Theater Connection is an integrated dance-and-theater experience offered in both fall and spring, This program is designed to guide students through the theatrical process, enabling students to grow and discover new talents. Each session concludes with a staged production.
MDA's Theater Connection is dedicated to the belief that theatre training promotes self-esteem, builds confidence, stimulates creativity, sharpens communication skills, fosters an appreciation of team work, raises cultural awareness, celebrates diversity, encourages respect for self and others and lays the foundation for a lifelong love of the arts. The study of theatre not only trains students to be better performers, it inspires them to be better people.
Inspired by Marvel’s hit show WandaVision, available on Disney Plus, MdaVision took performers through the decades of movies and TV shows! Our show opened in the 50’s and concluded with material current today! This production featured students dancing, singing, acting, and more as they showcased their talent and versatility... ON LOCATION! That’s right. Performances were videoed in different locations… the park, the gazebo, the lake, and more! Performers cultivated solo & ensemble performance skills, acting technique, character development, theatricality, vocal direction, and choreography in a safe, socially distanced environment.
