We are thrilled to be hosting the 3D Convention from DX Events at our facility this December. Dancers age 5 and up are eligible to attend. Visit https://www.dxevents.com/convention for details and registration.
Looking for another way to connect? Join our private Facebook group called MDU Student and Parent Community! This is a place to meet and connect with other studio families for encouragement, education and an inside peek into daily life at the studio.
We are excited to welcome 4 NEWJunior Faculty Members (JFAC) to our team: Taryn Meyer, Anna Rautiola, Jillian Reitzel and Grace Vannucchi! These talented young ladies are excited to be available for subbing, private lessons, birthday parties and other special events at the studio. If you see them around the studio (or subbing a class) please give them a warm welcome.

This year's Christmas Cookie Social performances will be held December 19-21 on our in-house stage! Additionally, our Performing Groups will be having a special Winter Showcase performance on December 22. Proceeds from this event are used to send upper level dancers to Dance Revolution which is a Christian-based youth dance convention
Approximately one third of classes are invited to participate each year. Participating classes were announced in our 2019-2020 Programming Brochure and recently received a "Christmas Cookie Social Details" email with additional information.

In the event of inclement weather, and email will be sent and a Facebook post made by 2:00pm if classes are cancelled (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 cancelled 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.
