TERM 1 END DATE & TERM 2 START DATE
Term 1 ends on Saturday, December 9th (at the exception of the “rescheduled classes” held the week of Dec. 11th).
Term 2 starts on Monday, January 15th 2024.
The “RESCHEDULED CLASSES” schedule was sent in a separate email on December 5th. We hope that all dancers can make it for their rescheduled class(es). If your dancer cannot attend these classes, please let the teacher know PRIOR to the class.
PRACTICING DURING THE HOLIDAYS
All teachers should have uploaded the most recent version of the recital dance onto the SportsEngine App. This will help dancers practice during the holidays. We suggest reviewing the videos at least once a week in order to remember the choreography upon return in the New Year.
There seems to have been some confusion among some parents concerning which App to download on your phones. Please make sure the SportsEngine logo looks like this:

*PLEASE NOTE: Yes, you read correctly: Many groups will be rehearsing at Theriault auditorium on EASTER MONDAY. We wanted to give everyone a fair warning ahead of time because we know this is supposed to be a “day off”. We had no choice but to schedule groups on Easter Monday. We will make sure to provide the detailed schedule as early as February so everyone has a lot of time to plan ahead.
Thank you & Merry Christmas to all!
We appreciate you and feel blessed that you chose MKDA for your child’s dance education! Much love, happiness, prosperity and health in 2024!
