Season VII| January 2021
We kicked off 2021 with a much needed Website Renovation and are so excited to present to you our new online presence. If you haven't had a chance to check out the new site please take a moment to go look around! We are embracing this new year and all its possibilities. We understand not much is known at this time with California's continued lockdown but we are prepared to continue to do our best to provide the highest level of dance training to all of our families whether in person or online!
Outdoor Classes/Zoom Hybrid Schedule will Continue for January

MDC is Closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

No classes on Monday, Jan 18th

MDC will be closed in observation of MLK Day on Monday, January 18th. All classes Zoom & outdoor will resume on Tuesday, January 19th.

As if we couldn't have predicted this! With the current lockdown we are unable to have our Company Concert on January 22nd.

Our plan is to change our Company Concert to Saturday, February 13th.

We have three plans to ensure we will have the company concert on this date whether we get to be indoors or outdoors!

Plan A- Have our Company Concert Indoors at Center Stage with the LIVESTREAM as planned for December and January
Plan B - Have our Company Concert Outdoors at Garden Street Academy with a limited audience
Plan C - Have our Company Concert Outdoors at Garden Street Academy with no audience and film the entire performance for dancers and their families

If we are able to have our concert at Center Stage we will be hosting a live stream of the performance! We would like to encourage all of our MDC Families to buy a live stream FB Link ($20) and encourage all of your friends and families to do the same. Just think, your cousins, aunts and grandparents around the globe could watch the performance live from the comfort of their own home!

We will also be filming the students with our amazing videographer, Spencer, who will be not only be taking static videos but artistic and creative moving between the dancer shots. He will also be filming behind the scenes footage (documentary style) for a fun, inspirational and long lasting memorabilia videos ($35).

We would like to encourage all families to share the love and support for your dancers this season. This will be the first time in 10 months that they will have the opportunity to perform in a theater with lights, makeup and costumes. Please help us make this a special occasion for them by purchasing a link (one per household) and a video, as a lovely reminder that we did not let Covid stop us from performing.
