Miss Kendra
Spirit Of Christmas Parade

Eastern Shore Shopping Centre
Located on State Highway 181, Exit 38 off Interstate 10 in Spanish Fort!

If your child plans on attending the Eastern Shore “Spirit of Christmas” Parade, they will be required to wear a long sleeve Mobile Bay Dance Academy Christmas t-shirt. Your child will also need black leggings! We will meet in front of the Premiere Cinema Movie Theater at 8:30 a.m. Your child will need peppermint candy to throw.

All children of all ages are invited to participate, even our tiniest dancers.   If you have a little one walking, we do ask you to walk with them! If you did not order a shirt for yourself, you can wear Christmas colors if you prefer. We LOVE LOVE LOVE  doing this little Christmas Parade every year, it is a lot of fun!

Parent Responsibilities & Communication
It is the responsibility of the parents to be aware of all dance studio activities, such as recitals, opening or closings, and picture days. When public and private schools close due to weather, the studio will also close. Dance classes will resume when school resumes. The studio notices are posted on the website, in our newsletter and in your email. We also post to Facebook! Please notify us if your address, e-mail address, or telephone number has changed. We work hard to make the dance experience organized and fun. Keeping you informed is one of our primary goals. Please read all newsletters and other dance class information. The studios primary method of communication with parents is via e-mail. If you are not receiving any e-mails from the us, then please contact us to ensure your current e-mail address is on file. Additionally, please add the studio e-mail address mobilebaydanceacademy@comcast.net to your e-mail contact list so that all communications will display in your e-mail Inbox and not a spam folder. ***Please Note: While all of our student/parent concerns or questions are important to us, we ask that you respect our staff's personal time and not contact them via Text or Facebook messenger. You may email us at any time!
Reminders & Upcoming Dates
No Parents or Visitors in Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom. Dancers eare more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class.
