Mission of the MCDC Program For Young Dancers
The Muhlenberg Community Dance Center Program for Young Dancers offers a safe and supportive environment in which students can explore their creative and physical potential under the guidance of an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teaching staff. Taught in the state-of-the-art dance studios of Muhlenberg College, the curriculum gives students flexibility to design their own course of study, exploring a wide range of dance styles according to their interests. The faculty focuses on providing developmentally age-appropriate dance education for all levels, carrying a child from the earliest creative movement experience through pre-professional work. Emphasis is placed on educating the whole child, providing not only physical training and dance technique, but also a cross-curricular approach to creative expression, with a focus on developing self-confidence and a lifelong appreciation for the creative arts.
