Friday, August 28, 2020 -- We e are planning to open the Fall Schedule in-studio with reduced class sizes and strict safety precautions in place. Weather permitting, some classes will be held outside. Students have the option to attend class on Zoom with live streaming from the dance room. We are also offering some special Zoom-only "Pirouette Parties."  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

Saturday, April 3. 2020 -- Our studio will continue to be closed through Saturday, May 2, 2020. It is with great optimism and hope that we return on May 4, but only time will tell. We miss you all so much, and we pray daily for the safekeeping of our students, families and friends.  

Sunday, March 22. 2020 -- The most current school closures mandate for the State of Illinois is through April 7, 2020 (return on Wednesday, April 8). We will remained closed during this time, or later as deemed appropriate. We are aware that the Chicago School District is closed through April 21, and it is possible we could be closed that long as well. But at minimum, we will follow the State school closures mandate.

Saturday, March 14, 2020 -- It is with heavy hearts, and even fear and anxiety, that we must take action to help keep our students, families, and community safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. But we must all do our part in minimizing and stopping the spread of this potentially life-threatening viral infection. Therefore, we will follow the closure mandates for the State of Illinois public schools, and we will close our facility for the same duration.

Additional information will be posted regarding our make up classes and practice videos of recital choreography, as well as how we move forward in the session, so please visit this page often. We will also be using our Facebook page to make announcements, and to post fun activities for students, siblings, and parents to do. 

We sincerely thank our families for being understanding and supporting our unprecedented decision to close the studio during the middle of a session. But we all have to work together to be safe, and to keep each other safe.

We will miss our students, but we look forward to reopening to continue our preparations for our 2020 recital, "Hello, Broadway!" on Sunday, June 7, 2020.

Sincerely,
MDA Staff
