Recital costumes have already started coming in.  Please make sure to settle your balance on your account with Mardi.  We will not allow your child to bring his/her costume(s) home unless the account is at zero.



Francine Lauzon is our studio seamstress.  You may contact her for any alterations you need for costumes: 





These two schedules will be sent out in a separate email by February 10th 2020.  After this date, you will also be able to access these schedules on our ‘Recital Info’ page from our website:  http://www.themkda.com. Make sure you carefully mark down all important dates. 




We are already looking for recital volunteers.  We cannot put on a show of this size without the help of the parents.  It is easy to submit your name; simply go to:   http://www.themkda.com and go to the “RECITAL INFO” page and click on “VOLUNTEERS”.  Here is the direct link:  http://www.themkda.com/recital-info/volunteer/




If you have changed your email address, please inform Mardi ASAP.  In March, we will be sending the link for ticket sales and we want to make sure everyone receives this link.
