Dear MDU Family, 

This evening Gov. Tony Evers addressed our state issuing Executive Order #94 that calls upon business leaders "to continue doing their part to keep workers, customers, and communities safe by expanding working from home options for workers, offering online or virtual services, and limiting the number of people in offices, facilities, and stores" - all things we are PROUD to say we have been doing since we re-opened in June. 

We have been following our Safer Studio™ Standards every step of the way through this season and continue to do so.  Our team members have work-from-home capabilities, we are fully tech-enabled with online and virtual options, and we have always limited the number of people in our offices, facility, and store.  

We have had over 10,000 visits to our studio since re-opening and only 4 isolated reported cases of COVID-19 - that's less than 1/100th of 1% occurrence.

Our strong focus on safety has made it possible to maintain a very low-risk environment while allowing our young people to benefit from exercise and friendship in a safety-focused environment as well as the associated positive benefits on social-emotional and mental well-being.

We are proud to continue to be a positive anchor in the lives of our local youth and we look forward to seeing and supporting your children in classes this week.  In the meantime, please join us in doing all you can to keep our community safe by wearing face coverings, keeping the recommended 6 ft distance from friends and classmates, washing your hands, and staying home if you are unwell.  For the safety of our community, if you are unable to or prefer not to wear a face covering, we strongly encourage you to attend our virtual class options. 

As always, your teachers and I thank you for your support.  


Miss Misty

Darby's Dancer Program 2019-20

Thank you for your interest in the Darby’s Dancers program at Misty’s Dance Unlimited. Darby’s Dancers is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by the parents of Darby Jones of Huntsville, Alabama. Darby’s Dancers provides an opportunity for children with special needs to participate in the performing arts through dance education. Charitable donations to “A Chance to Dance” 501(c)(3) provide the funding for Darby’s Dancers at Misty’s Dance Unlimited (MDU).

At once-a-week classes, Darby's Dancers learn various styles of dance in a fun, encouraging atmosphere. Dancers in the program gain confidence, coordination, strength and lifelong friends, all while feeling like a star. DD also provides volunteer opportunities for teens. Our student volunteers learn important lessons in responsibility and friendship by providing one-on-one assistance to each dancer.

DD classes are taught by Miss Denise Meyer and take place in donated studio space at Misty’s Dance Unlimited. The charitable contributions of youth volunteers, dance instructors, community dance studios and local businesses allow DD to provide dance classes, classroom attire and recital costumes to special needs dancers at no cost to their parents.

2019-20 Darby’s Dancers Classes will be held on Fridays:

5:30-6:00 PM - Younger Group (Ages 3-7)

6:15-6:45 PM - Older Group (Ages 8+)

Classes begin on Friday, Sept. 27, 2019. Dancers will meet their buddy and get fitted for classroom attire and shoes.

The season ends with a Spring Recital performance in May 2020.
