What's Happening at KEDA--December


Happy New Year Dance family,

We are excited to get back to dance and get moving in 2021! We hope you had a restful break and are ready to get back to working on DANCE! Classes resume TODAY!!! This semester is jammed packed full of events from fundraisers, to performances and we don’t want you to miss a thing, so be sure to stay up to date on information by checking your email, Facebook, and our website for news!

Second semester at dance means RECITAL!!! January will be our last month of open enrollment and if you are participating in recital, this month, will be  the last opportunity for you to trade and switch your classes so that we have a clear headcount of who is participating in each recital piece. Drop in will remain available for anyone who is not participating in recital, but please keep in mind, with the exception of the clinic classes like leaps and turns and body- conditioning, every class will be preparing and working on a piece for recital.

Recital this year will be held at the Museum of Arts and Sciences on Saturday June 12 2021. We will begin costuming for each class next month! For your budgeting purposes, each costumes for our Demi and Petite dancers will range from $65-$85 and for Level 1, 2, and 3, costumes will range from $75-$95 per costume. You may start paying for your costuming anytime and the balance for your entire costume order will be due by Monday March 1, 2021. It’s imperative that you adhere to the costuming payment deadlines to ensure that costuming for your entire class will arrive in a timely manor. Keep in mind every dance studio in the country is preparing for recital and the sooner we get on our order the less delay and less problems we have on delivery. We know recital time can get costly and we want all of our students to be able to perform with their classes, especially this year, so if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know!

The Expressions Company will be performing MULAN on Saturday March 6, 2021!  We hope the whole studio will support them as they get back out on the stage! They will be hosting several fundraisers over the next couple of months to help them offset some of the production costs. They will be selling Dominoes Pizza cards, hosting a spaghetti dinner  and a pancake brunch, and even a kids night out babysitting service! Please support them by helping out in any way you can! First up, this month will be the Pancake Brunch held on Sunday January 24, 2021. Please come out and support this wonderful talented group of kids!

If you weren’t at the Holiday show, which turned out lovely regardless of the weather threats, then you missed our announcement for our newest endeavor! As you know, KEDA is now partnering with a new non profit organization the Purpose Performing Arts Foundation to supply scholarships and furthered education in the arts. Through the foundation we’ve been blessed with another outstanding opportunity to be an integral part of our community. This month we will begin the framework that will be Purpose Academy of Fine Arts!  We are starting a soon- to-be fully accredited fine arts program that will educate students academically as well as train them in a fine arts focus of their choice. Our pilot program will begin Tuesday January 5, 2021 and our full program will begin with our summer session on July 5. 2021. We are accepting only a select group for the Pilot Program this month, but if you homeschooled this year and are currently using FLVS or Volusia Online Learning, we are offering a transition program for those students to continue their online education while integrating classes in the arts as well, here at our beautiful campus .  The  Purpose Academy will be enrolling students ages 4 and up. Please email us at Purposeacademy.finearts@gmail.com for more information and to apply!

We’re excited for this new year and spending it with YOU! As always please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns at Kedaofficeinfo@yahoo.com regarding the many things we have going on here at the Danceplex! Stay in touch and stay informed! Thank you for being a part of the KEDA family! Dancing ON!
