience this year and promise to bring you a lovely show that will leave you feeling all kinds JOY VIBES! The students and staff are working hard to make this a wonderful show and we appreciate your support!


Attendance is crucial these next two months! We need everyone in class so that we can rehearse and space our dances to the best of our ability. We want our dancers  to feel confident on stage and we are a team out there so we need to rehearse as a team as well! Be here!  Please remember to email the office if you know you will be absent so our teachers can plan for classes accordingly.


Next Saturday April 10, is the Expressions Company’s Production of Mulan! Please show your support to KEDA, and the Purpose Performing Arts Foundation by purchasing tickets to see this show! It’s outdoors at the Port Orange amphitheater at 6:00pm and it’s only an hour and half with intermission! It will be a fun night out for the family supporting your dance family! Tickets are available for presale only in the KEDA office! You can also pay online through the KEDA or Purpose PayPal and your  tickets will be available in the office to pick up before the show. Come out and enjoy this unique dance  production of MULAN!!


April tuition is now due! Please see your Jackrabbit Parent Portal for all of your account balances. If you have any questions or concerns please email the office at

Student Choreography showcase

Dancers! Get your routines together to present to the moms for our Mother’s Day kid choreography showcase! On Saturday May 24 @ 2:00pm we will have a showing of all the pieces that wish to enter the showcase. If you would like to participate make sure you have choreography together by then so we can plan the show and pull costuming from the closet! The show will be here at the studio Saturday May 8, at 2:00pm.  This is one of my favorite performances because it really shows the kids talent... and it’s dedicated to the moms! Please rsvp in the office if you know you’d like to participate so we can start a list of dancers!


Time to reserve your spot for summer camp! Listen to your Heart - Summer Arts Camp, July 5-31 9:00-4:00! We have schedules available for students ages 4 and up this year, so email the office and we will send you a packet of information to look over with your family! This Summer’s Express production will be “ANNIE!”It’s going to be a fun summer,  make sure you stay involved!


Please remember to help keep our building clean by cleaning up after yourselves. Remember to keep yourselves clean too! Wash your hands, and sanitize before and after classes, and please continue to respect each others space.

Shoes are getting misplaced and mixed up! Please make sure your name is written in your things, and check to make sure you’re only leaving the studio with YOUR belongings.

Please no parent parking in the front loop for drop off and pick up. We’d like to keep those spots reserved for staff and ballroom. Thank you.

Thank you for dancing with the KEDA family! We love and appreciate each one of you!
