Mary Jane’s School of Dance will be heading to New York City this Thanksgiving to participate in the 91st Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Forty-four of the group's high school students will be dancing in the parade with dancers from across the country, performing under the name “Spirit of America Dance Stars.”

The group arrived in New York City Saturday and will return Friday, Nov. 24. The dancers will spend countless hours rehearsing for their nationally televised performance that will be aired live on NBC on Thanksgiving morning. Not only will the dancers have the opportunity to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, they will also explore and experience everything that is unique to New York, such as a Broadway show, a Statue of Liberty Harbor Cruise, the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular and much more.

Mary Jane’s School of Dance is owned and operated by Mary Jane Maxwell and Mary Bray Mehrzad. Students from both the Bamberg and Orangeburg studios will be participating. This will be the fourth time Mary Jane's School of Dance has participated in the Macy's parade. Maxwell and Mehrzad said  they like to take a group to the parade every four years so everyone gets an opportunity to be a part of the amazing event.
