Midwest Youth Dance Theatre

About MYDT

Midwest Youth Dance Theatre began as a dance studio in September 1994, with a commitment to provide all students with high quality dance training matched to their level of commitment and ability.  Our student population includes girls and boys, and ranges in age from 3 to 63.

What we do:

At MYDT we focus on offering performance opportunities to our dancers.  Every year we produce two large performances: a spring show for all of our dancers, and a themed winter show offered to Level 3-6 dancers. 

MYDT also attends 1-2 dance competitions every year.  Level 3-6 classes participate at the discretion of their teachers.

Other past MYDT performance opportunities include two trips to perform at Walt Disney World in Florida, an appearance on the Fox 9 Morning News, charity events, and the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Talent Contest.

Our focus is on:

  • Including all students without auditions
  • Tasteful costumes and age appropriate choreography
  • Providing classes to meet your needs from "just for fun" to preparation for a college dance major or a career in dance
  • Providing performance opportunities including two major performances and one dance competition each year

We consider the staff and students a part of our family, and feel a great sense of community with the families who are our customers.
