on stage. You can be a part of Daedream

starting at age 5 years to adult. Daedream

charges a fee to participate that varies from

year to year.

One of the directors of Daedream is Marlon

Harris. He is 25 years old and loves to teach

dance to kids.

This year at Mauro-Sheridan they are

rehearsing a play called “ROAR.” Harris

said. This play is about an evil magician

who turns humans into animals and now

they are dancing their way to freedom. This

play will take place at Willbur Cross High

School on Friday June 2nd and Saturday

June 3rd. This will be a fun show

for parents and kids to enjoy.

In Daedream there are about 50 students, but

next year they are hoping to get even more.

They are also hoping to get their own


Daedream was founded by Ms. Kim Francis

who is a former New Haven Public Schools

teacher of 35 years.“I started Daedream

because I grew up with music and dance in

my family and wanted other people to be

able to experience it in an affordable way,”

she said. “Daedream has a lot of meanings,”

said Harris. “For me, I see Daedream as a

family. Daedream means I’m helping others.

Yes, we do dancing, singing, acting and

stuff. But our main goal is to make good

people. We want the kids to grow up to be

great adults for the world that we need.”

Every day, one of the Daedream

staff comes to your classroom

and picks you up. They bring

you upstairs to do your

homework then they bring you

downstairs to start dancing.

It is a five day a week

program. There are currently 19

staff members. All the Daedream

staff are very proud of all the

students in Daedream for doing a

great job for these past couple of

years. Speaking of all these

years, Daedream has been at

Mauro Sheridan for 15 years and

has been running 35 years


All the Daedream staff are very

nice, kind, and respectful. All the

dancers {kids} are very lucky to

have such kind staff, they take

care of their dancers and treat

them how they need to be treated

as a dancer. Some of the past

students from Mauro-Sheridan

are now staff for Daedream. If

you would like to learn more

about performances, how to join

and how to donate you can visit

That is all about the wonderful

Daedream and we hope to see

you at the play!
