“Put on Your Sunday Clothes” and we’ll head to
“42nd Street” so we can “Give [Our] Regards to Broadway!”
All students who are enrolled in the 2020 Winter and Spring Sessions can participate in our annual recital. It is an opportunity for students to showcase what they have been learning throughout the year. By performing, the children not only gain confidence and poise, but their appreciation for the performing arts grows immensley.
Students are not required to participate in the recital, but they are encouraged. We understand, however, that there may be important events that families are already committed to. Therefore, children can still enroll in classes and learn everything being taught, including the choreography, so they continue to progress with their classmates. It is important to note that MDA does not spend the entire classtime teaching recital choreography.
Students in combination classes (Pre-Ballet/Tap 2 and 3) will perform TWO dances, a ballet and a tap dance. All other classes will perform ONE dance. We will have three performances. All Pre-Ballet level classes will perform in ONE show only. The upper level classes will perform in the 11:20 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. shows. Our Academy Performing Troupe will perform in the 4:30 p.m. show.
Why do we require participation during the Winter and Spring Sessions? There are several reasons:
