Christmas Parade Information

We always enjoy participating in the Liberty and Pleasant Garden Christmas parades each year! While call times and locations can differ, dates are the same each year.

  • Liberty Parade: First Saturday in December
  • Pleasant Garden Parade: First Sunday in December


Who can participate?

All of our students are invited to participate! Younger students are invited to ride on our float, while older dancers can dance and walk behind our float! Due to limited space on our float, we recommend reserving your spot as soon as sign ups open. We ask that you initially only sign up for 1 parade so all dancers have a chance to participate. If there are open spots in either parade as the date approaches, we are happy to invite dancers to ride the float in both parades!

Performance Team dancers are required to perform, and dancers in our levels 2-4 classes are invited to sign up to learn a parade dance to perform behind our float! There will be extra rehearsal times, and all are mandatory; TBA by October.


What do participants wear?

Performance Team dancers will wear the team dress, and all other participants will need to purchase our Christmas themed SESD sweatshirt or t-shirt! White gloves and earmuffs are permitted.


Do we have to sign up for both parades?

Of course we would love to have high participation in both parades, but you are welcome to pick just one!


Is there any extra cost?

Float riders need only purchase the themed t-shirt or sweatshirt. Non-Performance Team dancers will need to purchase the themed attire as well as turn in a $5 participation fee that will cover the cost of rehearsals.
