How about treating your child to an introductory dance class?

Dress Code

Dress to impress!

Having the proper shoes and attire helps dancers achieve a full range of motion and safely execute various dance moves. It also helps teachers monitor the dancers’ movements to ensure they are learning and displaying the correct technique for proper execution of movement and injury prevention.

Following dress code goes hand in hand with practicing self discipline and respect – important aspects of class etiquette here at MDC, as well as valuable life skills that we instill in our dancers.

All required attire and shoes are available for purchase at the studio.
