Education: The Radio City Rockettes

The Rockettes are an American precision dance company. Founded in 1925 in St. Louis, they have performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, since 1932. Until 2015, they also had a touring company. They are best known for starring in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, an annual Christmas show, and for performing annually at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The Rockettes also conduct the Rockette Summer Intensive for dancers aspiring to be Rockettes.

Dedication: Dance Family Unity Tree

Our dedication portion of EDC is usually something we do together at the studio, but we are asking the kids to do it from home and bring it to the studio. We are getting a Dance Family Unity Tree for outside the studio!!! We will have it lit up so you know which one it is. We are asking dancers to make a decoration and hang it on the tree when they are swinging by the studio. Something that reminds us we are awesome and amazing when we work together. They can decorate plastic ornaments, make salt dough ornaments, laminate paper ornaments, etc. Something that won’t get too ruined in the cold and snow. We will keep you updated on social media with pictures so you can check it out!

Culture: Donations for COPE Network

Excel is teaming up with the Community Outreach Prevention & Education Network (COPE) to ask for donations for those in our community who are in need. They are in need of camping-style supplies including tarps, tents, blankets, candles, winter clothing, jackets, gloves, fire cooking materials, and more. We will have a donation box in the front lobby where you can donate anything you feel would be helpful. We are very excited about this partnership and hope that this will encourage important conversations about the needs of our community in your home.
