Chill Hill: Cool off with some delicious soft serve or hand scooped ice cream at Chill Hill in Vickery Village. I love their new fixed pricing model!

Drama: Take your kids to the theater by seeing a drama or dance performance this summer. There are plenty of options through Cumming Playhouse, Stipe Studio, Cumming Dance Academy, Forefront Arts, etc.

Eat from the Food Trucks: The Food Trucks n’ Forsyth County is back this year and even better. With over 12 food trucks, kids activities and live music. This would be a fun family or date night out!

Cumming Dance Academy Is Expanding To Dawsonville

CDA_new logo

CDA North Is Opening January 9, 2017

In its thirteenth year of business Cumming Dance Academy, Inc. is set to open a new location in Dawsonville, Georgia in January of 2017. CDA North will open in the Dawson Village shopping center located right at the intersection of Ga 400 and Hwy 53. This 3rd location will hold a state of the art dance facility complete with sprung floors, double barres, and a waiting room for parents with a viewing window. CDA North will offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop for students ages 2 and up.

Cumming Dance Academy, Inc. owner Niki Jernigan-Watkins is thrilled about the opportunity to bring quality dance education to Dawsonville, where she is a resident with a young son at Kilough Elementary.

“We’ve had great success over the last 13 years in the Forsyth county area with many dancers traveling to us on a weekly basis from Dawsonville, Big Canoe, and the Dahlonega areas,” Watkins says. “I constantly hear from families in the area that they wish we could bring the studio up north closer to the Dawsonville area. CDA North gives us the opportunity to do just that! We are so excited about the chance to work with new families and new dancers in the North Georgia community.”

Though classes won’t actually begin until January 9, 2017, CDA is busy building out the space to include all the parts Watkins has learned are needed in the perfect dance studio over the years. This will be Watkins 12th dance studio room that she will build from scratch and turn into a room for young dancers to explore their talents and build self-confidence. CDA North plans to hold several Meet & Greets during November and December and also will be offering free classes to students of all ages once the space is ready to open.

“We hope to see a lot of new faces at our Meet & Greets and free trial classes,” Watkins says. “It’s a great chance for us to connect with the students and families and for them to see what CDA is all about – quality dance instruction, character development, and care for our students.”

Originally established in 2003, the studio opened its first studio in a shopping center in downtown Cumming. By 2010, Watkins had built a free-standing studio that would serve hundreds of dancers for years to come in the Forsyth and Dawson communities. Watkins hopes that the addition of the Dawsonville location will continue to bring growth not just for the studio but for the community as well.

“With the addition of CDA North, we hope to continue our leadership in the community which we have become known for in Forsyth and bring our talents to those in North Georgia area. We feel so fortunate to be able to enrich the lives of those in and around our study through dance.”

CDA North is currently registering for classes which will begin in January of 2017. Spaces will be limited and with CDA’s history – we encourage everyone to reserve your spot now. Classes will fill quickly!

Summer Fun in Forsyth County for Kids A to Z

summer-fun-in-forsyth-county-A-to-Z

Who’s ready for some Summer Fun in Forsyth County?  We’ve made a Round-up of Summer Fun in Forsyth County for Kids … from A to Z.  Maybe you’ll enjoy all of them, maybe you’ll pick a few here and there, no matter what you do we hope it gives you some ideas for Summer Fun with the kids in Cumming GA and throughout Forsyth County!

Here’s to SUMMER …

A Park Tour – My kids love going on park tours – we’ll hit 3-4 parks & playgrounds in Forsyth County and go from park to park, it makes for a fun afternoon!

Bowling – Take in a game or two at Stars & Strikes.  Definitely make sure you sign up for Kids Bowl Free – a must for our family in the summer!

Cool off at the Aquatic Center – The Cumming Aquatic Center is the place to be!

Dance Productions – Our friends at Cumming Dance Academy put on a great show each year, plus they run some great Summer Camps too.

Enjoy a StoryBarnes & Noble and the Forsyth County Public Library offer some great story times throughout the summer.

4th of July

Fourth of July Festivities – The City of Cumming is the place to be!  From the parade to the fireworks, it’s a fun, two-day event for the whole family.

Go Ice SkatingThe Ice offers open skate through the summer – a great way to cool off on a hot day.

Hike – Even on a hot day, a hike of Sawnee Mountain provides a lot of shade and a great, fun workout.  And if you’re lucky, you might even see some of the Fairy Trail. You can also check out the new Mountainside Trail. (Note – this hike is much more difficult. Probably would be best for children that are 6 or older)

Indoor Playground – Did you know you can visit Superior Play just to play?  Open play is available every Wednesday & Friday at their Alpharetta (Forsyth County) super store from 10am-1pm.  Great way to play but out of the Atlanta heat.

Jump & Bounce – Another great way to escape the heat – Catch Air and Monkey Joe’s offer a lot of fun the kids.Don’t forget to check out their FB page for discounts.

Kid’s Workshop – During the summer, Kid’s Workshops continue at both Home Depot (first Saturday of each month) & Lowe’s (2nd & 4th Saturdays of each month).  It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

Library Summer Showcase – The Forsyth County Public Library always has a jam packed schedule of fun with their Summer Showcase series – magicians, puppet shows & more!

BUSY SEASON AHEAD FOR CUMMING DANCE ACADEMY

Performances, Fall Registration, and Summer Dance All Kicking Off This Month

Cumming Dance Academy is excited to kick off another exciting season of dance this month. The studio is wrapping up their 11th season with a week of end of year performances, beginning a busy summer of classes, camps, and intensives, and launching registration for their 12th season! Niki Watkins, owner and artistic director, is thrilled to see so much continued interest and activity at the studio more than a decade into business.

“We’re so fortunate to have so many wonderful students at CDA this long into business,” Watkins says. “We’re ending our 11th season with an incredible week of performances and gearing up for our 12th season by launching our summer session of dance and our registration for our fall classes. It’s a busy time at the studio, but we couldn’t be more excited for it!”

CDA’s 11th annual end of year shows will take place from Tuesday, May 26th-Sunday, May 31st at West Forsyth High School’s performing arts center. This year’s theme, “Wild Wild West,” will feature cowgirls, gold miners, prairie girls, outlaws, and more! With eight shows that week, it’s sure to be an incredible end for the 2014-2015 season. Visit http://cummingdanceacademy.com to view all show dates and times.

Summer dance at CDA kicks off in June. From week long camps to drop in classes to three day intensives, there’s something for every age and skill level at CDA this summer. Camps, intensives, and classes are open to dancers ages 2 years old and up. To view specific dates and times for all summer dance events visit http://cummingdanceacademy.com/summer-2015/.

Finally, registration for the 2015-2016 dance season officially opened to the public in early May. Classes are open in a variety of styles including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, acro, theater, and more! Classes are being offered at all three of Cumming Dance Academy’s location for dancers ages 2 years old through adults. To view class schedules, pricing, and more, visit http://cummingdanceacademy.com/class-schedule/. Registrations can be done online for classes to begin this September.
