Notes From the Director
Dear Friends,

I’d like to take a moment to invite you to find out more about Muhlenberg Community Dance Center’s program by regularly visiting our website. We have a wonderful website that provides not only up-to-date information on our classes and teachers, but also our Student/Parent Handbook; the annual calendar, so you can plan ahead; information on our performances; and descriptions of the adult classes we offer each semester.

I would also like to direct you to our "Articles of Interest" tab which hosts current articles from various scholarly resources on dance technique, performance, nutrition, and education! As students of dance, it is important not only to hone our skills in the studio, but also to know what is currently taking place in the amazing world of dance! Take a look here.

Lisa Bottitta-Busfield
MCDC Educational Director
