Our mission is to provide a positive, nurturing and quality training in the art of classical ballet and other dance forms. Our vision is to create a platform for youth and young adults who possess raw talent. The goal is to bring self-esteem through dance and to teach dancers responsibility, discipline and time management. MCFA strives to expose dancers to different dance styles, teachers, choreography and choreographers while creating many performance opportunities. Each dancer will be taught with love and respect.
