Our new logo to kick off our 25th Anniversary!  

Hi Everyone!  


It is crazy how quickly the year is flying by!!  We are only 10 weeks away from our recital "Broadway...Here We Come!" on Saturday May 28 at Stockbridge Theatre in Derry!! This Newsletter contains many important messages regarding that show as well as summer and fall information!!  Our Recital Center on our new website is now available and will be updated as new information becomes available!  We have just added the dress rehearsal schedule, Picture Day schedule as well as the recital handbook which explains everything in detail!!  As always please be sure to ask any questions you may have!!!  

Costume Pick Up Week Wednesday April 13-Tuesday April 19
Costume Balances have posted on accounts

Costumes are starting to make their way in!! It is getting very exciting for the dancers.  We will begin costume pickup on Wednesday April 13-Tuesday April 19.  Accounts must be current in order to take costumes home.  Costumes must be picked up by a parent on the day of class as all costumes are organized by day.  In most cases the costume will include tights and all you need to know about hair and shoes.  

Please note: it is possible that some costumes will not be in by this date.  In that case we will let you know when to expect them.

The pictures you see on our website are from the catalogs and shoes will be what we use in class.  So, please do not buy new shoes or sneakers until you see the checklist!

If you have not seen the pictures of costumes please go to the Recital center of our website to view!!  
Picture Days
Friday May 6 and Saturday May 7
On Friday May 6 and Saturday May 7 we will be holding our annual Picture Days at the studio.  Dancers should arrive in costume 10 minutes prior to their class scheduled time.   Note: if you are having trouble finding your dancers class please do not hesitate to ask!  This scheduled time is for the group.  You have the option to arrive early or stay after to get your dancer's individual or with sibling picture.

Book Your Birthday Bash
Allow Us To Make Your Child's Day Truly Special!


The votes are in and MHDC is the way to go for celebrating your child's special day! Dedicated to making each party a unique experience, MDHC offers a variety of party themes, in addition to  creating your own theme! Kids love the non-stop fun and games while parents love the ease of planning and hosting (not to mention not having clean up duty).


Here what a couple parents had to say:


"The girls all had a fabulous time! Miss Adria had them up and grooving the whole time with fun, active games and dance routines! The staff took care of absolutely everything, all we had to do was bring the cake and party favors and then enjoy watching the fun!"


-Carol Goff, mother of Chloe  


This year I decided not to have my daughter's birthday party at home to avoid dealing with the after party mess. I saw the MHDC website offering Birthday Bashes and thought it could work. I was right! My daughter had the best time celebrating with her friends. The girls danced, played several games and the staff was super professional, efficient and sweet! I was thrilled that I didn't have move a finger while enjoying and having quality time with the moms! If you are looking for a great place to celebrate your child's birthday party, think MHDC! They take care of all the details, your kids have fun and parents feel pampered by the staff!



-Isabela Bennet, mother of Cassia
