2018 Fall Open House

On Wed. August 22, 4-7pm MCA will hold it’s Fall Open House. The open house is an excellent opportunity for parents and students to meet instructors and administration, ask questions about classes or attire, tour the facility, get fitted for shoes, register for classes, learn about our National Honors Society for Dance Arts chapter, explore an instrument petting zoo and enter prize drawings.  Lucky families could win a gift certificate to Rochester’s premier dance attire store, Blades to Ballet, a pass to Winona’s Indoor Park The Playground, tickets to a Page Series show, or a certificate to Nate & Ally’s Frozen Yogurt.

In addition to the Open House, Dancers ages 5+ are invited to register for a Pre- Audition Nutcracker Audition Workshop during this time frame.

The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is incredible! My children have truly enjoyed being part of the dance-arts community at MCA.  The instructors are skilled artists whose passion shows through as they deliver a developmentally-appropriate curriculum in a child-centered and caring way.  All families and community members are always welcome at MCA and encouraged to be part of the arts in Winona. Thank you MCA and MCA staff and volunteers.

The MCA combos help me step out of my comfort zone and be with people outside my school.  And I got to play a new instrument. There is no pressure to be awesome, just do the best you can.
