Effective Monday, February 1, 2021, we have returned to in-studio classes with reduced class sizes and strict safety precautions in place. Students have the option to attend class on Zoom with live streaming from the dance room. If, at any time, the COVID positivity rate trends upward in our area, all classes/activities may have to be streamed through Zoom only. We adhere to, or exceed, the CDC, State of Illinois, IHSA, and EPCHS requirements. Everyone's good health is our first priority. Together we will dance through this!
We love you and miss you! -- The MDA Staff
Our dance program ...
is a year-round program, September to August. Each week builds upon the prior week, and each session advances with more difficult moves and technique. We have a recital in early June, so we do not accept new students during mid-February through May. If a new student wishes to register after the Fall Session begins, please email us or call at 708-658-6165 for placement.
Experienced dancers ages 8 and older who wish to transfer to Mongan Dance Academy should email us or call at 773-401-6549 to arrange a meeting and demonstration of abilities for level placement by the Program Director. Students must be enrolled by January 1st in order to participate in the annual recital. Students younger than age 8 should register for classes in their age categories.
