  • Dancers competing in Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary, Lyrical, Tap and/or Acro must take a 45 minute conditioning class, 1 hour ballet technique class and be training in their competing dance style’s 1 hour class.

    For example: If you are competing in JAZZ, you need to take 1 hour jazz technique/recital class, 1 hour ballet class, and 45 minute conditioning

Why Mandatory Classes?

At MDA, we want every competitive dancer to have the best chance at success. In order for that to happen, dancers need to be physically and mentally capable of performing within their dance style SAFELY and CONFIDENTLY. 

We place a large emphasis on training and safety at MDA, and having mandatory conditioning classes will help all of our dancers learn how to channel the correct muscles without strain or injury.

Although ballet is not the foundation of all dance styles, our ballet syllabus focuses on proper turn out, body alignment, and mental focus. These are the building blocks to classical dance training, as well as provides dancers, especially those performing in Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary and Acro, a strong base needed in order to successfully execute difficult skills.
