This was our first year dancing and experiencing he recital show. As a parent of young children who volunteered in the dressing / waiting area during the show, I was incredibly impressed by every child there. Every one of them was respectful, helpful, and kind. MDM and its families certainly have made this a great dance experience!!

Great last day of recital weekend yesterday our dance family is one in a million beautiful girls AND MOMs inside and out.

The 2019 dance recital was the BEST yet!! The choreography was astounding. EVERY dancer was AMAZING as they danced with such enthusiasm and feeling . One moment you were laughing (especially at Mark’s comedy satire) and then another moment you were crying as an emotional dance took the stage. I was left in awe as each dancer expressed their unbridled emotions. Each dancing to a different meaning but, each raw with emotion! I am so blessed to have our dance family!

Mark McCleese is awesome! I don’t think there is any other recital like an MDM Dance Project recital.

We cannot thank the teachers and dance family (friends who become family) for this year. Savannah is finding her dance “voice” and it is to her love and dedication to dance and also to the supporting and nurturing environment that #MDMDanceProject provides....

A truly great studio with a family atmosphere. The teachers take the time with each student to insure they get the most out of it. The summer program and workshops are second to none, creative and fun for the kids. Best recital in town with a creative narrative running through the whole show. Different every year. Wouldn’t trade our experience with Mark and the whole MDM staff for anything!

Best dance studio around Shelby / Washington/ Rochester area. Really developing the skill level of its dancers year over year. Creating a supportive environment where the girls are supportive of each other and are great friends!

We can’t say enough about Mark and his staff. This is not another overcrowded cookie cutter dance studio. The staff goes out of their way to bring out the best in all the kids with individual attention. Love this studio and highly recommend them!

I have been a part of the MDM Dance Project family since the beginning (2013) and it truly has been a blessing. Each year is another year of growth for each child, along with their families. Mark McCleese (studio owner) is so involved in each child’s experience in a way I have only experienced through this studio. We started as a rec family that participated in the yearly recitals, but quickly realized we wanted to be a part of the company family that travels to competitions and has offered amazing, one of a kind experiences throughout the year. When you come in on your first day, everyone welcomes you with open arms and you are brought right into the wonderful MDM Dance Project family!

MDM Dance Project is the best studio around! My daughter left her previous dance studio and joined MDM as a company dancer this year. The studio more than exceeded my expectations! Mark McCleese is amazing! He is so organized, creative, and enthusiastic. His communication, via weekly emails and monthly newsletters, is so thorough - you always know what is going on. He doesn’t overcharge for costumes, like some studios do, and the costumes come in way ahead of time. The other dance teachers at MDM are also amazing! They are energetic, dedicated, caring, and very talented. They have high expectations for the dancers, help them work hard to improve and get them to be the best dancers they can be. The studio is like a family, with many fun events for the company dancers, like sleepovers, Christmas parties, performances at sporting events, banquets, etc. I highly recommend MDM Dance Project for all dancers - you won’t be disappointed!
