About MADC

Grosse Pointe’s most established Name in dance Education

At Mack Avenue, we believe dance education is valuable. Research has shown the physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of dance education in young children. In addition, our students learn that dance brings rewards far beyond a trophy—we have seen our dancers develop a passion for and commitment to the arts throughout their higher education and beyond.

Many of our dancers have gone on to schools such as Julliard, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Norwalk Conservatory of the Arts, and Wayne State University. They have been accepted at prestigious summer programs from American Ballet Theater, Broadway Artists Alliance, Broadway Dance Center, Juilliard, Joffrey Ballet, Ballet Met, Alvin Ailey, Kirov Academy of Ballet, Chicago Ballet, and Sarasota Ballet. They have danced professionally for companies such as MarCat Dance and Pina Bausch.

We love our community and work closely with GP Schools and organizations such as Kids on the Go.

Whether you’re looking for a fun, welcoming experience for your child’s first dance class or a studio where pre-professional training is rigorous and rewarding, we are here for you!
