It’s hard to believe that our Fall Semester 2015 Open House isn’t very far off.

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 and enter prize drawings.  Not only will families have the opportunity to win MCA swag, but lucky families could also win a gift certificate to Rochester’s premier dance attire store, Blades to Ballet, Pointour, which offers walking tours of historic Winona, or a pass to Winona’s newest family attraction, The Playground or to the Children’s Museum of La Crosse.

In addition to the usual events at the open house, this year will feature a Second Chance Dance Sale. Over the years, MCA has acquired a significant amount of dance shoes and attire that we would like to pass along to a good home. In light of that, we’ve decided to offer it to our patrons at a reduced price. Tables will be set up with items to peruse and all funds raised will be used to support the MCA scholarship fund and other programs. If any MCA families have attire that their dancers have outgrown or has fallen out of use, you may request a table to sell or swap your items as well. The Second Chance Dance Sale is a great way for us to grow as a community by helping to provide each other with necessities for creating beautiful art.

Mark your calendars now for the Semester 1 2015 Open House and Second Chance Dance Sale, Wednesday, September 2, 2015, 5-7pm.
