The MCDS Dance Club Celebrates its 7th year!

We have grown from a core group of seven 2nd and 3rd graders to a club of 46+ students ranging from Pre-K through 9th grade. The Middle School Dance Club toured to New York City this past Spring and enjoyed performing at the Intrepid Museum, attending the Opera, “An American In Paris”, the Blue Man Group and an evening of Jazz at Birdland. A visit to the world renowned arts conservatory at Purchase College in Westchester County complimented dance classes as the legendary Luigi Jazz Dance Center, Broadway Dance Center and with master modern teacher Judith Moss. All MCDS students are invited to join the Dance Club… come see us perform this Winter at our annual Fine Arts Week assembly!
