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.
