     We would like to congratulate ALL Team Members on a very successful competition season.  MTSD took home many High Scores, Titles, Special Judges Awards, Choreography Awards, Entertainment Awards, Scholarships & the most prestigious award of highest scoring routine of the entire event.  All team members worked very hard this season and we could not be more proud of all your accomplishments.  We would like to thank parents & family members for your love and support that you show for each individual team member & the MTSD staff, it does not go unnoticed.  Lastly it does not matter what the trophy or medal says, it is how each team members feels about their performance when they exit the stage. We hope that you end this season with many great memories, laughs and friendships made that you will carry through your lifetime.

     We are happy to announce that Miss Brianna Sandrelli (owner of Academy of Dance Arts) will be joining our talented staff this summer and fall.  She has decided to close her studio and share her talent with our MTSD students.  Some of her students will attend MTSD in the summer and the fall and we would like to welcome them to our dance family.  Due to the increase in students that will attend the studio, we recommend that you register for classes early.  Miss Brianna is certified in Acro, as well as many other dance disciplines and we are excited to welcome her to our dance family.

      Just a reminder that if you have not registered for Summer Classes, please do soon as soon as possible, as some classes are filling up very fast.  There is a $30.00 deposit required at time of registration.

Competition Team Pre- Payment Plan

The payment plan is MANDATORY FOR ALL TEAM  MEMBERS.  The payment plan begins in July and will continue for the months of August, September, October, November & January for the ALL Teams: Mini - Miss Kiera, Junior (Blue) - Miss Kiera, Junior (Red) - Miss Tanya, Teen (Blue)  - Miss Kiera,  Teen (Red) Team - Miss Tanya,  Senior Team – Miss Tanya & ALL Hip Hop Teams.  Fees collected will be applied to Entry Fees and Teacher Travel Fees.  If any money if left over at the end of the competition season, it can be applied to tuition, recital Costumes & summer Classes.   Payments are due on or before the 10th of each month.  A $10.00 Late fee will be added weekly thereafter (NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE) if paid after the due date.  This policy will be strictly enforced in the 2017-2018 season.  We hope that this budget plan will help with the expense of competitions.  We do realize that some parents use their tax returns for expenses.  Tax returns can be applied toward any leftover competition entry fees, recital costume balances and tuition.  Cash and checks only please, as payments go into a separate account.  Parents that participate in fundraising can apply those credits to any competition balance that may be left or recital expenses.  Competition Pre-Payments and Competition Entry Fees are NON REFUNDABLE and NON TRANSFERABLE.  If a team member competes in a Tap routine a separate $15.00 teacher travel fee will be added for each regional event.
