Summer Dance Days

MAC June Newsletter

ISSUE 10 · June 2024

2024-25 Season Pre-Registration is Open!

With only a couple of weeks left in our regular season, we are preparing for our Summer Intensives and Fall 2024. Many Summer Intensives are still open, so be sure to register right away.

Fall 2024 Pre-Registration is now open! Check out all that we have to offer in the fall and get on the list for your classes. The $40 non-refundable Registration fee ($65 for families) is all that is required to hold your spot. Remember that we cap our younger classes at 12 students and our older classes at 15. Individual feedback and support are extremely important at MAC.

We want to thank everyone who has joined Madsen Arts Centre in our inaugural season. Working with all of you has been such a pleasure. I have personally enjoyed the adult classes throughout the season and introducing many of you to PBT and Ballet. We also had the opportunity to introduce more children to the world of ballet, which was so exciting! I love when others enjoy ballet as much as I do. We will continue to offer classes for those who have not yet had the opportunity to try dance. We have classes available for all levels, ages, and abilities, with the ability to add more. So, if there is something you were hoping for, please feel free to share.

We are committed to finding our own space, but we are also securing rental spaces to ensure we are not stuck when classes resume in September. We have been talking with new locations and have secured studio rentals for our Monday through Saturday classes.  All studio locations are on the south side of Edmonton. Our new studio rental location is with Inspire Centre (8707 – 50 Street NW, Edmonton). This location has easy access to 82nd Avenue and is close to Whitemud Drive as well.

We have added daytime classes for our homeschool friends, morning classes for adults, and our evening schedule includes classes for Level 1 through Advanced 2 and age 6 and up. We are working to include some Contemporary training for our students. We will update once we have secured a teacher that fits with our Mission. If you aren’t sure if we have what you are looking for, feel free to reach out. We are happy to answer any questions.

Thank you to all the parents who have supported us by joining classes and spreading the word about who Madsen Arts Centre is. We truly appreciate everything! We look forward to continuing to work together for many years to come!

We appreciate those of you who have filled out our Survey. If you haven’t yet, please do! All feedback is very helpful. We are listening.

Extra Classes in June

We have had interest in classes for students to stay in shape before heading off to their Summer Intensives. We have planned some classes at the Inter Fdn/Inter level. If you would like to participate in these classes as well, please feel free to register. If you would like more levels, let us know! We need a minimum of 5 students to run classes.

Summer Events Are Quickly Approaching!

We have a variety of summer programs planned for Ages 6 through Adult. Stay in shape while still enjoying your summer. The majority of these programs are during the day and, in some cases, are finished in the early afternoon. Get inspired, learn something new and have fun meeting new friends!
