September Schedule:

We will start back on Saturdays on September 8th. New students are welcome to join. There is a $25 registration fee for new dancers and monthly classes are $32.00. Hardshoe class is an additional $20 per month. We will keep the same time schedule as last year. Classes will also be held on the 15th and 22nd.


The recital was scheduled for October 7th. However, due to a large number of dancers taking the summer off, I have postponed it. As in the past, we were going to apply a $100 participation fee to each dancer (with reductions for families). Having the recital in October would not give families enough time for the 3 month payment plan we implemented for other recitals.

We will be having a Parents Meeting in early September to discuss this and other fund raising activities.

Please keep checking the Blog and your Email for other summer performances.

Camp Dost

On Tuesday, July 10th...Some of our dancers and I traveled to Millville, Pa to Camp Victory. We were asked to perform for Children with cancer through a program called Camp Dost. There were approx 65 campers there. We danced a few numbers and then taught the campers the Haymakers Jig. Almost30 campers were able to get up and dance with us.

It was a night we will never forget. I have never been so proud of our dancers. They were outgoing and helpful and understanding. The parents of the dancers were also moved by this experience. We should all be very proud of these young dancers.

We were asked to come back again next year; but before I could answer, the dancers all said YES! We took some great photos and I hope to have them up on the blog soon!!

A special thanks to all the parents that took time out of their busy schedules to drive to Millville.

The dancers that participated were: Molly K., Maeve K., Caitlin C., Colleen C., Kayle G., Shannon, Katie and Patrick J., Mia O., Bridget F., Erin K., and Sarah B.
