A message from the Artistic Director
My Dear MDT Community, Donors, and Friends of Marin Dance Theatre

With the world we know suddenly being turned upside-down, we are all trying to make the right decisions to be safe, to support those around us, and to play our part in this fight against this horrible virus. I want you to know that each one of you are continually on my mind and in my heart. I feel such a deep responsibility to see that when this dark time passes, Marin Dance Theatre and the beautiful world we share together, will be here for you.

Thank you so much for your interest in wanting to support us. This is a crazy time, yet I know together, we will weather this storm. I thank you for your prayers and please know you have mine each day as well. Stay safe and I look forward to the day we open our doors again, music is filling the air and we are dancing!!!

MDT School Closure Update - Wed. March 25th
Dear MDT Community,

We are missing all of you! With so much uncertainty in so many areas of all our lives, Marin Dance Theatre wants to continue to be a source of joy and community. Our teachers want to connect, inspire and support your dancers through this unsettling time. We have received a lot of wonderful feedback on the MDT "At Home Workouts". We have continued to upload new information and videos as frequently as possible. Please continue to check our MDT website for new virtual classes. We are feeling fortunate to have our amazing MDT community dancing together and staying connected even though we are apart.

We also wanted to communicate our hopeful date to return to classes. We are acknowledging that our original date of March 30th for classes resuming is not in line with the Marin County "shelter in place" order. Therefore, we will extend our class suspensions to include the week of March 30th. We also have on our calendar MDT's previously scheduled Spring Break, April 6th - 12th, which we will still observe. Our new "hopeful" date for classes resuming will be Monday, April 13th. Please know we are grateful, now more than ever, for your continued support.

We would not be responding in full transparency if we communicated that all is fine on the financial front of our non-profit school. We are extremely hopeful that our regular sessions for the fourth quarter can begin mid-April. We hope you know that each and every one of us, from our office staff to our amazing faculty and accompanists, adore the jobs we have, and feel it is an honor and a privilege to work with all our dancers. From our 3 year-old Intro students through our strong Junior programs, to our Senior Career-bound dancers, all the way through our vibrant Adult/Open division and our Parkinson's Dance Program, we value each and every student that graces our MDT studios.

We look forward to eventually welcoming back ALL our students to the MDT studios but for now, we hope you all log on to the virtual classes on our website by clicking on the green "At Home Workouts" button on the home page. From there, you will see videos for our "Ballet at Home Series." We did the videos in this format so our families can utilize them to fit their individual timing and schedule. Please make sure you communicate this information to your dancers, as the parent's emails are the primary mode for MDT communications.

Stay healthy and safe everyone!
MDT Faculty and Staff
