Our Team

We are the Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania area's premier competition team. MCDC has received many accolades and awards through competitions, conventions, and intensives. These include Top Overall Scores, Best Technique Awards, Showmanship Awards, many special Judges awards and thousands of dollars in Scholarships. We are focused on raising strong, talented and marketable dancers – dancers that can grow to be in world renowned ballet companies, perform on Broadway, join the Rockettes, and book jobs in Hollywood. We pride ourselves on being well rounded through high level technique and performance value.
