Important F.A.Q.s for you
How Many Shows are there & in which one(s) will my child participate?:
- MDA will host more than one show in an effort to keep them at a family-friendly length!
- Each child will participate in one or more of the shows, based on age
- Families with dancers in two shows are encouraged to volunteer backstage as a class mom for one of the shows as we would greatly appreciate your help. You will still be able to watch your child perform on stage from the back of the theatre.

Included in your child’s participation fee is the opportunity to practice their routine on the stage prior to the Showcase day. Details regarding this will be sent to you in April.
Tickets are required for each show you attend.
We will share which show(s) your child is in when we release the running order. This will be well in advance of the Showcase and ticket purchasing, so you can plan your day.
Please do not request your child performs at a particular show time, as there are too many factors that go into creating the Showcase schedule to accommodate individual requests.
All About Costumes
An important element in our Year-End Showcase is the costumes that add color, vibrancy, and beauty to the stage.
We ask if minor costume alterations need to be made that perhaps a parent, neighbor or friend can make these alterations for you as there has been no added charge with which to cover the cost of a seamstress.
Costumes will be given out in class in April/May. A costume Dress Requirement sheet with information regarding costume, hair, make-up, shoes, etc. will be posted well in advance so you can purchase the required items.
Digital Photos Videos Photos & Videos
MDA is using the services of both a professional video company as well as a professional photographer to capture each dance performed at the theater!
You will receive an online link to both photo’s and video which you can share with family! It makes a great keepsake! All dancers share equally in the cost, which is included in your participation fee.
*Note: we will aim to capture each child individually while they perform on stage, however we can’t guarantee this. We can however promise to capture your child’s group performance.
If in addition to the above photo services you will have the option of a solo photo of your child as another wonderful keepsake. Signup details will be shared in case this may be of interest to you.
