Dear MDU Families,
We are proud to continue to offer consistent weekly class experiences that support the physical, social-emotional, and mental health of our staff and students. Since reopening in June of 2020 we have made all necessary adaptations to our programs, following local, national, and industry guidance in order to support a Safer Studio™ learning environment.

Additional information about this change in recommendation from the CDC and WDHS can be found here.
MDU continues to see an extremely low incidence of Covid-19 in our programs while experiencing very high positive reports of the benefits of keeping students engaged in activities. Our building continues to maintain enhanced cleaning protocols including state-of-the-art air circulation. We continue our enrollment management with 50% of our student body in the building less than one hour per week. We continue with our current mask policy.
We continue to do what is necessary. We also continue to plan for spring performances, sharing hope and confidence with our students of brighter days ahead!
We continue to be here for our staff, our students, our families, and our community <3.
Thank you for continuing with us!
