Class Offerings

Early Dance Division – ages 2 1/2 – 5

The Early Dance Division offers classes in Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, Pre-Tap And Hippity Hop to children ages 2 1/2 – 5. Ages are listed simply as guidelines for placement. Students progress best when placed in levels most appropriate to their abilities. Students in this division will participate in one performance of our year-end recital.

Child & Youth Dance Division – ages 6-12

The discipline and vocabulary of traditional ballet, tap, hip hop, modern and jazz is taught to children ages 6-12, in Levels 1-3.  We strongly urge younger students who have an interest in moving into our Elite Dance Program to take multiple ballet classes a week.  In addition to ballet classes we also encourage adding jazz, modern, tap or hip-hop for dancers who desire versatility in movements and style.

Changes and advancements for children to their next level of study in dance are made only upon the recommendations of the faculty and/or Director. The MADC class syllabus has been designed as a two-year program of study. Students are evaluated constantly and will be advanced to the next level depending upon his/her progress. Ability is the only criteria for advancement, not age.

Teen & Adult Dance Programs – ages 13 & up

The Teen, Adult dance program at Mack Avenue Dance Center is without a doubt one of the leading dance training programs for young adults available in Michigan.

Classes and methodology are designed specifically to impact and garner swift progression in teenage dancers, guaranteeing unsurpassed instruction in both the recreational, and competitive programs. We provide a fun, high energy, and positive environment for all of our dancers.

No distinction is made between student types, as “recreational” students, who choose to dance for pure enjoyment or physical activity, are given no less consideration then their competitive counterparts who have chosen to make dance their primary extracurricular pursuit. Regardless of program concentration, all students are given the tools needed to exceed expectations and excel to their individual fullest potential.
These hallmarks are made possible only by hosting one of the greatest faculty teams in the region. Students are afforded the distinct privilege of training with only the most skilled and experienced dance educators in the area.
