At MDU, we go to great lengths to keep you informed and up to date. This is your first monthly E-newsletter of the dance season. Please be sure to read your monthly E-newsletters as they contain important reminders and updates throughout the season on classes, special programs, recital, and more!
In addition to our monthly E-newsletters and other email communications, MDU also posts reminders on our Facebook page and on the TV screen in our NEW "Communications Center" located directly behind the front desk.
If your dancer will be absent from a class, our teachers and administrative staff greatly appreciate you notifying our team via our MDU Absence Form. This form can easily be accessed at the bottom of the main page of our website or CLICK HERE to access now.
