Notes from the Director

Let me start by saying thank you for a wonderful eight week summer session! We met so many new dancers and we were excited to see our returning students too. The program was quite a success, and I personally enjoyed the opportunity teaching our students once again.

Our fall brochure is here! And we are excited to offer new all Boy classes Thursday evenings! We will have one class for boys ages 7-10 and a second class for boys ages 11 and up, Thursdays at 5 p.m. in CA 226. These classes will focus on ballet and jazz technique while sampling other styles such as tap, hip hop, and Irish dance. Classes will be taught by Muhlenberg dance faculty member Teresa VanDenend Sorge and Muhlenberg dance student Tommy McCarthy. Students can wear comfortable fitted clothing with socks and clean sneakers or jazz shoes.

We also moved the days and times of our tap classes! Beginning Tap (ages 7-9) will follow Beginning Jazz on Saturdays from 11 to 11:50 a.m. Our Intermediate Tap class (ages 10-13) will be held Thursday evenings from 6 to 7 p.m. Students older than 13 can still tap with MCDC! Muhlenberg faculty member Shelley Oliver offers Tuesday evening classes to those older students interested in continuing their tap studies.

If you are a new or returning student with questions regarding your child’s placement in any of our other classes, please call 484-664-3087 or email us at

We are also offering an Early Bird Special: Register on or before Aug. 12 and we will waive the annual registration fee of $15!

Enjoy the rest of your summer! Classes start Sept. 2!
