Notes From the Director

Only a couple of weeks left in the semester and we are preparing to show our families what we’ve learned at our Performance Day Showcase. This will encompass a short demonstration from each class highlighting some of the technical and artistic elements our dance students have been concentrating on since September. Please join us Saturday, Dec. 15 at 2 p.m. in Brown Dance Studio. Dancers will wear their normal class attire and are asked to be there by 1:45 p.m. See you soon!

Student of the Month

We would like to introduce our December MCDC Student of the Month, Michelle Blazofsky! Michelle has been dancing for 14 years. She attends Allentown Central Catholic High School and is in the 12th grade. Michelle's favorite type of dance is lyrical because she is able to express a lot of emotion and really be free in her movement. She loves being able to tell a story through dance. Michelle's hobbies are dancing, art, playing the piano, and hanging with her friends.
