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.   

As such, we have updated our protocols to match recently updated guidance from the CDC and Wisconsin DHS, which shortens the isolation/quarantine period to 5 days for individuals who test positive for COVID-19. The updated process is as follows:

Students or Staff who receive a positive test result should:

  • Report the positive case to MDU via the COVID-19 Self Reporting Form.
  • Isolate at home for 5 days and until symptoms are no longer present.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

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!
Miss Misty

Safer Studio Policy 10-6-20

Hi MDU Family,

Just popping in to say no worries. There is no disruption to your services based on Gov. Evers's new order today. 
  1. Our building is quite large and spacious. For example, in just one area of our building (Studio 2 and 3) we have an occupancy of 300 and we have a max of 30 kids in that one area. That's 10%. We are nowhere near hitting the new limit of 25% for our building. We have been limiting and tightly managing enrollment since we re-opened in June under our Safer Studio™ and continue to do so ❤.
  2. We are not open to the public. We are a private, enrollment-based studio and our only public area (the lobby) has been closed since March. This order is focused on bars, restaurants, and retail. We are focused on "barres", "releves", and we have already had our retail season and it was appointment-only and not open to the public <3. 
Just wanted to get ahead of any questions! 
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in class!
