At MDU, we pride ourselves on keeping you informed and up to date. This is your first monthly newsletter of the 2023-24 dance season. Please be sure to keep an eye out for your monthly newsletters which are emailed out on the first of each month. They will contain important reminders and updates throughout the season on classes, special programs, performances, and more! 

In addition to our monthly newsletters and other email communications, we post reminders on the TV monitor in our "Communications Center" located directly behind the front desk in the main lobby.

Did you know that MDU has student lockers available in both our girls and boys locker rooms? Locker rentals are available for the full dance year (August-May). Lockers are a great way for your dancer to keep all of their dance gear at the studio, have some quick snacks on hand for between classes, and store their belongings during class. If you are interested in renting a locker, click here to review the guidelines and fill out the request form.
