Dear MDU Family, 

I am writing today with a proactive communication regarding the potential state-wide mask mandate repeal going before the Legislature on Thursday. 

Regardless of the outcome, our business will continue to support a mask requirement (unless you have an exception) until further notice. 

While it is true that we have had a negligible occurrence of COVID-19 in our programs since re-opening in June (.00025%, or 5 reportable cases out of over 20,000 heads in classes, and none for two months) Coulee Region public schools are in the process of welcoming their students back which introduces a new risk variable to our student population. Even if the mask mandated is repealed on Thursday, it would be unwise to introduce a second risk variable to our student population at the same time.

As a teacher and a dancer, I look forward to the day when this is no longer a talking point, but in the meantime, we will continue all of the Safer Studio™ measures that have brought us such success so far including keeping people home when they don't feel well, well checks for employees, ongoing facility cleaning with our Sparkle Squad, hand sanitation, and face coverings. Our community is turning the corner and we need to stay the course until we get there <3. 

As always, we will continue to monitor the situation as we keep our focus on supporting the whole health of our students—including physical, social-emotional and, mental well-being—through dance classes each week.

Thank you for your support! 

In partnership, 

Misty Lown

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!
