As the director of Milford Performing Arts Center, I believe that all dancers are special. I am dedicated to providing quality dance training to all students regardless of age or experience. I am proud to offer a qualified and dedicated staff. We believe that students learn best in an atmosphere of patience, support and positive reinforcement. Whether dancing in our recreational program or our competitive program, you will receive the same personal attention, respect and exciting learning opportunities. ~ Heidi Goldbach
We are proud members of the following organizations: Dance Masters of America, National Association of Dance and Affiliated Artists, Dance Teachers Club of CT Inc, ASCAP and SESAC.
Our Fall classes begin in September and in June a recital is held.
In August we offer a fun summer dance program. Dance camp is held for one week, Monday to Friday with times depending on age. At camp we have classes in all disciplines of dance, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Theater and in addition to classes we watch dance and theater related videos, play games and do fun arts and craft projects. Our experienced students love the chance to get together in a fun relaxed atmosphere to get back in shape after the summer break and our new students and beginners love the chance to try all the subjects because it helps them decide what to sign up for in the fall.
In addition to our recital classes we also have a performing dance company. If you are interested in auditioning then please call for an appointment. The MPAC Performing Dance Company dancers perform competitively throughout the United States and Canada. During their travels, these talented young performers have been offered many opportunities including a chance to perform at the Nationally televised Orange Bowl Half Time Show, at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, at Lincoln Center and the Nutcracker on Broadway, to name a few. They have performed and shared the stage with many performers including the Harlem Globetrotters, Radio City Rockettes, the cast of Footloose and have performed on a Carnival Cruise Ship. The Company is very grateful for their opportunities and enjoy giving back to the community by regularly performing at malls, convalescent homes, assisted living centers, CT Special Olympics and have raised money for charities including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, The United Way of Milford,Dancers Responding to Aids and have participated in food drives for shelters.
