From the Directors

Dear Friends,

Rehearsals are well underway for our spring performance of Where the Wild Things Are. We are looking forward to performing next month for our family and friends and seeing all the dancers’ hard work come to life in Baker Theatre! Tickets for the performance are available by calling the box office at: 484-664-3333. (Youth tickets are $5 and adult tickets are $10.)

We also offer the opportunity to send well-wishes to your dancer through our Messages of Good Luck that will be shared in the Where the Wild Things Are program. If you or any of your young dancer's other supporters are interested in writing a message (text only) to a special dancer, please fill out this form and return it to us by April 20:

Program Message form

You can help publicize the show by printing out the official Wild Things poster and hanging it up wherever there are people who might want to attend! We can still use your help in other ways, too! Fill out the volunteer form to sign up!

Summer Youth and Adult Classes

As we prepare for summer break and family vacations, we’d like to remind you that MCDC offers summer classes to keep your growing technique fresh in your minds and bodies and allow your flexibility to continue improving. If you are unable to make all 6 weeks of classes, please consider dropping in! We offer a drop in rate per class if this works more readily in your schedule.
