Children’s Dance Schedule

July 8th, 2017 by amanda

To all the parents of our children’s dance groups, there has been a change in this year’s performance schedule.

On Sunday of the Festival the evening children’s performance has changed this year from a 5:30 performance time to a 5:00 performance time.

The change has been made to the daily schedule as well to reflect the new performance time.

For any questions that may come up, please feel free to email at jcscandiafest@hotmail.com and don’t forget to check in on our facebook page.

A huge thank you to all the parents who bring their kiddos out to dance!
