Notes From the Director

Welcome back! We are excited to start our fall session of classes that includes a Musical Theatre Dance Workshop for the first 8 weeks of classes! If dancers 13 years of age or older are interested, please register as spots will fill quickly.

As we begin the new dance year, we would like to ask parents to join their child for the last 5 minutes of the first class. This will give the instructors time to introduce themselves, answer questions, and hand out any pertinent information for the upcoming dance session, including our annual calendar, schedule, MCDC policies, and a campus map. Our Student/Parent Handbook Is available online.

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak with your child’s teacher, or contact Tara or me at any time at

Lastly, we would like to welcome Patricia Statkiewicz, Samantha Chu, Noah Dach, and Elizabeth Thompson. These four Muhlenberg College dancers will be part of our Fall Teaching Practicum and will be observing and assisting in several of our classes this session! We would also like to welcome adjunct Muhlenberg faculty member Megan Flynn, who will be teaching MCDC classes this fall. You can check out their bios on the website!

We look forward to a fun and educational fall session with our dancers!
