With February being the month of Valentine’s Day, we want to spread that love but in a new way! Next week we will be having an in-class activity to promote positivity, self-love, and encouragement for the students and their peers. Dancers will write notes of encouragement and post them on the mirrors in the studio. That way when they look into the mirrors during class, they will see positive messages reflecting back at them! We want our students to grow in self-confidence and loving themselves in a healthy way!
Stay tuned for information regarding this year’s spring recital! These details will be published on February 15, 2020.

A focus on injury prevention is a vital part of keeping kids happy, healthy and safe in dance. Therefore, injury prevention measures and techniques should be used in every class, rehearsal, or performance and should be a top priority for all dance professionals.
Some common dance injuries include:
Hip injuries: snapping hip syndrome, hip impingement, labral tears, hip flexor tendonitis, hip bursitis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction
Foot and ankle injuries: Achilles tendonitis, trigger toe, and ankle impingement
Knee injuries: patellofemoral pain syndrome
Stress fractures: metatarsals, tibia, sesamoids and lumbar spine
Arthritis: in the knee, hip, ankle, and foot
In the event of inclement weather, an email will be sent and a Facebook post made by 2:00pm if classes are canceled (by 8:00am for morning classes). Please note that we do not necessarily follow school closings as roads are often cleared by the time studio classes begin. Any canceled classes may be made up on your own time from our regular schedule of classes. In the event there is not a make up class available, a replacement class will be scheduled.
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.
