Thank you for your LOVE of DANCE!
July 1, 2021

When we were forced to postpone our 2020 I LOVE DANCE Season, we never imagined we would find ourselves in nearly those same shoes once again during our 2021 Season.

We were also forced to push back again several cities, and we were certainly so very sorry for any postponements - obviously beyond our control - and for any inconvenience.

We remain positive that “We will ALL Rise and Dance again.”

Our revised 2021 Season Schedule brochure (bottom left) is current for this Season with only Chicago remaining - a lovely full day celebrating DANCE on Sunday, July 25, 2021.

We are so proud of the determined Dance Schools who already joined us in: St Augustine, Wichita, Billings, Pittsburgh, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Houston, Memphis and Bay City.

Please keep in mind, we will always strive to make our events a reflection of the love you feel for Dance and for your Dancers.

The I LOVE DANCE Family - and YOU and your families will get through these uncertain times that reshape and continue to change every aspect of our lives.

Kim McKimmie is so appreciative of your support and she is dedicated to being at your service producing our future events with respect and integrity.

You may be confident that our common sense approach for 2021, 2022 and beyond has your safety as our priority. We assure you that ALL of our precious Dance Studio Owners and Directors, Dance Teachers, ILD Staff and Judges and ALL of our Participants and their families are at the forefront of our thoughts and in our hearts and prayers for their health and success.

Our 2022 Season will be published next month — our dates next year are already confirmed for:

March 19 & 20 - Jersey City / March 27 - Pittsburgh / April 2 & 3 - Los Angeles / April 9 - Houston / April 9 - Wichita / April 23 & 24 - Chicago / April 30 & May 1 - Des Moines / May 1 - Bay City / May 7 - Boston / May 14 - Seattle / May 14 & 15 - Billings / and May 21 & 22 - Buffalo / with more dates and cities being finalized this month.

We are proud to be BACK ON OUR FEET next year - and proud of ALL of YOU for keeping the LOVE of DANCE a priority in your lives.
We hope you'll follow our Facebook posts. We include fun Post-Competition photos of Award-Winners with trophies, Dancers posing at our "photo op" area, Dance Teachers and Judges engaging with our happy Participants. We strive to have content that is encouraging and amusing.
We have kicked off our 42nd Season (again) in 2021 and are ready to welcome you with open arms.

The years have DANCED by (42 years!) with over 1,000,000 participants to date.

At I LOVE DANCE, we work hard to make Dance Teachers, Dancers, and their Parents happy with our organization and upbeat, positive atmosphere. You'll find only NICE Dance Teachers and NICE Dance Moms participate.
